Benefits of Custom Medical Labels for the Healthcare Industry

Organization is perhaps the most vital element of professionalism in the healthcare industry. There are several ways well-crafted labels can benefit your medical facility:

  • Maintain organization: Customized labels allow you to set the size, shape, color and dimensions for a label to integrate with your system. This customization can help you run your medical facility or laboratory confidently and easily.
  • Display patient information: Facilities can protect patient privacy according to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) rules with custom labeling. You can use numbered barcodes to impart details to healthcare workers while keeping the patient's information confidential.
  • Detail drug information: An easy-to-scan medical label designed for reading and displaying dosage information and risk factors can help prevent medication accidents. The easier it is to interpret a label, the more likely patients will understand it.
  • Enhance safety: Labels with careful color coding, barcodes and other information help lower the odds of mishandling when passing through laboratories and doctor's offices.
  • Build your reputation: A label with a professional appearance, readable text and well-displayed warnings can build your reputation with patients and other local healthcare facilities. Professionalism is key in the medical industry, and you can control your branding message with a labeling system unique to you.

Best Labels for Healthcare Use

There are three main types of labels that are highly efficient for healthcare use:

  • LIS/PIS system labels: Laboratory information system (LIS) labels record, manage and store patient data for workflow management in clinical laboratory settings. A pharmacy information system (PIS) label performs the same task for this medical setting. Custom LIS/PIS labels allow you to bring organization and data privacy to your laboratory.
  • Pressure-sensitive labels: Like a sticker, a pressure-sensitive label is an adhesive that workers can apply and remove with moderate pressure without heat or solvents. This label is effective for specimens that need sealing in a doctor's office or laboratory.
  • Alcohol and chemical resistant: Alcohol and chemical resistant labels are an ideal solution for medical research labels to resist exposure to solvents that would dissolve a normal label.
