Solutions for Medical Colleges

Familiarize medical students with the equipment that they will be using once they begin their residency programs with Barcoding, Inc.’s automated data capture solutions. Within your institution, create lab simulations to show students how hospitals and healthcare facilities can use barcode and RFID (radio frequency identification) systems to increase accuracy and efficiency.

Wireless Connection (RF) and Batch Collection Solutions

Either performed with a wireless connection (RF) or through batch collection, data collection with portable terminals can help you perform hospital tasks including inventory control and bedside operations. Because different hospitals and healthcare facilities have many different needs in which either collection methods are most appropriate, Barcoding allows users to easily create their own custom solution. Once the data have been collected, it is uploaded directly back into the ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) database. Companies have developed handheld applications for existing inventory, security, and route accounting databases. It is possible to integrate both batch and wireless applications within your facility.
  • Batch data collection refers to types of applications in which information is collected and stored on a handheld terminal. After the work is complete, the handheld is placed into a docking cradle, and the information is uploaded all at once into the host application. Batch solutions are ideal for intensive scanning applications where the collected data is not needed immediately.
  • Wireless data collection, or RF data collection, though more expensive to implement than batch, will provide you with updated information instantaneously. This can be important when the information is time sensitive and needs to be updated constantly.

Inventory Control Solutions

Reduce time-consuming, error-prone data entry with Barcoding’s inventory control solutions. By using barcode data collection software and mobile terminals, better manage inventory, track equipment in use, and make sure that the right supplies are delivered to patients on time.

Inventory Control Applications

  • Stockroom: Ensure the optimal inventory level of consumable items, such as medications and supplies, in your stockroom. Learn more about stockroom inventory management.
  • Check in/Check out Situations: Track items that will be shared or re-used over longer periods of time, such as X-rays, MRI results, diagnostic tools and other medical equipment. Learn more about check in/out inventory management.

Fixed Assets Management Solutions

Although fixed assets are typically stationary, staff must still keep an accurate inventory of these items, which included medical equipment, computers, televisions, chairs, and beds. Barcoding’s data capture technology can help automate and expedite fixed asset management. For example, using a rugged, handheld device, workers can easily scan barcodes on these objects, run a report of all items in the office, and quickly see if anything is missing or has been moved. Plus, instantaneously generate financial reports that indicate the depreciation of your assets over time.
