How one medical center uses barcode label printers

Posted by Susan Fields

With a patient base in excess of 60,000, the Golden West Medical Center bariatric (weight loss) center has treated about one in every 15 residents of Tucson, Arizona. This busy facility opened its doors in 1984 and has grown to become the largest weight loss center in Arizona.  They have done this by delivering friendly and courteous service from a skilled team of healthcare professionals with over 83 years of combined experience. The center provides outpatient care for weight management, smoking cessation and other health needs, and prides itself on the use of safe, effective medications combined with expert guidance in proper dietary habits.

Challenges: To replace antiquated dot-matrix printers with networked high-resolution thermal transfer printers to generate prescription and appointment labels. 

Solutions: Printing barcoded labels from several networked IntelliBar M48 Net100 printers for diverse patient needs including medication bottles, patient ID and referral cards, and equipment management.  

Results: Increased levels of patient satisfaction with “high tech” barcoding scans, more referrals, and improved accuracy in dispensing medication, accounting, and patient records.
