The international conference provides a platform for healthcare professionals to share ideas, network and see solutions geared towards the improvement of healthcare systems globally.
Datalogic has showcased its advanced barcode scanning technology which can create a safer environment for patients from admittance to post care. Using automatic data capture eliminates manual data entry and its potential human error that can be fatal in healthcare environments, a press note said.
Speaking about the company’s participation in the international healthcare IT conference, Bill Parnell, President and CEO of Datalogic ADC, said, “Datalogic recognizes the importance of data capture technology in healthcare and has committed considerable resources to bring its benefits to hospitals, clinics, and other medical enterprises.”
Bar code technology at the point-of-care helps to assure the proper prescription is administered to the proper patient, supporting to the concept of Patient’s Rights. Bar code usage also advances inventory control, asset tracking, lab specimen tracking, data tracking and pharmacy drug verifications.
“We have developed healthcare specific products that combine our extensive experience in data collection technology with features such as disinfectant ready plastics with anti-microbial silver ion embedded enclosures,” Bill Parnell further stated.
