Summary

This software is currently in a clinical trial at both the RPA Hospital in Brisbane and also the Gold Coast Hospital. It is aimed at reducing the number of errors in the collection of blood samples. The project involves using a wireless barcode scanner to scan the information from a new patient’s armbands. From there the clinician is able to print specimen labels at the patient’s bedside. The information from the specimen label is taken from the information contained in the barcode on the patient’s armband.

So far the trial is going well. The project has be mentioned in the Courier Mail and also the Queensland Health's magazine, Health Matters.
