Beverly Hospital is a not-for-profit, leading and independent 224-bed acute care facility that is proud of the medical services and comfort provided to patients. From emergency room and hospitalization to outpatient procedures, Beverly Hospital offers a full range of services with the latest technology; including the pharmacy.
Beverly Hospital, like other small to midsize hospitals in the United States, processes about 2000 prescription orders per day. About 250 of those orders or prescriptions require instructional color labels such as “Look-alike Sound Alike”, “For Oral Use Only”, “Protect From Light”, and “Shake Well and Keep In Refrigerator”. Wayne Campbell, Director of Pharmacy of Beverly Hospital says, “we get these auxiliary labels from 4 different label manufacturers. Sometimes we’d get them in a timely fashion; sometimes we don’t. We don’t know who ordered what from whom or when it’s coming in. It’s very challenging”.
To improve this situation, Beverly Hospital deployed the ClariSafe Color Label Solution from Addmaster, https://www.addmaster.com/product/clarisafe/, with partners HP, and Neenah Paper. Addmaster has over 30 years of experience developing and manufacturing inkjet printers for the financial market with over 300,000 printers installed worldwide. John Clary, VP of Engineering at Addmaster, decided to develop an inkjet color printer with a small footprint and software that mimics pharmacy personnel ordering from a catalog to print the color labels they need when they need them.
“ClariSafe™ can print all of my labels on-demand, any time I need them. It prevents overstocking. It prevents us from running out of labels and enables us to make special labels that are not available on the market” says Wayne.

According to Alex Shafer, Director of Business Development for Addmaster, “The ClariSafe Color Label System costs $1,495 and includes both the printer and application to print durable color labels when needed. Plus we’ve added and will continue to add labels in the catalog as hospitals want and need more secondary artwork to print.”
