The primary aim of Positive Patient Identification (PPID) is to ensure that a patient is identified correctly and receives the right medical treatment. PPID is a key component of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards – a framework designed “to protect the public from harm and to improve the quality of health service provision” in Australia.*
As a leader in healthcare solutions, Health ID provides the Australian healthcare sector with a wide range of quality Positive Patient Identification (PPID) solutions. Our custom PPID solutions are designed to reduce risk and improve patient safety in Australian hospitals, surgical clinics and treatment centres. We work with many of the nation’s leading healthcare providers, including Queensland Health and NSW Health.
* The NSQHS Standards are administered by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC)
