Efficiently and accurately record essential patient infor-mationAvoid misdiagnosisWhenever there are news reports of medical malpractice or negligence, one may immediately think of misdiagnosis. It is a stereotype that has been imprinted in people's minds, reminding medical workers to be alert at all times to avoid and prevent similar situations.In order to avoid the recurrence of such incidents, many medical institutions have implemented identification system accompanied with the use of scanners and TSC's barcode label printers. One can now easily access patient’s medical records with this timely identification process. Efficiently and accurately record essential patient infor-mationAvoid misdiagnosisThe procedures are quite simple. Once the patient is registered to stay in the hospital, a personal barcode wristband is printed by the label printer. The patient’s identity can be quickly identified with a barcode scanner in different departments as he or she goes through blood test, X-ray, ul-trasound, urine test and more. By doing this, the doctor can obtain relevant medical records from the central database, and examiners can verify the patient’s identity through the bracelet to ensure that the test results belong to the patient. Efficiently and accurately record essential patient infor-mationAvoid misdiagnosisIn addition, the names of the doctor, the examiner and even the nurse who was present during medical treatment may also be recorded at the time of the patient's visit. Therefore, whenever an issue arises during the medical process, the central database can be checked to quickly find the source of the problem, which significantly reduces the probability of misdiagnosis. Reduce additional administrative burden on medical staffReduce the probability of transcription errors Large medical institutions run non-stop 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide treatment to each patient in need. In order to cope with the abundance and complex workload, an enormous workforce is necessary to make sure the entire medical treatment process is performed smoothly. As a result, medical staff spend a lot of time writing into a "work log" to ensure all patient informa-tion, including the treatment status, medication information, test results are recorded correctly for other staff. The correctness of a completed work log is critical for successful and safe treatment for each patient. Reduce additional administrative burden on medical staffReduce the probability of transcription errors However, filling out paperwork is time consuming and can often run into staff's break time. This can result in physical and mental fatigue on top of an already stressful environment. The combi-nation of factors has a detrimental effect on medical service. One of TSC's partners developed a system to help alleviate the amount of time spent on paperwork. Combining a TSC barcode label printers with a scanner, the quality of medical care is greatly improved. Reduce additional administrative burden on medical staffReduce the probability of transcription errors The TSC portable barcode printer prints out a personal barcode for each patient. Whether during emergency medical treatment or hospitalized treatment, the barcode can provide information on medication, specimen, pathological biopsy, or various types of medical records. The medical staff simply needs to carry a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) or information-based medical cart during checkups. By scanning the wristband of the patient, the medical staff can identify the records, key in the medication given, do checkups and upload information through the internet to the central database for future viewing, making the transitioning process for the medical staff simpler and smoother. Reduce additional administrative burden on medical staffReduce the probability of transcription errors Such a simple and efficient working model will effectively lessen the burden of paperwork, while at the same time reducing the chances of human error during writing. The medical professionals can focus more on their work, not only improving the quality of treatment but also giving the pa-tients substantially more medical care. Efficient property management can reduce unnecessary expendituresHelp maintain the quality of medical equipmentHospitals strive to provide safe medical equipment in order to ensure that all hospital property is fully utilized. The management of the medical property is not only related to medical safety, but it is also a safeguard to each patient’s health. Furthermore, effectively managing hospital resources can save costs and maintain the quality of hospital equipment.Therefore, the primary goal for renovation is to solve the issues of medical equipment mishan-dling of medical supply, unclear labeling, and the lack of a complete storage management plan. TSC has found an easy way to solve these problems. Efficient property management can reduce unnecessary expendituresHelp maintain the quality of medical equipmentIn order to effectively improve pharmaceutical and medical equipment manufacturer’s manage-ment of resources, many manufacturers have implemented a Unique Device Identification (UDI) system. Many medical institutions are using a "warehouse management concept" to ensure effi-cient use of resources. Using a scanner and TSC's barcode label printer, they are able to suc-cessfully resolve the issue of wasting medical supply and property. The method is simple. During procurement, a barcode is used that includes information on the item’s name, quantity, effective period, company and other pertinent information. The label can also record the information of where the purchased goods should be stored, reducing chances of misplacement or theft. All this information can be provided to the pharmaceutical and medical equipment manufacturer. Efficient property management can reduce unnecessary expendituresHelp maintain the quality of medical equipmentWhen the supplies arrive, one can use a scanner to confirm the relevant information, and all infor-mation will be sent to the central database for the management staff to obtain the flow of all supply. Access to the supply would require scanning the barcode to record the taker’s name, quantity and reason for usage into the computer. Management charts of how all the supply has been used can be made on a monthly or quarterly basis, making sure that all property equipment has been correctly utilized. The charts can also remind the management staff of property mainte-nance to ensure the quality of equipment. Most importantly, this canhelp put an end to medical equipment and property waste, reducing hospital’s expenditure. Accurately confirm patient's identity to avoid recognition errorsStrive for prescription infallibilityThe news often reports on how hospital staff accidentally give patients the wrong medication po-tentially resulting in great physical harm or even fatality. In order to prevent this from happening, many countries have implemented various types of medication administration processes, such as United States's “ Five Rights of Medication Administration”, China's “Three Read Seven Confir-mation” and Taiwan's “Three Reads, Five Confirmations.” These are the measures taken to ensure medical personnel go through the proper procedure to confirm that the medication, pa-tient, time, dosage and route of administration is correct. Accurately confirm patient's identity to avoid recognition errorsStrive for prescription infallibilityWhile major medical institutions face a significant number of patients every day, the number of nursing staff, however, has long been inadequate. The security measures is of "Five rights" or “three reads, five confirmations” are only preventative measures and rely on manual operation or human interpretation. The combination of using a scanner and TSC’s barcode label printer can solve the issue of an imbalanced medical staff to patient ratio. Accurately confirm patient's identity to avoid recognition errorsStrive for prescription infallibilityOnce a doctor has completed the diagnosis, all data will be instantly sent to the central database and to the pharmacy instantly. Once the information is received, the pharmacist will be able to fill the prescription as well as confirm the content. Also, the name of the medication, dosage, fre-quency of use and other information, and the patient's personal information can all be printed on the medicine container by the TSC label printer. When the patient receives their medication they can confirm all the information on the container again to eliminate the possibility of receiving the wrong prescription. Accurately confirm patient's identity to avoid recognition errorsStrive for prescription infallibilityIn addition, when the medical staff prescribes medicine, they can use the scanner to reconfirm the medicine-related information and patient details to avoid mistakes. Also, the pharmacist’s name can be printed on the medicine container for traceability if a mistake was made. Speed up examination by simplifying operation processEffectively improve the efficiency of physician visitsLarge medical institutions serve thousands of patients a day, many of which emergency treat-ment and day-to-day outpatients often require further examinations to diagnosis the patient's physical condition, such as internal organ inflammation, bone fracture, abnormal blood condition and much more. Large medical laboratories also process a high number of specimens on a daily basis.In the past, everything from the patient's medical records needed to be written down manually. Not only is the operation slow and time consuming but it is also prone to errors caused by illegible writing or is interpretations. In particular, the number of samples to be processed by the laborato-ry is huge. To ensure the accuracy of all specimens samples, and to transfer the examination data back to the emergency department and outpatient department in time, TSC has provided a solution to help speed up each physician visit.
