By Theresa Lee, Toshiba – We’ve seen the tremendous impact of COVID-19 affecting hospitals and care facilities around the globe. As the system overflows with patients, there are a few ways we can leverage technology to speed up processes, eliminate errors, and make it easier on our healthcare workers.
At Toshiba, we’re always looking for ways to help customers, and healthcare is a great example. We’re there to help ease the stress of patient care with the simple use of barcodes which can take the pressure off the flow of patients, samples and information.
During the admissions process most hospitals issue identification wristband patients wear throughout their stay. When scanned, the patient’s electronic medical record can be viewed and updated to include details on medications administered, specimens taken, and treatment performed.
