Have you ever wondered about replacing your dedicated barcode scanners with a scanning solution integrated into a smartphone or other mobile device? Many managers and business owners have been curious about making the switch to mobile scanning apps. Like you, they had questions about how such a transition might work and how it would affect workflows and processes. For example:

A lot like peas and carrots or Sonny and Cher, certain things belong together. Barcode scanning has the outstanding ability to support healthcare’s leading performance and make it even better. How, you might ask? By reducing or even eliminating adverse drug events (ADEs), increasing patient safety, and eliminating transcription errors. Government mandates have made data capture solutions a necessary part of operations at every healthcare facility. Aside from regulations, data capture solutions ensure patient safety through iterative checks and documentation. Unique identifiers (barcodes) are attached to patients, medications, equipment, and pretty much every item located in a healthcare setting for track and trace purposes. Additionally, cleaning, inventory, and hospitality crews use data capture solutions to track room cleanings, patient nutrition, and equipment maintenance. Those little barcodes have a very big job.

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.

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.
