Barcode Scanners and Healthcare Go Hand-in-Hand

Posted by Kim Justesen on Mar 10, 2020 5:00:00 AM

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.

Healthcare Information Systems Joining the Mobile Scanning Revolution

Posted by Leslie Titus Bryant on Aug 27, 2019 6:00:00 AM

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.”

When Is a Phone Not a Phone and a Case More Than an Accessory?

Posted by Leslie Titus Bryant on Aug 2, 2019 12:55:59 PM

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.
