How Can RFID Wristbands Help in Healthcare and Hospitality?

Wristbands can be tremendously helpful in the healthcare and hospitality industries. Whether they are the thermal or laser printer variety or are equipped with RFID technology, they can be a real game changer in these environments.

Accurately identifying patients at every moment during a hospital stay is essential, and the wristband print solutions from Zebra allow for instant access to patient information throughout the hospital and at their bedside.

Although information access is generally not quite as pressing in the hospitality industry, there is no denying that it’s incredibly useful. Thermal barcoded wristbands that can be printed on demand for hotels, attractions and amusement parks allow for cashless point of sale while reducing ticket fraud and boosting transaction speeds. This can greatly improve the experience of guests.

Zebra’s Wristband Offerings

Zebra offers self-laminating LaserBand wristbands that can be printed using existing laser printers. A self-laminating seal protects the band from moisture and can even stand up to the chemicals in hand sanitizer, extending its useful life. In addition, the wristband can be printed on the same sheet as patient chart labels to make admissions a snap.

Meanwhile, the direct print Z-Band wristbands from Zebra can be secured on the guest or patient instantly because no assembly is needed. The thermal printers used are known for their reliability, keeping IT service calls to a minimum, and they’ve got a small footprint that enables them to fit into even the most crowded desks.

In addition, Zebra offers custom RFID wristbands with adhesive and clip closure. These can be custom-printed using the design or logo of your organization. Their lineup also includes soft infant wristband companion items and alert labels that can be used alongside their thermal and laser wristbands. For quick identification and tracking in emergency scenes, their Statband wristband can be a real life-saver.
