Right Patient, Right Blood

3 Aug 2009

Right Patient, Right Blood

Mayday ran a Right Patient, Right Blood trial, the purpose being to provide equipment to help ensure that patients are tracked through the process of blood transfusion and that the right patient is given the right blood. The tracking process uses patient wristbands to hold patient information in Human Readable form, in 1D (linear) and 2D barcodes, as well as containing High Frequency programmable RFID tags. At any point of treatment, the patient?s wristband will be scanned to confirm their identity. Existing wristband printers would be replaced with new printers which are capable of printing the wristbands to a high quality and at the same time writing information to the RFID chip on the wristband. The wristband specifications are all as agreed by NHS Connecting for Health (a requirement primarily driven by the National Patient Safety Agency) and there was also a requirement that the information stored within the RFID tag should confirm to GDTI-113, a standard defined by GS1 UK.

CMC were instrumental in the implementation of an application running within the network-connected Zebra R2844-Z printer. On the route to delivering this we were able to understand the full requirement in great detail, to see the big picture of the technical challenges, to work with the client as well as partners and suppliers of the client, to ultimately ensure that a workable solution was provided in good time. This involved us in providing valuable consultancy, technical and troubleshooting services alongside the application development itself.
