3 Ways Badge Buddies Can Enhance Your Healthcare ID Program

Posted by Dan Ryan on Jul 22, 2016 3:00:00 PM

Modern healthcare facilities are busy places. 

Each facility has dozens of different staff members, from doctors and nurses to technicians and maintenance staff, on-site at any given time. 

It's no surprise, of course, that healthcare is one of the most heavily regulated industries when it comes to identification programs and visitor policies.

With that in mind, a post on how a hospital or clinic needs good ID cards would be preaching to the choir: if you're a healthcare facility with no identification program, chances are the government has already come calling for you.

Instead, we wanted to point out ways to make your ID program better: by using Badge Buddies!

Those in the healthcare industry are probably at least somewhat familiar with Badge Buddies, even if they aren't known by name. 

"Those things with the letters that go behind our ID badges," you say.

Yup! Those are them. And while Badge Buddies are perfect for simple, effective role recognition, they can also be used to do so much more.

How can Badge Buddies make your healthcare ID program better?

Badge Buddies are a great way to add role recognition to a healthcare facility.

They provide clear, visual identification for patients and guests, letting them know the job function of the person to whom they are speaking.

However, some facilities have rules and regulations in place stating that an employee badge must be facing front at all times — no exceptions!

In a busy healthcare environment, it's inevitable that a badge will end up getting spun around a time or two. To satisfy the front-facing ID requirement, many organizations will simply print dual-sided ID cards. That way, if a badge gets turned around, the pertinent ID information is still showing.

Unfortunately, our standard Badge Buddies don't play well with that solution: they're opaque, meaning they'd block the ID badge.

Fortunately, we created a solution: clear Badge Buddies!

Lanyards are a great way to carry and display an ID badge or card. But did you know they can also be used for role-recognition, with no customization required?

Thanks to our pre-printed role-recognition lanyards, you can order pre-printed lanyards with different titles, offering a convenient way to tell personnel apart at facilities of all kinds.

When most people think of lanyards, they think of custom lanyards: colorful, eye-catching designs that are meant to promote a brand or show company pride.

However, the space on a lanyard can be used for things other than brand enhancement: it can be used to identify personnel!

We offer six different pre-printed lanyard options, perfect for identifying all of the personnel at your site or event without having to spend the money on six different kinds of custom lanyard.
