Varlink, the York-based mobile computing and data capture specialist distributor, has introduced the latest addition to the Opticon OPI scanning range. Ergonomic and lightweight the OPI-3301 is ideal in any fast pace healthcare environment to help speed up response times and improve patient safety systems.
The OPI-3301 combines wireless technology alongside a powerful 2D imager to capture the required information from any orientation, minimising time and providing a quicker more effective solution for healthcare staff.
The built in Bluetooth capability allows the OPI-3301 to communicate with other devices such as Computer on Wheels (COWs) or tablet based devices to provide nurses with the mobility to move from bed to bed without disturbing patients. By increasing the validity of patient records during scanning, nurses are able to deliver a safer, more efficient service to ensure the correct treatment and medication are provided.
The OPI-3301 provides fast, reliable 1D and 2D barcode scanning to help with a variation of different applications such as blood tracking, record management and instrument tracking.
The recent standardisation of wristbands in healthcare has highlighted the importance of accurate information. Due to limited print space available on wristbands linear barcodes are no longer viable, they pose limitations that 2D barcodes can easily overcome.
The visibility of 2D patient wristband systems means larger amounts of patient information can be stored, increasing the validity of patient records and improving point-of-care safety for patients, to ensure they receive the correct treatment.
Simply implementing the OPI-3301 into the patient identification process can dramatically improve patient safety, increase efficiency and reduce costs. The plug and play ability guarantees a quick connection to any medical clinical assistant, allowing users to efficiently move the OPI-3301 from one device to another with minimal disruption.
