How barcoding eliminates errors

Errors are inherent to human intervention. Technology has however gifted human’s power to automate and then attest to an error-free environment. Barcoding is first!

    How barcoding eliminates errors

    Errors are generally equated to service or product quality and can greatly impact brand value. Automations to a large extent have helped in curbing manual errors in many aspects of workflow, but data input of appropriate identifiers and tagging also are a key to group/save any kind of information accurately. 


    lHealthcare is a business which attends to millions of patient/client needs in a day using a work force of few hundred

    thousand. 


    lData management is crucial in such states to prevent patient data mix-up, wrong diagnosis and well as inappropriate 

    treatment.


    lHow many times have we doubted the accuracy of the diagnostic report we receive?


    lI am sure majority reading this now will reflect back on that one fleeting memory of doubt. When the reports 

    show something utterly serious not associated with any symptoms experienced or otherwise many suspect goof up and a 

    few also go back challenging the reports.


    lSample/client misidentification apart from psychological stress also has financial ramifications.


    lThe one means which has greatly minimized errors in business operations is “Barcoding”. For the client, it can definitely 

    provide a breath of relief. 


    lBarcodes facilitate as unique identifier source imbibing all patient/client details which can be easily checked and retrieved 

    at any stage by a single scanner.


    Why Barcodes?

    üHelps in error-free sample collection process

    üReduced labeling error on specimen collected

    üCheaper than RFID (radio-frequency identification) and hence does not impact service cost

    üStreamlines lab processes

    üIncreases productivity and promises a safe environment

    üEnsures privacy of patient details


    In this smartphone era wherein your android device can be equipped with a barcode scanner and an appropriate support 

    application, it gives the end user confidence and positively impacts every work flow. Barcodes close the loop in patient safety!


    “Barcodes in blood tests breathe confidence in the process…
