Datalogic Scanning understands that the healthcare industry is unique in its primary use of AIDC (automatic identification and data capture) technology: patient safety. At the same time, the healthcare industry also benefits from improved inventory control, asset tracking, and data management. AIDC technology can improve patient safety by helping detect counterfeit drugs in pharmacies, and ensure the right patient receives the right treatment or medicines.
With over 35 years of industry knowledge and experience in AIDC technology, Datalogic is clearly the best choice for healthcare providers where patient safety is paramount, and errors are not an option. All Datalogic Scanning products have been innovatively developed and exhaustively tested to ensure they lead the way in terms of quality, reliability and performance.
Datalogic Scanning traditionally serves the following healthcare sectors:
- Patient Care
- Life Sciences
Healthcare and Bar Code Scanning
Bar coding is currently the most widely used form of AIDC technology in the healthcare industry. Datalogic bar code scanners can be used for many different applications within the healthcare industry to prevent medical errors. Some of these applications include:
- Medication management systems – delivering the right drug, to right person, at the right time
- Drug identification – bar coding can help eliminate counterfeit or expired drugs from being distributed
- Infusion safety – one of the most common medical mistakes is incorrect infusions, bar coding blood and other products helps eliminate this mistake
- Patient identification – makes sure the right patient is receiving the right treatments
- Specimen collection – ensures correct patient receives right analysis
- Laboratory work – guarantees that the right tests are performed
- Surgical instrument sterilisation: small bar codes can enable the automatic identification of which instruments have been sterilised and when
The benefits barcodes offer healthcare organisations are significant. Errors, many of which are caused by getting the patient identity wrong, currently cost the UK’s National Health Service around £2 billion in extra bed days. Today healthcare and pharmaceutical industries are rapidly adopting 2D barcodes in order to store more information and improve security against counterfeiting and product tampering. The Datalogic Gryphon 2D scanner is the perfect device for this type of application.
The following list of Datalogic Scanning products represents what we believe are the best fits for the healthcare industry. However, individual companies in healthcare, pharmaceuticals and life sciences might have special needs or requirements, such as a scanner capable of operating in extreme cold storage facilities, where a Datalogic Dragon or PowerScan, rugged, industrial scanner might be more suitable.
