Although the main purpose of a hospital is to heal and care for the well-being of its patients, the fact still remains that a hospital is a business. Billing labels provide a means of keeping track of the costs of caring for a patient. Billing labels are removed from products and added to a patient's chart. When it comes time to discharge a patient, these medical record labels are used to transfer information on a patient's usage to a billing system. Hospital billing labels also help keep track of a hospital's inventory. When charges for a certain product are entered into a billing system, the purchasing department knows that they must reorder the product. These collection labels can inform the purchasing department of where products must be delivered within the hospital. Billing labels can come in roll or sheet form. Various colors and sizes are available.
