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.

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:

Mobile Device Convergence in Healthcare

Posted August 18, 2014

2014-08-18_1020Smartphones have transformed the way healthcare providers communicate, and these mobile devices are poised to revolutionize the way hospitals deliver care in 2014 and beyond.

Texting long ago surpassed voice calls as the favored method of communication among the general population, and it is rapidly gaining favor in hospitals. Doctors and nurses already exchange patient related texts on their own personal phones at many facilities, and as more hospitals issue mobile devices to employees, the ability to communicate quickly and access and update patient data on the move has become a critical function.

Deploying mobile, flexible, and reliable IT tools to caregivers is a top priority for provider organizations that not only need to meet new regulatory and technology requirements, but want to do so efficiently. At Cedars-Sinai Hospital in California, for example, the combination of smartphones and a new software solution to help prioritize alarms resulted in faster response times for emergency conditions, and a 50 percent reduction in overhead pages. Laboratory values are received 10 minutes faster and nurses are able to spend more time at the bedsides of patients who require their attention, according to a case study published by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Introducing Datalogic’s Powerscan DPM Imagers – PD9530-DPM and PD8590-DPM

Posted June 12, 2013

2013-06-12_0956Datalogic has introduced a new family of handheld area imagers specifically designed for applications based on codes printed with Direct Part Marking (DPM) technology. This new PowerScan family is a blend of the Datalogic experience with optical systems, hardware architecture, mechanical design and decoding software. Two different models are available allowing the customers to choose the best price/performance combination for their specific needs.

The PD9530-DPM imager has a standard illumination system and bases its reading capability on the decoding software. This imager offers great performance on a wide set of bar code types, but does not cover all DPM situations.

The PD8590-DPM imager is a highly specialized scanner with a multi-axis illumination system specifically designed for reading DPM technology. The reading performance relies on the combination of the decoding software and the illumination system. This imager can read all types of bar codes printed with DPM technology regardless of the type of surface involved.

Aim. trigger. decode: it’s that simple!
