EVERETT, Wash., Feb 22, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
today announced the PC23d — an intuitive,
flexible and smart desktop printer designed to set a new standard for
user-friendly, efficient printing operations in healthcare environments.
With a compact and purpose-built design, the two-inch PC23d direct
thermal printer is ideal for hospital settings and an affordable choice
for healthcare organizations performing wristband and labeling
applications including patient tracking, sample and bedside labeling as
well as pharmacy and medical records.
“As the healthcare industry continues to face mounting pressure to
improve efficiency and accuracy, the PC23d fits perfectly into
Intermec’s broad portfolio of healthcare industry solutions, including
the recently announced SG20 handheld barcode scanner, designed
specifically to address these needs,” said Chuck Dourlet, Intermec Vice
President of Printers Media. “In collaboration with our partners and
customers, we have tailored our proven industrial printing capabilities
into a desktop printer design optimized for healthcare.”
Ideal for healthcare customers new to barcode printing or who are making
the switch from laser or inkjet, the PC23d is designed for quick set-up
and trouble-free use. The PC23d is equipped with either a universal Icon
interface or color LCD in 10 languages for immediate notifications —
ultimately reducing training and support needs without relying on IT.
With the fastest print speed in its class at eight inches per second,
simple one-handed media loading and the ability to configure on the spot
with a USB flash drive — no computer required — the PC23d is ideal for
the fast-paced healthcare environment. It’s also optimized with a
disinfectant resistant case, built to resist chemicals and cleaners.
Additionally, Intermec’s INband wristband media offers a tested and
proven wristband solution with the ability to withstand repeated
exposure to moisture, water and sanitizers.
The PC23d keeps IT administrators informed and productive with remote
status update tools to minimize downtime. It also offers off-the-shelf
compatibility and certifications with a wide range of healthcare
software applications to enable users to be up and running quickly, with
minimal IT support. Additionally, each printer comes with its own
webpage for easy remote device management via the Internet.
The PC23d takes a modular approach to connectivity, so it will easily
fit into existing network environments. USB comes standard along with
optional user installable serial, parallel, secure Ethernet and dual
wireless card with Bluetooth and CCX-compliant 802.11 b/g/n. The PC23d
is also available with HF RFID for tracking high-risk patients and
“The new PC23d will offer our customers a reliable patient ID solution
that makes wristband printing easier and more cost-effective than laser
solutions,” said Kathy Lawson, President of SKT Integration, Inc. “The
small footprint of the PC23d, coupled with its reliability and ease of
use, makes it a great fit for healthcare providers.”
“Intermec’s new PC23d wristband and label printer for health care is
empowering to both the user and the health care organization (HCO),”
said Drew Nathanson, Vice President of AutoID at VDC Research Group.
“Its feature set and capabilities not only enhances usability for the
multi-tasking, ever-busy health care worker, but it also enables the HCO
to adapt and future proof.”
