Abstract

Patient safety should be a fundamental element in any hospital's philosophy, mission, and vision. Use of barcode point-of-care technology (BPOC) to reduce medication errors is a patient-safety approach that hospitals can implement within a short time frame and obtain immediate benefits. Advantages of BPOC are that it is intuitive, cost-effective, and conducive to improved patient satisfaction.
