Healthcare Applications Overview

What better places to benefit from CipherLab than where personal, patient care is the critical focus every hour of every day of the year - the hospital and clinicians' offices. AIDC is erupting in healthcare, improving accuracy and quality of care. With more efficient patient management, drug and supplies dispensing, and records keeping, fewer caregivers can spend more time doing what they do best - caring for their patients' well-being.

On the patient floor, nurses are constantly on the move. This is where Bluetooth® technology and Wireless LAN thrive best, with CipherLab intelligent wireless scanners enabled with Bluetooth® technology and Wireless LAN-enabled pocket-size mobile computers. As nurses scan patient armbands, drugs, and supplies, they are cross-referenced for accurate dispensing and record keeping, giving nurses more time with their patients and less time spent on paperwork. Doctors stay informed with immediate updates to patients' electronic records, and hospital management has better visibility of activities throughout the facility.

In the pharmacy, handheld scanners eliminate paperwork and paper-based trails that can suffer from errors and get lost. The right drugs get to the right patient at the right time. And pharmacy managers benefit from deeper insight into what drugs are used and where, adding security to better management.

In admitting, scanning and electronic patient records reduce the mind-boggling paperwork required before a patient can be treated. Handheld scanners make quick work of initiating patient records and eliminate paper redundancies, so common in highly regulated services, like healthcare. The bottom line - more patients can be admitted and treated faster.
