Over 150,000 adverse events occur in U.S. hospitals on an annual basis due to the mislabeling of samples. The key to guarding against such events lies in barcode technology, which allows healthcare providers to quickly and accurately identify patients, their samples, and their clinicians, to provide optimum care.

Barcode technology serves as the bridge between data and EHR—bringing together patient safety with productivity enhancements. The benefits of such technology also extend beyond patient safety—saving minutes per patient, and saving time across an entire shift, across an entire healthcare facility, and across an entire health system.
