Johannesburg, South Africa, 21 August, 2017 - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has introduced a new high-end thermal-transfer label printer that has been designed for quick and efficient customised identification of wires, cables and components. The new BMP61 label printer from Brady is a highly useful tool for those working in market sectors that use a sizeable amount of cables that require labelling, such as the electrical, power, telecom and ICT industries. The BMP61 printer targets installers, field technicians, maintenance technicians, site managers and electrical contractors, as well as workers in cabling, control panel and switchgear manufacturing or cable harness assembly. Using high-performance materials that can handle the toughest industrial identification applications, the printer is both fast and portable, making it suitable for use on site or in the field. The printer is capable of high-performance printing on a wide range of durable labels, and is more than capable of handling a range of identification challenges due to its wireless connectivity. It is particularly suitable for applications such as the identification of outdoor cables of various sizes and main electrical components in the field or within facilities. In addition, it can be used to replace engraved plates that identify components with printable labels that are virtually identical to engraved plates. Also available from RS are consumables and labels for the BMP61, including: engraved plate alternative labels in a range of sizes and personalised custom labels that can be ordered from a wide choice of personalisation options, including layout, shape, colour or logos. These labels can then be finalised using the BMP61 in the field by adding options such as serialisation code, barcode, number or text. The Brady BMP61 label printer is now available from RS.

Healthcare funders, which are required to protect resources to ensure sufficient funds are available to meet the needs of their members, cannot afford to be too trusting as fraud and abuse are an unfortunate reality confronting the industry. It is therefore fortunate that advanced technology and an artificial intelligence engine have been developed to detect improper claiming practices. “In our experience, the majority of South African healthcare service providers are truly dedicated to applying their expertise to improving patients’ health and preventing disease progression,” says Wilma Liebenberg, Chief Executive Officer of Knowledge Objects Healthcare (KOH). “Medical schemes demand no less for their members, and this is why healthcare professionals and schemes work together to ensure that all members receive equitable and appropriate evidence-based care. This being said, human error sometimes arises and, as has unfortunately been seen, human frailty means that schemes need to be on high alert to prevent healthcare fraud. “In this day and age, there is certainly no need to be practising deception or playing ‘secret agent’ games to get to the bottom of such suspicions in order to safeguard members’ funds,” she adds. Many medical schemes experienced much higher claims in 2016, which in turn tends to drive membership contribution increases. In order to ensure that medical scheme resources are only used to fund legitimate claims, inappropriate claims must be identified proactively and managed quickly and effectively. “We recognise that healthcare service providers are not coding specialists. It is therefore not surprising that they might make mistakes from time to time. Regrettably, yet understandably in light of fraud blighting the industry, some medical schemes tend to treat these providers with quasi-criminal suspicion until they are proven innocent without affording healthcare professionals an opportunity to rectify the mistake.
