DYMO Launches Patient Identification Wristband Solution
ATLANTA, Feb. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — DYMO has introduced the DYMO Patient Identification Wristband Solution that allows healthcare professionals to create on-demand patient wristbands and labels from the industry-exclusive dual-roll printer, the LabelWriter® 450 Twin Turbo.
The new DYMO solution combines DYMO Patient Identification Wristbands, DYMO labels and the LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo printer to deliver versatile, efficient and cost effective print-on-demand capability. The DYMO solution eliminates waste by printing the exact quantity and combination of wristbands and labels desired for each patient. Most admissions, discharge and transfer workflows require dedicated printers for wristband and label printing, however, the DYMO LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo acts as two printers in one. The small footprint and dual-purpose versatility of the LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo make it an ideal choice for medical practices, small hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers.
“On-demand labeling solutions can improve patient safety by promoting positive patient identification at each critical step within the patient workflow,” said Curtis Campbell, Senior Brand Manager, DYMO Labeling. “Our LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo’s dual-roll print capability brings affordable and versatile on-demand print capability to medical facilities of any size.”
The smooth, flexible DYMO Patient Identification Wristbands are comfortable, durable and easy to apply. The wristbands feature an antimicrobial lining that helps prevent infections, as well as a UV coating that prevents fading and resists oils, alcohol and water to help maintain print legibility.
The new DYMO Patient Identification Wristband Solution features a robust Software Development Kit that makes it easy for IT professionals to enable integration with existing healthcare software. For facilities that do not have in-house software systems, the solution also works standalone, using dedicated wristband templates available with DYMO Label Software. “Small facilities deserve the same innovation and value in healthcare technology as large ones, and we’ve designed the DYMO Patient Identification Wristband Solution to work effectively and affordably in practically any medical setting,” said Campbell.
