Time-saving wristband technology

Our wristband ID printers are made for everyday healthcare tasks.

Quick, simple and effective printing saves staff time, allowing more face-to-face patient care while high-quality printing enhances legibility and reduces the chances of errors. Advanced connectivity options like Bluetooth, Network LAN and Wi-Fi, and compatibility with wristband media from all major providers, gives staff the freedom to move around from ward to ward, bedside to bedside.

Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust installed Brother’s wristband printing technology into their day to day routine. The ease of use meant they were able to pick up and start using the technology immediately. It gave their carers more time to spend with their patients as they didn’t need to swap between different sized wristband cartridges for adults and children. Vicki Cooper, Head of Digital Transformation at Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust said, “We’ve cut costs, freed up a significant amount of staff time and improved the quality of printing across the board on wristbands.”

These versatile portable thermal print solutions integrate fully with your existing Patient Administration Systems, and with ZPL emulation and other print language support, you can work in the way that suits you best.

Our specialist thermal printing solutions give you reliability and consistency so you can deliver high-quality care time after time.

The exceptional print quality delivers excellent legibility for labels on vital items such as blood bags, patient records and sample pots. Easily print multiple barcode types while ensuring GS1 compliance, and use our highly durable labels as part of UDI compliance.

Staff can enter and retrieve information at the point of care, meaning more of their time is spent by the patient’s side. Portability allows staff to move between wards and work at the bedside just as effectively as they would with desktop equipment.

The range is scalable, with accessories including cutters and external roll holders, and it integrates seamlessly with solutions like Datalogic barcode readers. Each printer is made with robust materials, ready for life in a busy healthcare environment, and backed up with three-year warranties as standard. You can also cut supplies costs thanks to thermal print technology that works without inks or toners.

Meeting the complex print needs of a multi-site healthcare trust

Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust have around 3,500 staff across four sites and operate a range of acute services. Each site relied heavily on printed documents for record-keeping and communication, meaning their carers spent valuable time on admin rather than with their patients. Find out how Brother saved Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust £200,000 and increased printer up time to 99.9%.

The easy route to enhanced digitisation

Brother’s dedicated scanning solutions make day-to-day paperwork and digitisation seamless – all for as little as half the cost of other leading brands.

Our versatile range allows staff to scan documents by their patient’s bedside. This leads to fewer interruptions to care, fewer errors and less lost paperwork.

Integrated barcode recognition (using additional software such as Barcode Utility) enables the routing of documents to pre-designated locations. Data sharing becomes more efficient with scanned documents sent to the correct, pre-determined, secure location. This digitisation process makes sharing data such as patient records or test results in and between departments easier and quicker.

To ensure the process is seamless, scanned documents are enhanced using a range of imaging processing features such as automatic skew correction, blank page skipping, and the ability to make text searchable. Multi-feed detection allows the scanning of different media in the same batch. High-capacity automatic document feeders mean staff spend less time manually organising patient records and more time with patients themselves.

And thanks to end-to-end security features like secure function lock and NFC for user authentication, confidential information is protected at all times.

Truly portable. Truly patient-centric.

Face-to-face patient care is a vital part of healthcare provision, but this can often be interrupted when staff have to print using fixed desktop technology. Offering complete portability, Brother’s wristband and label print solutions improve efficiency and reduce errors by letting staff enter and retrieve information at the point of care. Staff can move between wards and work at the bedside just as effectively as they would with desktop equipment, giving patients more face-to-face time. You can also cut supplies costs thanks to thermal print technology that works without inks or toners.
