IBSA Partners With SATO To offer HealthCARE ID Solutions
Indianapolis-based International Business Solutions Alliance (IBSA) has signed an agreement with SATO Corporation—a provider of barcode printing, labeling, and EPC/RFID solutions—to offer a more secure method of administering patient care and improving patient safety. SATO’s Positive Patient ID solution offers health-care providers a path to compliance using the latest in cost-effective patient identification technology, including SATO DuraMark thermal wristbands, code colorized fastening clips, CTMD thermal printers and Label Gallery HC application software.
SATO’s Positive Patient ID solution will advance an organization’s method of banding, tracking, and administering medications to patients. SATO’s Positive Patient ID wristbands work seamlessly with existing bedside bar code systems, and help ensure the proper patient receives safe, accurate and timely medical procedures. The DuraMark Wristband facilitates positive identification by linking each patient’s medical record number or account number using human-readable text, barcodes and, if desired, a patient’s photo.
Not only does SATO’s HealthCARE ID solution enable the facility to print the right wristband for the right patient at the right time, without intervention from the nursing or administrative staff, but it also meets or exceeds the demanding requirements of the FDA, AHA, HIPAA, and provides compliance with JCAHO guidelines for patient identification and safety. In addition, Label Gallery HC seamlessly interfaces to any hospital information system and allows the use of advanced identification technologies, while SATO CTMD printers are high-performance thermal printers that are operationally quiet, enabling them to be placed in the most sensitive of hospital environments.
IBSA currently holds contracts with Novation and First Choice Cooperative, providing a broad range of products supplied by a diverse supplier pool.
