Brother Announces Their TD-2120N is now Cerner Certified for Patient ID Production in the Healthcare Industry

Brother wristband and label printers are designed to ensure accurate patient identification and optimal patient safety – from hospital admission to all points of care


Sydney, Australia, 26 March 2015 - Brother International Australia, a premier provider of mobile and desktop thermal printing products, announces that they have received notification from Cerner’s Technology Certification Lab that their TD-2120N thermal printers running ZPL printer language emulation and firmware revision v1.03_r3 or abovehave been classified as Certified* devices for use by Cerner clients.

TheBrother TD2 series health care thermal printer with TrustSensesmart technology prints crisp and accurately imaged wristbands and labels at virtually any hospital point of care location – from the admissions desk and ER, to a rolling cart at the patient bedside, to the blood lab and surgical suite.

“The printer’s wireless, mobile format enables clinicians to accurately identify patients and administer care directly where it is needed, saving time and reducing the risk of disruptions that can potentially lead to manual and human errors,” said Kelly Wilson, Senior Marketing Manager for Brother International Australia.  

“With the ever-growing utilisation of health care services, it becomes even more critical that everything possible is done to accurately identify patients as required by the five rights ‒ the right patient, right drug, right dose, right route and right time,” Wilson continued. “We believe our patient ID printing solution helps to ensure that best healthcare practices are followed and that patient safety rights are protected.” 

Increased Workflow Efficiency

In addition to protecting patient safety, the Brother TD-2120N printer with TrustSense technology also offers speed and versatility, which helps to increase workflow efficiency and reduce downtime.  Unlike standard thermal printers, these versatile printers allow users to load and print both wristbands and labels without special set-up or calibration.

The TD-2120N printer has a compact footprint with built-in LAN interface and quickly prints accurate, high-resolution barcodes (300 dpi) and text. Optional Li-ion battery, WLAN, or Bluetooth interfaces and a touch panel display are also available for even more versatility.
