There is no doubt that police officers have dangerous jobs. Every year, communities across the US mourn the loss of the upstanding men and women who serve in public safety roles. A great number of these deaths are a direct result of accidents that occur as part of a routine traffic stop.

Where would you or your loved ones be without advanced healthcare technology?
For many people, the answer to that question isn’t something pleasant to think about. Luckily for all of us, healthcare practices, procedures, and technologies just continue to getting better. Today we are staring at a future where a cure for cancer is within reach. The reality is that improved health care practices and procedures save lives. And technology plays a monumental role in patient safety through the efficient application of life-saving practices. However, no matter how good a practice is, it’s only effective if people have the right tools to execute it.

Lottery and Gaming
It’s no secret that lotteries have been big business for decades, not only in the US, but around the globe. In the US alone in 2016, adults spent $72.7 billion on lottery tickets of all kinds. With jackpots reaching into the hundreds of millions of dollars, it’s no wonder lottery fever catches people from all walks of life, nor is it any wonder that people will go to extreme lengths to try to cheat the system. Every day, millions of people hand over hard-earned money for a chance at wealth, and every day, thousands of others scheme ways to defraud the system. In both cases, the lure of instant wealth (or even just an extra 20 bucks), draws folks to play some form of a lottery ticket.
Health Information Systems (HIS) are a crucial aspect of any hospital or health system. It is important that the patient’s information electronic health record or EHR is up-to-date, accurate, and secure in the information system for their health and safety. Any health record is only as good as what information it has and how it is used. According to HealthIT.gov, “EHRs can enhance patient safety and provide safer health care through comprehensiveness, speed, flagging potential conflicts, verifying medications and dosages, and reducing the need to repeat risky tests and procedures.”

Here are a few questions to help clarify that previous one. First, can this phone scan and record important information about medications, IV fluids, or patient data? Second, is it sterile enough to be used in areas with critical care patients? Third, do you depend on your phone as an extension of the quality care you provide? Finally, Does the battery on the phone need to last a full 12-hour shift, all while protecting and extending the life and integrity of your phone? If you answered yes to these criteria, then your phone isn’t really a phone, it’s a piece of medical equipment and your case has to do more than simply hold that phone.

When you understand healthcare workflow challenges, when you listen and purpose build a data capture solution to solve these challenges, you must be Code!
An innovator in healthcare automation and mobile technology, Code is excited to announce the launching of its highly anticipated next generation of wireless handheld barcode readers. The CR2700 is the new gold standard for healthcare barcode scanning, delivering unmatched reading performance in a seamless package, with inductive charging, to support even the most rigorous infection control practices.
“We are excited to roll out these new Code scanners,” said Joseph Hooks, Director, CTO, and CISO at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters in Norfolk, Virginia. “Our infection control processes are very strict, and we need technology designed to withstand repeated disinfecting.”
Code, an innovator in healthcare automation and mobile technology, is shipping the market’s first fully-enclosed battery case for the iPhone 7 and 8. Designed for healthcare, the CR7000 mobile case is exclusively built with PVC-free CodeShield® disinfectant-ready plastics and Dragontrail™ glass. This completely sealed enclosure not only protects the iPhone from repeated chemical wipe downs, but promotes a higher level of patient safety, removing access for germs to hitch a ride from one patient room to another. It’s the ultimate protection.
It's important that every aspect of your business is secure, even down to the barcodes. You wouldn't keep your retail doors unlocked overnight so anybody could just stroll in and steal all the merchandise or leave your cash register open and unattended, correct? What about patient information? Those little barcodes are a goldmine of information not only important for helping us do our jobs faster and more accurately but they can also pose a security issue. So why would you use a barcode symbology for sensitive data that anybody could copy/read?
When you think about your business, what aspects are crucial to its success? Do inventory levels and records keep you up at night? Are you sweating over quality control or turnaround time? A device that can help alleviate these concerns should be crucial to any business.
