Major hospital in Slovenia automates labeling with TSC's TDP-247 printer
Labeling of medical products, patient documents and lab test results
UKC Maribor (University Medical Centre), a 1,266-bed hospital in Maribor, Slovenia, treats approximately 60,000 patients annually, performing health care services for residents in the wider region of Maribor, Pesnica, Ruše, Ormož, Lenart, Ptuj and Slovenska Bistrica. To improve its around-the-clock patient services and respond more quickly to emergencies, the hospital decided to search for a high-performance, compact barcode labeling system that would help it quickly and accurately track medical supplies, lab results, and patient documentation, while reducing clerical errors and protecting the security of sensitive health care data.

The compact printers fit easily into cramped work spaces and ensure the precise marking of medical products, medications and patient specimens, improving tracking accuracy and reducing labeling errors. Patient information is now updated quickly and easily, expediting the daily work flow and improving staff productivity.
