Improving the quality and efficiency of patient care
Zebra’s visionary, end-to-end Positive Patient ID, Clinical Mobility and Healthcare Intelligence Solutions enhance patient safety, the productivity of your staff members, and the efficiency of your operations.
Enhance Patient Safety
From admissions to discharge, and throughout the patient journey, safety starts with positive patient identification. Zebra Identity Solutions enable accurate specimen collection and management, medication administration and patient identification, helping you improve patient safety and protect patient rights.
Find out more about each solution below:
- PATIENT IDENTIFICATION: Proper positive patient identification begins at admissions, and an accurate patient identification match is the cornerstone for all subsequent patient care processes and procedures. Zebra provides a comprehensive Positive Patient ID solution specifically designed for the unique needs of the healthcare admissions process.
- SPECIMEN COLLECTION: Misidentified samples create a serious risk to patient safety, potentially resulting in misdiagnosis and/or incorrect treatment. With Zebra’s mobile devices and printers, healthcare workers can print labels at the point of care and perform a three-point check: specimen order, patient wristband and labeled container. Your staff can be confident the right specimen is collected from the right patient at the right time and placed in the right container – so patients receive the right test results – and the right treatment.
- MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION: Without mobility, there are many steps in medication administration that are not only time consuming, but also present opportunities for error. Armed with a mobile computer with barcode scanning capability, nurses can scan the patient wristband, the medication and their own ID card in seconds, ensuring that the right patient receives the right medication, the right dose, by the right route, at the right time.
- PHARMACY MANAGEMENT: Zebra’s solutions help your pharmacy add variable data to every drug at the unit-dose level. These barcode labels are scanned to immediately verify and record medication dispensing, as well as check the NDC number against the prescription order to ensure the correct medication in the correct dosage is administered to the correct patient.
- LABORATORY MANAGEMENT: Hospitals and independent labs improve specimen identification accuracy and tracking efficiency with Zebra Laboratory Management Solutions. By barcoding all samples and aliquots either at the bedside or in the lab, the need for manual data entry is eliminated, saving time and reducing errors and costs.
Improve Staff Productivity
Zebra’s clinical mobility solutions bring instantaneous, collaborative care to a patient’s bedside. Our innovative, purposeful-designed mobile computing devices consolidate work tools, systems and processes together, allowing caregivers to spend their time where it matters most: with the patient.

- STAFF COLLABORATION IN HEALTHCARE: Enhancing communication and collaboration across your facility enables more time to focus on patient care. Through Zebra’s Healthcare Mobility solutions we are able to help you to simplify workflows, improve communications, and increase enterprise effectiveness. Integrated voice and data mobile device can save two to six hours per week, increasing staff efficiency and job satisfaction. With a direct link to patients, healthcare workers can address issues quickly, resulting in better care and satisfaction. With always-on WLAN connectivity, your staff is in constant communication and can collaborate more effectively and quickly.
Increase Operational Efficiency
Zebra’s visionary products, software and real-time location solutions not only make patient care smarter and more connected than ever, they also reduce waste and lower costs. Visibility into the location and health of patients, staff and each critical asset provides the difference between guessing and knowing, ensuring caregivers make intelligent decisions and act with confidence.

- HOSPITAL ASSET AND EQUIPMENT TRACKING: Zebra’s tracking system places sensing and locationing technologies on your critical patient care medical assets and devices: patient blood bags, IV pumps, heart monitors, patient tissue, beds, wheelchairs and anything that has high monetary value or critical patient care outcome dependencies. Our RFID readers located throughout the facility automatically note the location of the asset or device as it moves – providing real-time visibility into the whereabouts of each and every item.
- HOSPITAL STAFF TRACKING: The people are the most important asset in every healthcare organization. Yet, the complexities of the patient care process often can make their jobs challenging. With Zebra’s advanced locationing technologies, pattern recognition and workflow bottlenecks become visible and workflow efficiencies and patient care focus are optimized.
- PATIENT TRACKING: Now, more so than ever, a positive patient experience is important to deliver. Zebra solutions capture every step of the patient care journey and help caregivers ensure optimal care and safety is provided.
- HEALTHCARE SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT: Zebra’s technology enables you to achieve integrated supply chain solutions, all the way from the warehouse to the receiving department, to the par-level locations, and at the patient bedside.
- WLAN CONNECTIVITY & NETWORK ASSURANCE: In the mission-critical environment of healthcare, delivering the very best in patient care requires doctors, nurses and other caregivers to be instantly able to reach colleagues and access a wealth of data. With a Zebra wireless LAN solution, you can put instant mobile access to voice and data in the pockets of healthcare workers.
