With the cost of manufacturing in China escalating, companies are increasingly looking to Southeast Asia for an alternative to meet their outsource manufacturing needs. Emerging as the leading alternative to China, Vietnam is now a destination choice for outsource manufacturing due to the unique financial advantages it can provide companies, including those in high-tech segments such as medical and commercial aerospace. In addition to lowering total costs, Vietnam offers companies a larger labor force, strong IP protection, and reliable quality in the manufacturing process, among other benefits. Moving their contract manufacturing to Vietnam can provide companies an excellent foundation for long-term profits and sustained growth.

Up to 14% of medical records include inaccurate, potentially dangerous patient data as a direct result of failures in patient identification. Often, errors can be attributed to outdated manual processes, such as oral verification or written wristbands, which can impact the standard of care delivered.
In this white paper Zebra Technologies outlines the benefits of an automated barcode wristband solution, including insight into:
Reducing common Patient ID errors
The advantages of automated Patient ID processes over manual
The best automated barcoding options

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly transformed the digital landscape and the world we live in. Intelligent devices and sensors connect smart cars, robotic manufacturing equipment, smart medical equipment, smart cities, industrial control systems, and much more in a way that improves lives and saves businesses billions of dollars. But along with its benefits, rapid IoT growth introduces a new dimension of security vulnerabilities that dramatically escalates the nature and seriousness of cybercrime risks.
In addition to traditional confidentiality cyber risks, IoT threats include attacks that can:
• Render smart appliances useless
• Shut down city power grids
• Threaten lives through hacked pacemakers and other medical devices.
Such security flaws not only endanger lives, frustrate customers, and disrupt business operations, but they create significant cost and public relations damage for IoT developers and manufacturers.
