How Mobile WMS Can Solve Major Challenges in the Healthcare Sector

The healthcare industry is facing many challenges these days. Requirements are evolving rapidly. In an environment where every second counts, mobile barcode scanners – purpose-built for healthcare – are critical tools to help address these challenges. These scanners are designed to make nursing and other patient care workflows faster, easier, and more productive and can be a life savior.

When every second count

The healthcare industry calls for scanners that are disinfectant-ready and specifically designed to withstand frequent exposure to cleaning solutions recommended for the healthcare industry. Moreover, the healthcare industry has recognized that medical errors are one of the major concerns of on-site healthcare. These errors can be reduced with automatic identification technologies like a Mobile WMS barcode scanning solution from Tasklet Factory. Barcode technology can prevent medical errors by providing detailed and reliable information on the site of patient care.

Choosing the right solution and carefully planning the implementation

Effective and successful implementation of a Mobile WMS barcode scanning solution depends on various issues including financial planning, organizational readiness, required changes for the workflow of healthcare providers, and existing information technology infrastructure. Therefore, implementing a barcode scanning solution in hospitals or the healthcare industry can help to avoid the cost of medical errors; the staff will make fewer mistakes, lower the costs of overtime and make sure that all relevant information is provided.

Honeywell offers two scanners to the market designed for the healthcare and medical industries.

CT40 HC – Focus on streamlining nursing – the ideal solution for the healthcare sector

In an environment where every second counts, the CT40 HC device is designed to make nursing and other patient care workflows faster, easier, and more productive. It starts with a powerful processor and plenty of memory to run the Mobile WMS solution from Tasklet Factory. The CT40 HC is built with healthcare-grade materials to help protect patients from getting infections.

The CT40 HC also features a rugged build, including a Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 touch screen. The barcode scanner is rugged enough to survive accidental drops, so healthcare workers can focus on keeping patients safe, not the device. This level of durability also leads to a lower TCO, including less downtime and fewer work disruptions.

Approved for Android Enterprise

As an Android Enterprise Recommended device, the CT40 HC is built on Honeywell’s Mobility Edge™ platform. Meaning it’s easy to deploy and optimize and gives future-proof investment protection. Starting with Android O, the CT40 HC supports upgrades through Android R., and security updates are available through Honeywell Sentinel™ for up to five years past the last Google patch.

Together, that adds up to the longest lifecycle in its class – and an ideal solution for healthcare deployment.

ScanPal EDA51 HC – Allow the caregivers to be there 100% for the patients

The ScanPal EDA51 HC barcode scanner is designed for light-duty applications, an easy-to-use, sleek, and pocketable assistant that enables caregivers to deliver excellent, patient-focused care. It also lowers the total cost of ownership of a solution that’s purpose-built for healthcare.

The ScanPal EDA51 HC has 12 hours of battery power, enabling medical professionals to access the Mobile WMS app when and where they need it. Accuracy is essential for delivering quality care. That’s why closed-loop medication management and sample collection based on barcode reading is now the standard practice for patient safety.

Image documentation and an extremely rugged scanner

The ScanPal EDA51 HC equips the healthcare worker to instantly and accurately capture this barcode data – even if a barcode is damaged – with its powerful, integrated scanner. It can also document images to aid in patient care with the device’s autofocus, 13-megapixel color camera. Furthermore, to help support your infection prevention protocols, this mobile device is made with a healthcare-grade housing that you can frequently disinfect over its entire three-year lifespan.

The ScanPal EDA51 HC helps to deliver excellent care at a low total cost of ownership. With its intuitive, modern touchscreen design, the device is easy to use with a short learning curve together with the Mobile WMS solution from Tasklet Factory. In addition, its sleek and pocketable design is comfortable enough to use and carry all day – but rugged enough to survive in demanding healthcare environments.
