Ensuring Patients are Positively Identified throughout their treatment journey
PPID360 is the latest generation in systems providing Positive Patient Identification in Healthcare Organisations. At the very heart of every Organisation providing Healthcare to the public is the ability to know who you are treating and feel confident that a mistake has not
This is where PPID360 comes in. PPID360 ensures the Patient is Positively Identified as soon as they enter the Healthcare establishment and continues to be positively identified as they travel through their Healthcare journey until they are discharged. PPID360 is an easy to use web based system which integrates seamlessly into the many different and sometimes complex Healthcare systems containing Patient information.
What is PPID360?
PPID360 is a web based system allowing members of staff to simply query complex Patient Administration/ Management Systems (PAS/ PMS) and print a unique identifier for the Patient. This unique identifier could be a traditional Patient Wristband, Theatre Patient Label or a novel RFID bracelet.
But doesn’t my Patient Administration System do that?
Yes and No; but it is not as intelligent as PPID360. The PAS simply prints Wristbands on demand whereas PPID360 knows how many Wristbands have been printed, by whom and why. PPID360 is also accessible due to the fact it is Web Based and very simple to use. The PAS and PMS are the exact opposite due to the fact they are often run as a Terminal or Installed program on a PC. They are also complex as they offer far more functionality than PPID360 which means they take longer to train staff on a very common task. By using PPID360 the Hospital can extend the printing of Wristbands to other members of staff who would not normally have access to the PAS. In effect PPID360 hides the complex and functionally rich PAS system behind a simple to use interface that can be used anywhere from PC’s to Apple iPad Tablets.
Does PPID360 replace PAS?
No; PPID360 perfectly complements a PAS by working in harmony with it. The PAS does a very important job within the Hospital. It is the “Oracle” of all the information held about that Patient. PPID360 integrates seamlessly with the PAS and provides a “final mile” solution for printing Wristbands and Patient identifiers into every area within the Hospital or Clinic. Because it queries the PAS in real-time it means PPID360 has the most up to date information about the Patient we are going to identify.
Do I need to buy new printers?
No, we can use your current Wristband printers. Although we recommend Zebra HC100 Wristband “Toaster” printers due to their increased functionality we can work with other suppliers such as SATO and LaserBand.
Is it easy to change the Wristband design?
Yes, Each of the Wristband designs is stored in the Database with placeholders for the Patient data. If a new design is required PPID360 can simply be updated with the new design. To change a Wristband design is does not require a new install of the software. The Hospital can also choose an option in their support contract to include changes to the design.
Is it Mobile?
Yes, PPID360 has a mobile client that can be used on Windows, Apple and Google Android PDA’s. This is particularly useful for remote clinics and mobile locations such as ambulances and helicopters. There is also a Theatre / Operating Room mobile application that allows the Operating Team to quickly scan the sometimes hidden Wristband and reprint to a special sticker for placement on the Patients forehead.
