QR Codes Used in Medical Documents

When you think of QR codes, your mind may not immediately jump to the medical industry, but that’s exactly what the Oklahoma Medical Board had in mind.

The Oklahoma Medical Board is using QR codes in the bottom right corner of their official documents so that patients and authorities will be able to easily verify authenticity.

The QR code will provide details such as the physicians’ qualifications and will also allow physicians to quickly login to training courses and other items. The QR codes will also be able to properly identify verifications during emergencies.

QR codes have definitely graduated beyond quirky marketing ploys and expanded their breadth into the medical field.
