San Fernando, CA (October 11,  2005) – Ramona Douglass, Senior Manager Bar Code Solutions at Precision  Dynamics Corporation (PDC), a global leader in automatic wristband  identification, will present “Positive Patient Identification: Automating the  Process from Bar Coding to RFID” at the Consorta Resource Management Conference,  October 11 in Chicago, Illinois.
 
Douglass’ presentation will  discuss current hospital bar code practices and the problems that occur in  daily use. The advantages and challenges  of various bar code symbologies will be distinguished, as well as which  symbologies are best suited for use with patient wristbands. The presentation will emphasize the advantage  of linking patient wristbands to bar coding protocols at point-of-care and how  this relates to medication administration, specimen collection and transfusion  verification.
