Zebra Technologies Corporation is proud to exhibit at HIMSS15. This year’s event takes place Sunday, April 12 through Thursday, April 16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

At HIMSS15, Zebra will debut a series of solution sets that will deliver visibility to enhance patient care, improve operations, increase staff productivity, and optimize IT. 

In the past, both Zebra and Motorola Solutions Enterprise business provided a different piece of the puzzle to the same solution. Take Mobile Specimen Collection, for example.  In US hospitals, there are 150,000 adverse events on an annual basis due to the mislabeling of patient specimens. 

By bringing the identification of the patients, their specimens and the clinician to the patient bedside, healthcare providers can drastically reduce the misidentification of patient specimens.  Yet this opportunity only exists if there is a mobile printer on hand to immediately label the sample after it is drawn.  Additionally, this solution only works if a mobile computing device, with scanning capability is on hand to scan the patient wristband, the vial label after the draw is taken, and the clinician ID badge. 

Zebra is unique in having both sides of the solution in the form of mobile printing, as well as mobile computing and scanning.  Additionally we have label supplies, device management software, and supporting services to deliver a complete offering.  This is not just the case in mobile specimen collection but in all Zebra solutions that we will show at the HIMSS event.
