Why You Shouldn’t Settle for Conventional EHR Systems

Posted July 8, 2020

A mere decade ago, most hospitals nationwide counted on paper-based systems and manual data entry to keep track of patient records. While newer software has virtually displaced manual data entry out of the healthcare field, current electronic health record (EHR) systems continue to contribute to staff burnout, an issue that still plagues over 50%[1] of healthcare professionals. To minimize burnout while integrating new technologies, contemporary EHR solutions must include patient care optimization as one of its main goals. By favoring patient experience in addition to data protection, novel EHR tracking systems hold the potential to:

  • Create new and safe communication channels between caregivers and patients
  • Seamlessly compile and share medical history within a secured platform
  • Accelerate data entry to increase valuable one-on-one time with patients
  • Reduce costs associated with inaccurate forms and misidentification
  • Provide clear picture of common illnesses currently being treated

Go beyond conventional

Combining data capture with end-to-end visibility, Barcodes, Inc. works with leading manufacturers to lower error rates in healthcare, ultimately helping you raise the standards in quality care. From crucial software development to government-grade security, enhance your EHR tracking system with the next generation of computing technology.

See how we leverage Zebra’s TC52-HC to enhance EHR tracking systems.

Your patients and your staff deserve better. Contact us today to start optimizing your EHR tracking system with a solution that’s committed to better care.

Your Pharmacy Doesn’t Have time for “Complicated”

Posted June 29, 2020

2015 broke the record for most drugs approved by the FDA, releasing as many as 45[1] new drugs into the public market. In addition to new products, pharmacies would also have to adapt to new pricing, storage requirements, and government compliance measures to accommodate change. With new approvals comes the new need for corrected pharmacy tracking, a system that can ultimately dictate your customers’ experience -and most importantly- their health. 

Complicated tracking equals complicated care

Without proper visibility, your operations are exposed to misidentification risks, which can lead to detrimental health risks and/or financial loss. To uphold government and service standards, pharmacy tracking and traceability systems must focus on accuracy and adaptability as new changes can come at any moment. Equipped with both intelligent software and Zebra-powered hardware, Barcodes, Inc. streamlines adaptable accuracy into your workforce. See how in our video:

Faster printing and labeling gives your pharmacy staff the upper hand to quickly adapt to new changes without losing visibility or productivity. Moreover, since it’s built with Zebra’s ZD420-HC printer, custom labels, and readily available TrueSupport, Barcodes, Inc.’s pharmacy tracking solutions ultimately integrate:

Is Your Technology Helping or Hindering Patient Care?

Posted June 23, 2020

In a span of ten years, over 90%[1] of medical facilities nationwide have switched from paper-based tracking to automated systems, yet patient identification problems continue to persist in the digitized era. Researchers at the ECRI Institute suggest that technology may be responsible for as much as 15%[2] of patient misidentification errors occurring predominantly at the patient’s bedside. Several technical issues may be to blame, including:

  • Poorly printed identification wristbands
  • Complicated or “buggy” tracking software
  • Lack of available devices
  • Devices incapable of capturing data without line of sight

Explore the advantages of a high-performing patient identification solution in our video:

Keep Errors Out of Your Medication Administration System

Posted June 9, 2020

Coming in behind heart disease and cancer, medication administration errors stand as the third leading cause of death in the U.S., eventually leading to recurrent relabeling efforts and strict compliance guidelines. On the hospital floor, staff is encouraged to verify the Five Rights to prevent errors before they occur.

  • Right Patient
  • Right Drug
  • Right Time
  • Right Dose
  • Right Form

However, with the large influx of patients and current hospital overcrowding issues, manual verification can be overwhelming, contributing to an average of 100,000[1] medication administration errors reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) per year. With the correct technology and expertise, Barcodes Inc. equips your staff with medication administration solutions designed to overcome one of healthcare’s toughest challenges. See how we can help:

Three risks to look for in your specimen collection system

Posted June 9, 2020

Studies suggest specimen collection can influence up to 70%[1] of treatment plans and medical decisions. However, even the most accurate specimen will fail to do good if matched with the wrong patient. With over seven billion specimens collected per year, the average 1:300 error rate can be detrimental to both patient health and healthcare efficiency. To mitigate specimen collection error, healthcare specialists recommend tracking three common risks hiding in your hospital:

  • Poor staff communication channels – Efficient care relies on committed collaboration between staff. Conducting on-site assessment and project management services, Barcodes, Inc. works with you to implement secured communication channels and specimen labeling that’s compliant with HIPAA standards.
  • Complicated data collection software – Complex software can erase manual data entry but not its errors. Designing tailored software that fits your workflow, Barcodes, Inc simplifies data collection and sharing.
  • Unclear specimen visibility – As specimens are re-labeled throughout the lab, Barcodes Inc. simplifies specimen processing with Zebra’s DS8100 healthcare-grade scanner to accelerate streamlined data capture, maximizing overall visibility. Learn more about it in our video below:

Why Zebra Scanners?

To reduce risk potential, our technicians strive to match your crucial operations with easy-to-use technologies. Ushering in adaptable efficiency, Zebra’s DS8100 healthcare scanners can help you enhance the patient experience with:

How to Operate a Pharmacy in the Age of Social Distancing

Posted June 2, 2020

How Have Pharmacies Been Impacted in the Age of Social Distancing?

The rise of the current health crisis has many pharmacies feeling the increased pressure to continue to operate while keeping their customers and employees safe. Furthermore, many pharmacies have limited their in-store traffic, closed stores altogether and restricted prescription pickup to drive-thru and curbside only. Pharmacies are delivering essential goods and services in an efficient manner. Whether it be in-store, drive-thru or curbside, pharmacies are looking to reduce the exchange of personal items such as insurance cards, ID cards, loyalty cards and digital coupons and the time customers spend waiting in line. Pharmacies are now accelerating their evaluation and deployment of dedicated secondary scanning devices.

How Can Barcodes, Inc. and Honeywell Deploy a Safe Pharmacy Solution?

Honeywell’s lineup of barcode scanners offer a safer alternative, while allowing for increased productivity. Their ability to accurately read 1D and 2D barcodes the first time eliminates wasted seconds from every transaction, while minimizing unnecessary contact, and allowing for

servicing of more customers. Honeywell’s barcode scanners are simple to integrate with existing IT infrastructure, shortening ramp up times and getting critical tech in place to meet today’s demand. Couple your hardware solution with Barcodes, Inc.’s TrueSupport to get the best service from a expert staff.

The Honeywell Xenon Extreme Performance (XP) 1952h is a reliable handheld healthcare barcode scanner with disinfectant-ready plastics that withstands the effects harsh cleaning agents while minimizing the spread of infectious diseases.

Meanwhile, the Honeywell Genesis 7580g hands-free presentation scanner is ideal for a retail point of sale counter environment where the customer can experience a contactless payment and mobile couponing experience.
