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.

In the early 2000s, two vastly different businesses—baseball and field service management—began to use advanced statistical analysis to gain an advantage over their competitors. They both revolutionized their respective fields by using statistical knowledge to improve performance. The new approach replaced old models and methods and attained shockingly good results as both set new standards for their respective industries.
In this white paper, you will learn the general concepts behind predictive analytics and how they can be applied to a field service organization. The paper will cover the basic metrics that should be tracked, the use of performance pattern profiles, and how these principles can predict future events.
Seemingly unrelated events can conspire to harm your business when you rely on far-flung networks of suppliers, vendors, and service providers. Read “The Butterfly Effect” to learn how global organizations can address the threat of third party disruption in today’s economy.
If you follow the advice outlined in this ebook, you’ll find that over time you’ll be able to cultivate a strong brand that your prospects and customers love and respond to. That, combined with a strong approach to lead generation, is a winning combination.

In this paper, Zebra shows how to accelerate the path to IoT through the Visible Value Chain (VVC). It enables organizations to gain real-time visibility into their operations allowing them to be more nimble, agile, and make better-informed business decisions. Once organizations have seamlessly enabled device connection to the data center, they can see events occurring throughout their value chain in real time—and act upon them. Doing so creates new value and intelligence from both legacy and new devices, while mining the vast riches of Big Data.
