Barcode technology reduces risk and improves patient safety and satisfaction. Phlebotomists are required to positively ID a patient by their coded wristband, as well as confirm a secondary ID method, in order to complete the process.
Reduce patient lengths of stay, as well as improve physician satisfaction. Required collection time and collecter ID are electronically documented. This helps close the loop on each collection event and ensures accurate and quick documentation.
Improve workflows through the use of automated stat paging with a handheld or mobile device, and eliminate manual processes. The use of bedside label printers also helps phlebotomists improve their workflow processes by eliminating the need to print batch labels, a major source of mislabeled specimens.
We previously had one or two labeling errors per month. Since going live with MobiLab, there have been zero.
We had to ensure a seamless transition and that the system we selected would maintain the culture of patient safety and quality that users were accustomed to. MobiLab made that possible.
Since we went live with MobiLab, we haven't had a single mislabeled specimen.
Stat alerts appear immediately in MobiLab, so staff members know about orders right away and aren't wasting time on the phone. We're communicating less, but we're communicating more effectively now.
