Webinar: Getting started with traceability in your in hospital/healthcare setting

The Basics

This webinar will provide an overview of the steps to getting started and guidance on what you can be doing now to implement traceability in the healthcare setting to make services safer for patients.  

Risks to patient safety occur when there is a mismatch between a patient and the care they receive. Errors can occur at time of diagnosis, treatment or on-going care.

Regulators are also requiring manufacturers to uniquely identify and label pharmaceuticals and medical devices which means there is an opportunity for hospitals to use the barcode to improve traceability and visibility of product throughout the hospital
