CareChek™ will help you fulfill JCAHO initiatives and improve the safety of your patients.
The CareChek™ patient identification system uses bar code scanning to ensure positive patient ID at
the bedside. The IOM reported 98,000 patient deaths to medical error. A study in
2003 found that 1 in 165 blood samples is mis-labeled. Another study found mis-transfusion with 1 in
400 units of blood. Improving patient identification has been a JCAHO and CAP initiative for the past 2
The CareChek™ patient identification system can help you reduce these statistics. The system uses handheld
computer technology at the point-of-care to positively match the patient to a specimen, blood product, or medication.
The system is modular to give you the flexibility of implement any combination of modules.
Utilizing a standard HL7 interface enables the system to transmit and receive orders for specimen collection,
blood product administration and medication administration. Activities are completed at the point-of-care and
records of the activity are transmitted to an electronic medical record or printed. CareChek has the ability
to customize chart reports, error logs and clinical occurrence reports.
