Endur ID has always been on the forefront when it comes to Patient Identification Solutions.  The world we live in is largely automated and there is a big push toward automation in the healthcare industry in particular.  With healthcare, automation comes the push for wider adoption of Positive Patient Identification through Wristbands and bar code readers.  As the procedures facilities perform grows and government guidelines become more stringent, this initiative becomes ever more important. In order to make sure the “5 rights” are performed properly there needs to be a system in play to minimize the human factor which can contribute to mistakes.  The 5 rights are defined as the right diagnoses, right indicators, right time, right test(medical) and right patient. These are all indicators that can be listed on the patient wristband and scanned via the barcode printed on the bands in order to create accountability to improve patient care.
