Retailers face enormous pressure to gain ROI from their business processes. Achieve the most value with RFID technology by ensuring accuracy, while shrinking the reoccurring costs of label media. This document from Zebra Technologies discusses the benefits of item-level tagging, and how on-pitch printing and encoding solutions can boost RFID's value beyond the supply chain.
Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety
and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification ó including many of
the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because
of sample identification errors.1 There is a strong and growing body of evidence within
medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient
bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commissionís
National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) for 2010 advocate the use of two patient-specific
identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from
a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.
Producing specimen labels at the patient bedside and encoding patient identification in
a barcode satisfies both The Joint Commissionís NPSG and Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. T
The path to creating a secure application begins by rigorously testing source code for all vulnerabilities and ensuring that use of the application does not compromise or allow others to compromise data privacy and integrity.

Smart printers are a smart investment. They eliminate the need for computers dedicated to controlling them, can act as PLCs to run other devices on production lines, enable fool-proof and error-proof bar code printing, and provide investment protection with advanced features like XML printing and RFID label encoding.
