Patient identification is the backbone of exceptional healthcare. After all, healthcare workers can only treat a patient properly if they know what he or she needs. For this reason, many hospitals and clinics are moving toward a robust PPID (positive patient identification) system. This system uses wristbands to digitally store patients’ medical files to effectively manage proper patient identification.

However, proper PPID requires much more than just patient wristbands. Hospitals also need several tools to ensure correct identification, adequate patient privacy, and exceptional care. Luckily, manufacturers like Zebra Technologies have created great products for just this purpose, so healthcare providers your clients can offer excellent care to their patients.

The PPID Wristband 

Patient wristbands have long been used as identification during a hospital visit. However, today’s PPID wristbands tell so much more than just a patient’s name. These thermal or laser wristbands are designed to be durable and scannable – no matter how much hand sanitizer they encounter. The design ensures that medical practitioners can identify the right patient throughout the continuum of care.

Additionally, Zebra Technologies’ PPID wristbands have the patient’s needs in mind. In addition to storing full medical records through the bracelets (which gives patients more privacy and more effective treatment), these wristbands are also designed to be extremely comfortable. This simple product can help make the healthcare experience better for everyone – the patients and the providers.
