CAC Card Barcode Reader – CAC1910i

Need a reliable barcode scanner to read your CAC card?  We can help!  With the CAC1910i, we can scan and transmit both barcodes: the PDF417 on the front and the Code 39 barcode on the back.   If required, we can also set  the scanner to scan the front barcode but only send the data you require.  We often supply the scanners just to transmit the name on the card.  This is great for student attendance tracking logs, check in or check out procedures, and mailrooms, when service personnel come to claim packages and mail.  TCG CAC 1910i industrial scanner datasheet.   Video demonstration here    Email us at Sales@tcgbarcode.com or call (410)239-6808.

Why BCMA(BPOC) is so important..

It’s important for the patients and the hospitals.  About 15 years ago there were three quarters of a million Adverse drug event(ADE) reports.  With the advent of many EHR and barcode medication administration systems-that number is decreasing everyday.

We need to continue the push:

  • Patients who experienced adverse drug events (ADEs) were hospitalized an average of 8 to 12 days longer than patients who did not suffer ADEs, and their hospitalization cost $16,000 to $24,000 more.
  • Anywhere from 28 percent to 95 percent of ADEs can be prevented by reducing medication errors through computerized monitoring systems.
  • Computerized medication order entry has the potential to prevent an estimated 84 percent of dose, frequency, and route errors.
  • Hospitals can save as much as $500,000 annually in direct costs by using computerized systems.

TCG was the first company to work with OEM’s in the development of healthcare plastic and FIPS 140-2 secure barcode scanners.   We are the original.     Let us recommend the best BCMA Scanner for your Health Information Systems such as: AllScripts (Eclypsis), Epic, Cerner, CPIS, McKesson, Meditech, and Siemens.

Never put the wrong label on a specimen or sample again!

Don’t ever grab the wrong sample or specimen labels from the networked laser printer again. Zebra’s QLn Series Healthcare printers are small and light enough
to be easily carried on a belt clip or mobile medication cart and deliver labels at the point
of care. This saves time and money and improves the patient experience, not to mention-patient safety.

In addition, we recently added FIPS 140-2 to enhance wireless security on these devices.

TCG’s response to gray market products

As we head into this summer season, we thought it would be a good time to let all our valued customers know TCG continues to hold top partner levels with both Zebra and Honeywell.  We are a premier partner for both of these OEMS.

What does that mean?

It means we only purchase product direct from the factory or from one of the three certified Distributors.    It means we are trained and certified to support all the products we sell.  We will not just send you off to a factory help desk should you have any problems.  We maintain a brick and mortar building and not just a webstore.   It’s means the product we sell will have legitimate serial numbers recognized by the OEM warranty system.

Why is this important?

There are several companies distributing Honeywell and Zebra product that are not authorized to do so.  This is called gray market. This grey market product is sold directly from their webstore and through 3rd party resale sites.

The origin of this product did not come from an authorized USA distributor and may not be covered by any type of OEM warranty or support.

What are gray market items?

The “gray market” is made up of genuine goods sold through unauthorized channels in direct competition with USA authorized distributors. Because gray market items are sold by companies who are not authorized by the manufacturer to sell their products, gray market items do not have any warranty coverage.  Some of this product may also be new, old stock that is legitimately excessed by the original purchasers.

If you suspect you received gray market items, please contact us as soon as possible with a serial number of the product.  We can help trace the origins of the product and help you the best we can.
