Printer and Wristband Solution

The printer-wristband combination prints typical wristband identification data and color stripes or symbols to show risk alerts. The printer “reads” the patient’s data file to produce this information, which can reduce the risk of physically selecting an incorrect separate alert band. Eliminated is the need to stock separate supply items of colored wristbands, tags, snaps, etc.

Alert-a-Color uses Zink® Zero Ink technology to apply heat to dye crystals in the specialized wristband material to directly print the ID data and the color stripes. This wristband printing technology replaces ink cartridges, toner, and ribbons (and the waste of printing full sheets for a single wristband) used in other color printing applications.

Wristbands come in a roll that easily snaps into and out of the printer. They have a tamper evident adhesive closure and are suitable for wearing while bathing and withstand solvents used in healthcare settings.

PAL®: The AMT Datasouth Difference

The Alert-a-Color smart printer uses its embedded programming language ‘PAL®” to interpret the hospital system’s existing data stream to format the wristband to include identification data, barcodes, and color alert stripes (along with the name of the alert itself) in whatever format the hospital chooses. The PAL can be reprogrammed as needed to handle updates in formats, alert designations, etc.

A Unique Way to Print Wristbands

  • Lightweight with optional rechargeable lithium ion battery and can receive the data file via WiFi: empowering the mobile opportunity to use the solution on a cart or anywhere in the hospital
  • Printer and media designed specifically for wristband applications: eliminates waste of using a full sheet in laser printing
  • Two-part solution – printer and wristband media is all that is needed!
