Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.

The basic promise of blockchain is that it works as a global distributed ledger or database of things we value - everything from money, to creative work and votes - so these can then be managed and transacted in a trusted and secure manner. Yes, blockchain is a young technology, but well past its infancy. Today, the somewhat inflated expectations around the technology have been brought to a more realistic level and we are beginning to see practical applications across the enterprise. Although these are typically in the realm of reducing cost and/or time for transactions, improving product and system security, finding and preventing fraud and counterfeiting and increasing transparency, there are also instances of businesses relying on blockchain to create new revenue streams.
