Information Systems, Data Management, Bar-Code, Specimen Collection

Definition : Bar-code enabled data management information systems designed to build safeguards in clinical laboratory specimen collection at the point of care by verifying patient and healthcare professional identification and that the appropriate specimen container is used; they also print the correct specimen label. These information systems include a computerized device (e.g., a portable or handheld computer) with bar-coded label reading and printing capabilities; the device can also interact with other (e.g., hospital, laboratory, provider order entry) information systems in the healthcare facility. Typically the bar-coded label on the patient's identification wristband and the one on the specimen container are scanned; then the bar-coded specimen collection system confirms that the collected specimens match provider orders (i.e., that it is the right patient, right health-care professional, right specimen container, right order of draw, and right time). Specimen collection bar-coded systems are intended to improve accuracy and safety of specimen collection for laboratory tests by minimizing errors.
