With hundreds of patients, doctors, surgeons, staff and visitors milling the halls of hospitals every day, security and identification can quickly become a concern. Hospital ID cards - whether they're for staff, patients, or visitors (or a combination thereof) can help staff organize and secure a large number of people in a busy environment.
ID cards at hospitals can be used in a variety of ways, and multipurpose ID cards with several features can be a boon for hospital efficiency.
Possible uses for hospital ID badges include:
- Identification - photo ID cards for doctors, staff, and long term patients can help distinguish who's who in the hospital. Having visible ID cards can help make operations more efficient as well as help security staff filter out unauthorized visitors easily, especially with visible temporary visitor badges.
- Access control - access control technology can help secure a hospital by limiting access only to certified cardholders at certain times. For example, operating rooms could be limited to specific surgeons and staff at scheduled operating times. Access control policies could control everything from wings and wards to individual patient rooms.
- Efficient record-keeping - many hospitals are beginning to assign ID cards and tracking materials to patients to make treatment and hospital stays more efficient and easy for everyone involved. A dynamic patient tracking system (with RFID cards or other smart technology can make check in, check out, treatment, and visiting times accurate and easy for all parties involved
- Payment cards - Hospital cards with an integrated payment system can make staff purchases at cafeterias and gift shops easy.
- Time and attendance
