In digital radiology, there is positive patient identification
when the images are acquired, becoming the substrate by which the case is "accessioned" and then reported in the radiology information system (RIS).
We have integrated the Imprivata PatientSecure palm-vein biometrics with our kiosks and tablet self-service check-in solutions, speeding the patient identification process and assuring positive patient identification
Conducted in a pediatric oncology centre, the study used a longitudinal design where data were collected in three consecutive 12-month timeframes--corresponding to periods before, during and immediately after implementation of an electronic positive patient identification
system with bar code technology.
The latest release of the platform builds upon our established foundation of Positive Patient Identification
(PPID) with new modules that support hospitals and health organizations as they collaborate, communicate, and leverage clinical intelligence to deliver safe, high-quality care.
Coinciding with reinforced staff training in blood safety measures and the launch of a new ID Everyday poster, the Trust is pioneering the way for other hospitals around the country with a view to making positive patient identification
mandatory across all areas of health care.
The foundation of effective healthcare is dependent upon positive patient identification
in order to provide the right care, to the right patient, at the right time.
In addition to the enhanced integration with McKesson products, our solutions will be integrated with Imprivata PatientSecure[R], a partner of McKesson, providing positive patient identification
Positive patient identification
and accurate patient demographics: It is not uncommon for a lab order to be generated in the Electronic Medical Records (EMR).
Documents that reflect the most current data ensure positive patient identification
and allow hospitals to optimize the efficiency of document-driven processes across the continuum of care.
Reduction in specimen labeling errors after implementation of a positive patient identification
system in phlebotomy.
From radio-frequency identification to bar-coding systems, positive patient identification
solutions have proven highly effective in preventing these kinds of errors from occurring at the point of care during specimen collection and throughout the entire laboratory workflow, even circling back to transfusing blood products.
When the clinician approaches the patient, the PDA recognises the patient from their smart tag and selects the appropriate patient record and displays the photograph to ensure positive patient identification
