Code Products in Healthcare
Our scanning technology is changing the way you do healthcare!
For 75% of barcode scanning, pretty much any barcode scanner will work. But for those where fast, accurate, and reliable scanning of even damaged barcodes makes the difference in quality patient care, for those who need the ability to scan where others simply can’t…there is only Code.
Point-of-Care (POC)—Nursing Workflow Bedside Medication Administration
Medication errors are one of the most significant safety issues in healthcare. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that more than 770,000 injuries and deaths occur each year as a result of Adverse Drug Events (ADEs) or medication errors in hospitals.
Code is an innovative leader in integrating barcode reading technology into medication administration processes. When administering medication, matching drug to patient via barcode improves patient safety, quality of care, and clinical productivity. Today, POC workflows are increasingly going mobile with integrated scanning as part of their electronic health records system. Code’s CortexDecoder was the first integrated soft-scanning solution to kick off this mobile revolution.
MEDICAL SUPPLY TRACKING
In a healthcare setting, there are countless medical supplies coming in and out every single day. Tracking that inventory is paramount to ensure that the supplies that are needed are always on hand. Code healthcare scanners are the key to your supply tracking needs.
Are your disposable gloves almost out of stock? Need more syringes or hand sanitizer? Setting up a barcode solution with Code can help your hospital maintain a seamless supply chain and workflow. Code's healthcare scanners are built with PVC-free disinfectant-ready CodeShield® plastics, so sterilization is never an issue. Check out the supply tracking scanners below.
TRACK, TRACE, AND VERIFY LAB SAMPLES
When working with blood, lab cultures, or other specimens, mix-ups can be deadly. When tracking lab samples it is important that the samples are tracked through their entire journey. Using barcode tracking significantly reduces the chances of a potentially hazardous mixup.
Additionally, it is crucial to use sterile equipment in these processes to avoid cross-contamination. Code's CodeShield® plastics can be disinfected by the industry's harshest chemicals making the sterilization process a breeze. With CodeShield® protecting the electronic components, your lab staff can maintain the utmost safety while continuing to capture data.
Scanning barcodes on medications is a very involved process. It's crucial to utilize a scanner that can read every barcode thrown at it—on any surface. Drug barcodes can include multiple pieces of information like expiration dates, lot numbers, and the FDA-required National Drug Code (NDC).
Code scanners read all barcode symbologies (and can even read more than one at the same time). They easily fit into pharmacy workflows to scan medication at various stages of the preparation and dispensing processes. The information on medication labels can then be tracked and read with confidence—never leaving you to worry if you will be able to scan the barcode for the information you need when you need it. Code scanners and decoding technology continue to read barcodes that others simply can't.
A hospital, like any other company, has many administrative tasks that keep business flowing. Checking patients, vendors, and doctors in and out, payroll, insurance, and the list goes on. Because healthcare is so high traffic in nature, it is important to have scanners that are built to keep up.
Code offers scanners that can parse ID and driver license information, omni-directionally scan any barcode—in any condition, and can read in low light or situations with increased glare. A Code reader will ensure that healthcare admin tasks are always on track. Join the thousands of healthcare facilities worldwide that have increased efficiency and decreased errors by automating administrative workflows.
Mobile technology is advancing more and more every day. Nurses and clinicians are now finding it beneficial to use mobile devices on the job for charting, scanning, calls, peer-to-peer messaging, and other job functions. Wouldn't it be nice to have a case that protected mobile devices from harsh medical disinfectants and extended battery life? Code has you covered with cases featuring PVC-free CodeShield® plastics, Dragontrail™ glass screen protectors, and integrated batteries that double battery life.
Want some software-only decoding options? CortexDecoder™ turns iOS devices into enterprise-grade barcode scanners. CortexWedge™ App is a decoding keyboard application that will turn a mobile device into an enterprise-quality scanner without any additional integration.
