Barcode 360™ Manager
The foundation for a successful BCMA initiative is a unified, well-maintained infrastructure, and it all starts with data. Maintaining accurate product identifiers in the product master and bar code databases requires extensive resources, and failing to do so effectively is one of the key gaps that lead to scan errors.
A well maintained product master is an integral component of today’s data driven hospital pharmacies, and a key to attaining your meaningful use goals. Computerized Physician Order Entry, Bar Code Medication Administration and Electronic Medical Records all require a focused effort on data accuracy, which can be a significant challenge. BarCode360™ Safety Optimizer begins with product masterclean-up and maintenance, ensuring data integrity and accuracy, and creating the efficiencies you need to succeed and achieve your goals.
Bar code database
An inaccurate bar code database results in scanning errors, leading to a loss in confidence and satisfaction with your nursing staff and compromised patient safety. Much like the product master, developing, maintaining and troubleshooting this database requires a significant resource investment. BarCode360™ Safety Optimizer not only ensures an accurate bar code database, which reduces the need to manually scan products upon receipt, but also synchronizes it with your product master. This means consistent data is flowing through your pharmacy. BarCode360™ Safety Optimizer unifies the databases required to manage BCMA, which means a successful scan—every time.
BarCode 360™ Safety Optimizer goes beyond bar coding. It:
- Improves the scan rate by mapping recently purchased items to the product master
- Ensures reporting accuracy
- Enhances revenue capture
- Increases scan accuracy by avoiding errors associated with the manual barcode database process
- Reduces nurse overrides
- Improves nurse confidence in and satisfaction with BCMA
- Reduces need for resources assigned to daily database management
- Optimizes patient safety
