It's no secret that the world of healthcare has its fair share of unique identification and security challenges.
However, there are also aspects of a healthcare ID program that move beyond mere questions and are instead essentials, namely a good ID card and a good way to carry and display that card.
In many parts of the country, patient-facing healthcare workers are required by law to wear an ID badge with their name and photo.
These policies exist for a number of reasons. ID badges foster a more friendly environment in the facility by allowing patients to know the name of the person who is providing care. They also bolster security by positively identifying authorized personnel, helping decrease the likelihood of impostors.
The fact that ID badges are a requirement means that, by relation, having a way to wear those ID badges becomes a de facto requirement as well.
With so many card-carrying options out there, is one option really that much better than another?
