The use of bar codes in hospitals and healthcare management has simplified everything from patient care to hospital wide inventory. Hospital barcoding reduces human error, especially at the point of care. Making sure that the patient is accurately identified, and all of their records are on hand, guarantees a successful start of a procedure and allows for patient and product tracking throughout each day.
Barcodes can capture everything from
patients and linens
to office supplies and medication
even validating actions taken during patient care
Bar codes are valuable in their ability to organize actions and supplies throughout an entire hospital or place of practice. Such organization allows medical practices to efficiently access any information needed and streamline their customer service with error free patient point of care, and sales of medication and procedures.
