The webinar, co-sponsored by Zebra and Cynergy, will explore how innovations in mobile, barcode and real-time technologies are providing immediate access to information that is empowering doctors, nurses and technicians to eliminate manual processes and ensure optimal patient care, beyond the fulfillment of the EHR.

The webinar will be held on February 26, 2013, and registration is available at www.educational-content.com/Patient_Experience_And_Safety/. Topics will include:

  • Why Patient Experience Management (PEM) is a critical metric
  • The expanding role of real-time information for providers and patients
  • How healthcare providers use technology to better track people, assets and data
  • How to optimize hospital workflows from the pharmacy to the bedside
  • How barcodes and other solutions improve patient experience and safety   

Approximately 160,900 adverse events occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of patient identification errors. Innovations in technology, such as barcoded labels and wristbands and mobile printing, help prevent these types of errors, driving patient safety and satisfaction.

"All healthcare organizations strive to provide quality, safe patient care while complying with regulations and increasing workflow efficiencies. Unfortunately, patient ID and labeling errors still plague healthcare facilities," said Andy Tippet , Healthcare Practice Leader at Zebra. "Barcode technology forms the foundation for clear identification of patients, medications and specimens by providing accurate real-time data to help prevent serious medical errors."
