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:

The Guide to Succeeding with UDI Compliance

Posted April 5, 2018

To go along with yesterday’s blog about Unique Device Identification Compliance some may be wondering what is required to be fully compliant with the FDA. With another UDI deadline approaching it’s important to know the steps that will help you get in compliance. With the help of Zebra Technologies, they wrote a small walk through to help you through each step.

Read the walk through below to clear up any confusion. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact our dedicated account managers.

Unique Device Identification Compliance

Posted April 4, 2018

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established and continues to implement a unique device identification system to properly identify medical devices through their distribution and use. Once fully implemented, the label of most devices will include a unique device identifier (UDI) in human and machine-readable form.

The unique device identification system will be phased in over the next couple of years and offers several benefits. Implementing UDI will improve patient safety, modernize device post-market surveillance, and facilitate medical device innovation. To learn more about UDI read the infographic below!

QR Codes and Medicine Collide

Posted February 5, 2018

geneticsA new method for producing medicine has been developed by researchers from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and Abo Akademi University in Finland. They can produce a white edible material, on which they can then print a QR code consisting of a medical drug. This could be a solution and a possible replacement to the current method of mass production of medicine. Currently someone with a given illness will get the same product with the equal amount of an active compound as another patient with a less severe illness.

“This technology is promising, because the medical drug can be dosed exactly the way you want it. This gives [us] an opportunity to tailor the medication according to the patient getting it,” said Natalja Genina, an Assistant Professor at the University of Copenhagen.

The shape of a QR code will also enable the storage of data on the medicine itself. According to Genina all that’s required is a quick scan and the information of the given medicine would come up, this could reduce the cases of wrong or fake medication.

“If we are successful with applying this production method to relatively simple printers, then it can enable the innovative production of personalized medicine and the rethinking of the whole supply chain,” said professor Jukka Rantanen from the University of Copenhagen’s Department of Pharmacy.

Currently, researchers are working to refine the methods for this medical production.
