Mobile data acquisition for health & medicine
Applications in medicine and healthcare
The highest quality in data capture is our uncompromising demand on our scanners and data capture devices - especially in the healthcare sector. Because here the quality of elementary data can be vital in case of doubt. Our high-performance devices securely capture barcodes on patient wristbands, labels on medicines and RFID transponders on medical equipment to optimise healthcare processes.
Digitalisation in healthcare: Mobile data capture as a basis
As in all industries, digitalisation is advancing steadily in the healthcare sector and the digital demands on clinics, professionals as well as suppliers and pharmacies are increasing. Better patient treatment or faster patient care go hand in hand with access to error-free patient data to which doctors and nursing staff as well as other healthcare providers have access. It is important to ensure that the data is absolutely correct. Our scanners and terminals can be used to read codes from patient wristbands, medications and electronic patient records without error - even if they are damaged. This ensures the quality of your treatment and optimises throughput.
Inventory management in pharmacies and medical facilities
Pharmacies can guarantee medical care with our mobile data entry (MDE) devices, because they keep them precisely informed about their stock of medicines. All important information about the medicines is recorded securely and transparently - from the ingredients to the shelf life to the application. This documentation not only enables pharmacies to reorder products from pharmaceutical companies, but all other stations in the processing chain can also use the recorded data when it is transmitted to a higher-level system, for example in real time via WLAN. This ensures improvements in patient care processes throughout the entire process and ensures the availability of essential medicines. Of course, stocks in medical facilities can also be precisely recorded with our MDE devices in order to maintain an overview at all times.
Mobile data collection in ambulances: RFID technology for efficient control
A practical example of the use of scanners in the medical environment is the use of RFID technology in ambulances: instead of checking the stock of medical equipment in the ambulance manually at the end of the shift, the RFID scan takes care of this safely and much faster. Because if all essential parts of the equipment are equipped with an RFID transponder, a simple scan in the vehicle provides a secure overview of the available equipment. This means, for example, that shifts can be changed in the shortest possible time - with the certainty of having the necessary medical equipment on board the ambulance.
With DENSO against the pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered discussions about a digital vaccination card almost everywhere in the world. What exactly it should look like is decided differently from country to country. But almost everyone agrees on one aspect: the best way to store and retrieve relevant personal information and vaccination history is the QR Code®. However, the data stored is personal and therefore highly sensitive information.
Protecting sensitive data in the health sector
To protect sensitive information from unauthorised access, we recommend a further development of our QR Code®: the Secure QR Code®, or SQRC® for short. In addition to an area that can be read by all reading devices and apps, the special SQRC has an encrypted area. This can only be read by devices that have a corresponding decryption code. This ensures that sensitive data can only be accessed by persons who are authorised to do so.
