Bar coding the future

The future is here—and it’s bar coded.

A 2010 study conducted by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found that a system that checks medications and doses using bar codes significantly cuts down on hospital drug errors. “We had the opportunity to design and implement a bar code-scanning system to ensure that every patient in the hospital gets the right medication at the right dose at the right time,” said lead researcher Dr. Eric G. Poon, the hospital’s director of clinical informatics.

“After implementing that new system, we found dramatic reductions in errors made during the process of administering medications,” he added. Using this system may prevent as many as 90,000 serious errors each year. T

At Electrone, we put safety first and foremost. That’s why Specimen Labels for healthcare facilities, with the use of Electrone’s Zebra Printers, can be printed at the exact point of collection with a bar coded label for a patient’s chart. These printers ultimately reduce the risk of entering incorrect information on patients. Additionally, by using the QL Plus series printers, pharmacy labels can be made that scan prescribed medicine and contain patient information. Avoid careless but critical mistakes by investing in hardware which can eliminate user error.

Printing makes perfect

As anyone who relies on a printer knows, having a responsive printer can make or break your workflow. Electrone has two options for printers: their Zebra line and their QL series.

The Zebra line has many applications for healthcare. Using Electrone’s Zebra Printers ultimately reduce the risk of entering incorrect information on patients. Nobody wants to prescribe the wrong medication—that’s why pharmacy labels can be made that scan prescribed medicine, as well as print bar coded labels containing patient information by using the QL Plus within the pharmacy.

The QL Plus series of printers is a great fit for price marking in retail. With the help of wireless Wan, markdowns are a cinch. Shelf labeling becomes a breeze, as the QL Plus series of printers can print one or several shelf labels at the required point of application.

A good printer can be hard to find. If you have an appropriate environment for the QL, why not explore the benefits? You can streamline your tasks and maximize your efficiency, using a printer that does exactly what you need it to—and more.

Electrone Americas has keypads for many Zebra Printers

One of the best business practices that Electrone America prides itself on is listening to the customer and devising an instrument that meets the customer’s needs and expectations. A good example of this is the custom range of the 720S serial key pads. Retailers doing markdown, hospitals making wrist band I.D, and many pharmacies needing label printing said they wanted a keypad that would integrate with their Zebra Technology printers. They sent in the request and their request was answered in spades.

 

While the Zebra printers are desktop, the keypad can sit right beside it. Customers can select standard or custom keys, wipe-clean keys and/or protective rubber buttons. If desired, the unit can be made to be wall-mounted. Good news for the user is the key pads have custom firmware and cables which allow them to integrate with any of the Zebra printers running the compatible version of ZBI (Zebra Basic Interpreter).

 

For those that have been planning and hoping, the answer is right here, right now.

Retail Uses for QL Plus Series Printers

The QL Plus series of printers by Electrone are great for price marking in retail. Retailers can give frequent responses to sensitive market challenges by printing and applying labels for markdowns at the product’s location with wireless LAN.

Also, the QL Plus series of printers are ideal in retail for shelf labeling. These printers help improve efficiency when shelf labeling as they can print one or several shelf labels at the required point of application.

To make implementing new pricing structures even easier, use the Electrone Kit with the preprogrammed keypad. The QL Plus series printers are mobile and can be easily integrated into your business infrastructure. They can be used in combination with the Zebra lines of printers by simply using ZPL, XML or EPL commands.

The QL Plus series are lightweight and durable printers that are easy to use, accommodating for numerous software applications, and are sure to meet all your needs in the retail market!
