Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. 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 Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) 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.
In the age of evolving shopper expectations and technology advancements, the global retail industry is in the midst of a profound shift in retail operations. To gain a deeper understanding of retailers’ focus, concerns and investment plans, Zebra conducted a global research study across a wide spectrum of retail segments, including: specialty stores, department stores, apparel merchants, supermarkets, electronics, home improvement and drugstore chains. The results of this study are shared in this 2017 Retail Vision Study.
Founded in 1898, the department store chain The Bon-Ton Stores has a long history of innovation. One of the largest regional department store operators in the United States, the retailer is constantly implementing new strategies and technologies to improve customer service in all of its sales channels – beginning with enhancing the customer’s experience on the sales floor.
Digital technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s modern healthcare systems. While 95% of hospitals in the United States have implemented Electronic Health Records or EHR, much work remains.1 Patient identification errors continue to plague hospitals and are the precipitating factor for 13% of surgical mistakes and 67% of transfusion mix-ups.2 Nationally, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure 1.3 million people annually.3 The cost of lost lives, reduced productivity and malpractice insurance fees are debilitating the healthcare industry.
At the center of every hospital’s safety program is the patient wristband, which provides caregivers access to the information they need at every point of care during the patient stay. However, not
all wristbands are of equal quality. Some wristbands are not durable enough to withstand the rigors
of a busy hospital environment, leading to workarounds and mistakes that, in the end, comprise patient care.

Hotels and the travelers who frequent them bear little resemblance to their counterparts from just a few years ago. The explosion of new technologies has allowed hotels to change the way they operate and has made the average traveler more techsavvy and connected than ever.
Mobile devices are driving this innovation. Not only have mobile devices changed how people interact with each other, they also have changed how people expect businesses to engage with them. According to SmartBrief, 40 percent of hotel guests carry three or more mobile devices. And with global mobile data traffic growing 30 percent every year according to Cisco, there will be an estimated 4.9 billion mobile users by 2018. When these mobile users travel, will they choose your hotel? Only if you have the mobile amenities they demand.
In this white paper, we will review three mobile trends that every hotelier should address, and we’ll offer recommendations on how to best address them.
The restaurant and bar industry is highly competitive, and many owners of these establishments struggle every day just to stay in business. In fact, approximately 40 restaurants and bars go out of business each day in the U.S. According to celebrity chef, restaurateur, and entrepreneur Robert Irvine, “Part of the problem is that they don’t have the systems and processes in place to track the key aspects of their business – not only their costs and their revenue, but what items sell the best (and by how much), what items are most profitable, who are the most productive employees, and so on.”
The use of technology tools and the Internet – driven by a high-speed network connection that supports owners, staff and guests – can be the key to evolving a restaurant or bar from a struggling survivor to a thriving, successful business. Download this white paper to learn more.
