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.
In the high-stress environment of hospitals, where lives are constantly on the line, patient care and comfort is a constant yet challenging issue. As anyone who has stayed in a hospital well knows, nurses and doctors perform checks, dispense medication, and prescribe treatments at all hours of the day or night. This hectic schedule means that medical specialists need a reliable way to keep track of the constantly changing needs of patients—including medication administration. Bedside point of care—the process healthcare workers use to organize and dispense medications—is an integral part of any hospital stay. With Code’s line of patented scanning solutions for the healthcare industry we make just about every aspect of the job easier. From patient safety, comfort, and care–a Code scanning solution is there to help monitor and verify.

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.

The business definition of credentialing is “the process by which the eligibility of a person for a particular job or task is established by determining if the person has the specified qualifications and fulfils the defined requirements (1).” In the healthcare industry, credentialing is determining whether an individual or “vendor” is legitimate and if they have the authority to enter the facility’s grounds for the purpose of providing a value added product or service.
Healthcare Meets a Mobile Revolution
With forward thinking ingenuity, and patient care as a priority, Rush University Hospital, a Chicago-based academic health system set out to improve the health of their patients and the diverse communities they serve. One of the first items on their list was to find the most efficient mobile solution to improve the varied prescribed medication process with accurate patient identification at the point of care. Shedding bulky sleds and additional scanning hardware, Rush incorporated enterprise-grade barcode scanning mobility, the first of its kind in healthcare, into their workflow using nurse favored and requested iOS devices.
When someone talks about "barcode scanning" in general, it has always meant hardware that is specialized for particular barcode types (1D, 2D, DPM, etc...) and for industries like healthcare, manufacturing, industrial, logistics, government, and others. Depending on the workflow complexity, this could even mean that there may be a need for more than one type of barcode scanner. Costs can start to exponentially climb when upgrades are needed, products are EOL'd, or their life-cycles simply come to a sad and damaged end.
