DYMO Introduces New Patient Identification Wristband and Label Solution

A new Patient Identification Wristband Solution from DYMO will make it possible for healthcare professionals to create on-demand wristbands and labels for patients by using the LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo, an exclusive dual-roll printer.

DYMO designed the solution to incorporate its Patient Identification Wristbands, DYMO labels and the LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo printer. Together, these provide healthcare professionals with a highly flexible, affordable and efficient print-on-demand functionality.

In a release, Curtis Campbell, Senior Brand Manager, DYMO Labeling, said, "On-demand labelling solutions can improve patient safety by promoting positive patient identification at each critical step within the patient workflow. Our LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo's dual-roll print capability brings affordable and versatile on-demand print capability to medical facilities of any size."

The DYMO solution cuts down waste as it enables the printing of the exact number and combination of wristbands and labels for a single patient. Allowing a dual functionality, the DYMO LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo has a small footprint which makes it especially ideal for use within medical practices and small hospitals, and across ambulatory surgery centers.

Patient Identification Wristbands created by the DYMO solution are said to be flexible and comfortable to use. Featuring an antimicrobial lining, these wristbands can help in arresting infections, while their UV coatings are useful in resisting the fading effects that liquids such as oils, alcohol and water can have over the print legibility of the wristbands.

Designed with a robust Software Development Kit, the DYMO solution enables IT professionals to easily integrate the solution into their existing healthcare software. A stand-alone version of the solution is also available featuring dedicated wristband templates from DYMO Label Software.

Curtis Campbell went on to say that "Small facilities deserve the same innovation and value in healthcare technology as large ones, and we've designed the DYMO Patient Identification Wristband Solution to work effectively and affordably in practically any medical setting.”
