Honeywell’s Presentation Mode for Scanners

Posted July 11, 2016

Presentation mode gives customers the ability to scan barcodes without having to squeeze any triggers.  You “present” the barcode to the scanner and it scans.  Presentation mode uses ambient light and scanner illumination to detect barcodes.

There are two types of Presentation Modes:

  1. Presentation Mode.  In this mode the scanner’s LEDs remain dim until a bar code is presented to the scanner.  When a barcode is presented & detected the LEDs turn up, the aimer turns on, and the scanner scans the bar code.   This mode tends to do a better job with bad barcodes.
  2. Streaming Presentation Mode:  The scanner’s LEDs remain fully on and the scanner is always scanning.  When a barcode is presented the aimer turns on and the barcode is “scanned”.  This mode tends to scan good barcodes faster.  In Streaming Presentation Mode there is even a Normal flavor and an Enhanced flavor.
    • Normal = Good scan speed and the longest working ranges.
    • Enhanced = Fastest scan speed but less range.

The Connected Clinician: Revolutionizing Acute Care Nursing

Posted July 6, 2016

More than any other hospital staff member, nurses have felt the greatest impact to their workflow in support of Meaningful Use requirements and modern healthcare best practices. Ever-increasing government regulations for improved clinical documentation, in combination with a constant flow of new medical devices, have nurses spending more than 30% of their time in non-patient-care activities. Compound this with hospitals being squeezed financially from new government reimbursement laws, and the new reality is that nursing staffs are being reduced while simultaneously being asked to deliver more effective care. This demand for greater nursing efficiency and effectiveness has led to the creation of today’s modern Connected Clinician.

So what exactly is the Connected Clinician and what is enabling him or her to be more effective and efficient than ever before? The answer rests in new clinical mobile applications running on true Clinical Smartphones. Every leading Electronic Medical Records (EMR) software provider and specialty clinical software company is racing to release new mobile versions of their proven workflow applications to support the growing demand for greater mobility within the hospital. Applications such as vitals collection, meds administration, specimen collection, alarm management, nurse call and most importantly, care team communication are in the greatest demand. Reference apps that provide nurses and other clinical staff easy access to electronic drug data and dose safety information, such as eBroselow SafeDose, or medical dictionaries and disease reference guides, are very common as well.

Identifying your Barcode Symbology Type with a Honeywell Xenon of Granit Series Scanner

Posted July 1, 2016

If you have trouble identifying your barcode types (like me) – here is a trick for you.

  • Plug your scanner into your PC.
  • Turn on Word.
  • Go to page 199 of your Xenon/Granit User’s Guide and scan that barcode titled “Add Code I.D Prefix to All Symbologies (Temporary)”
  • Then scan the barcode in question.
  • You’ll see a character in front of the scanned data on your Word doc (or any app that displays scanned data).
  • Go to the section of the chart below (Linear, 2D, Postal) then to the fourth column titled “ID” under Honeywell; find your symbol; and your barcode type is in the first column – Symbology.   This chart is also in the back of the Xenon/Granit User’s Guide.

Note: This setting is temporary and will be removed when the unit is power cycled.

Medsen Apotheken Saves Time and Improves Customer Experience with Datalogic’s Gryphon

Posted June 17, 2016

Datalogic Gryphon 4000 Series ScannerMedsen Apotheken owns a chain of 42 pharmacies in the Netherlands with over 550 employees.  The company’s philosophy is to always put the customers’ health first.  This means that pharmacists should be dedicating as much time as needed to each customer.  Medsen Apotheken relies on innovation and implements technology to fulfill this goal.

The Challenge

One of the issues that pharmacies face is prescription delivery times.  Anyone who goes to a pharmacy is familiar with the problem: the medication hasn’t arrived, or isn’t ready when the customer comes to collect it.  “We regularly had to send customers home empty-handed, because their orders had not been delivered,” explains pharmacist Huong Bom.  “Customers would call us in advance to ask about the status of their prescription to make sure their trip would be worthwhile,” continued Bom’s colleague, Thi Tran.  Both pharmacists work at Groot Driene pharmacy in Hengelo, a medium-sized pharmacy.  With the goal of better informing its customers and increasing customer satisfaction, Medsen Apotheken turned to technology to resolve this issue.  They collaborated with Datalogic Business Partner Viridis Nederland in Naarden.
