Contribution to Patient Satisfaction and Safety
The healthcare industry involves many processes that need identification, monitoring, controlling and documenting. The technology offers healthcare companies a number of advantages to increase cost efficiency and patient safety.
This automatically tracks or identifies patients and personnel, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, instruments, blood bags or different kinds of samples and helps to prevent human errors and medical malpractice. With the help of this technology, patient records can be automatically updated with the information on caregiver, patient and treatment.
This can add value to medical devices and instruments by ensuring the correct function of the device, adjusting the settings or counting the times a specific part is used. Furthermore, the utilization rate of instruments can be increased, when hospital inventories are better up to date. In addition to cost savings and improved efficiency, the implementation of this will result in higher employee and patient satisfaction and most importantly, improved patient safety.
