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.

How do small businesses make themselves shine in the shadow of large retailers?
By getting inventive. From promotion to point-of-sale, innovating the way they engage customers, crafting the right customer experience will not only get them sharing your brand, but keep them coming back for more. Instead of using the same old technology, resellers can help their customers by offering creative new mobile solutions. The checkout process is a perfect example. Clunky cash registers may functionally meet business requirements, but instead of screaming “cutting edge” or “cool”, they sit there quietly, taking up too much space and reeking of antiquity. Unique consumer mobile devices have really changed the way people look at everything. Phones and tablets are easy-to-use, streamlined computers that can now take the place of that clunky cash register without draining the wallet. Who doesn't want or expect that simple Apple-isk experience today when they walk into a store?
Code, an innovator in healthcare automation and mobile technology, is bringing some additional excitement to the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) show in Orlando with the release of the CR7000 series healthcare mobile battery case. The durable protector for the iPhone 7 and 8 completely shields your valuable electronics while maximizing uptime with its quick-swappable battery, all in a compact package made to stand up to the toughest disinfecting chemicals.
