UMDC Code : 451830
InfoLogix’s Positive Patient ID (PPID) solutions include RFID and bar code technology to prevent medication and surgical errors before they happen, increasing safety and preventing adverse drug events. Today, hospitals are using bar codes to protect the accuracy of critical patient-care processes, including the dispensing and administration of medications and blood products, the collection and tracking of specimen tests and x-rays, managing and locating medical equipment and other assets, tracking file locations, and assisting in charge capture.
Positive Patient ID begins with a bar code on every incoming patient’s wrist. This bar code holds identity information, reason for admittance, medication prescribed and allergies. Before administering medication or performing a medical procedure, the bar code is scanned to positively identify the patient. This process can greatly reduce errors.
