Summary
  • Substantial advancements in bar coding and bar code reading have given hospitals a cost- and time-saving technique for tracking assets, inventories, records, specimens, and patients. Bar coding's major benefits are: improved traceability; virtual elimination of data entry errors, reduced inventory costs; prevention of stock problems; reduced procedural delays; and the relieving of professional employees from clinical functions. Bar coding captures data with a reliability that is estimated to be 50 times that of manual methods. Key to the efficient use of bar codes are: (1) their accurate reproduction, which is well within the capabilities of typical computer-driven laser printers, and (2) incorporation of bar coding capabilities in acquisition of new software packages purchased by the hospital. Two new bar code technologies are discussed: radio data networks and strobe scanners.
