Varlink, the York-based specialist distributor of mobile computing and associated barcode printing products is pleased to introduce the new HC100 wristband printer from Zebra Technologies.
The HC100 Patient I.D printing solution was developed to meet the unique needs of healthcare providers and makes wristband printing easier and more cost-effective than laser solutions. This solution combines the reliable HC100 direct thermal printer, as well as easy-to-load cartridges containing the industrys only antimicrobial-coated wristbands, the Zebras Z-Band wristbands.
Sabine Kelly, Varlink Marketing Manager commented we are pleased to add the HC100 printer to our portfolio. Zebra products can help a growing number of our VARs offer healthcare professionals solutions complying with a new legislation coming into force on July 18th standardising the use of patient wristbands. This legislation states that all NHS organisations in England and Wales will have to issue patient wristbands containing the patients name, date of birth, NHS unique number and first line of address. All this information can easily be easily incorporated into a 2D barcode printed on the patient wristband itself. The barcode can then be scanned at the point of care to help eliminate errors and mistakes.
Bill Gordon, Varlink Technology Director added compared to other wristband printing methods, the HC100 is easier to use. It comes with integrated media cartridges, which are easier and quicker to load, hence the time saving element is considerable. All these features make the HC100 a total solution for wristband printing. A growing number of our resellers have identified opportunities in the healthcare market and I am convinced that this new printer will be well received within our reseller community."
Varlink will be stocking the HC100 wristband printer from Monday 21st July, 2008.
