CAC Card Barcode Reader – CAC1910i

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.

BCMA Barcode scanner at point of care

 

 

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.

Know your battery life.

The purpose of the field report is to pass on relevant information about the performance of the product and why users misinterpret a bad battery for a broken device.

The use case is the Intermec CN70 in storage facilities tracking assets since 2012. These devices are operated by both a permanent and a temporary work force.

The initial feedback on the devices was very positive. Over time the users started to complain about the Cn70 units failing. These reports were only occurring in facilities that had an extremely high usage of the devices. Most of these complaints were unexpected shut down or black screens on the units. The spreading issue was being blamed of faulty devices.

A common theme when the root cause isn’t understood or the expectations are beyond what the device is capable of providing is the users blamed the device, when the issue is with aging batteries. High use sites rotate or hot swap batteries and similar symptoms were being seen across the facility. The batteries had been in service for 3-5 years. Upon further investigation the battery diagnostic utility on the units wasn’t being used to determine the health state of the battery Users only relied on the charge indicator and if it was above 50%. This status bar was misleading them into thinking a battery was preforming optimally when in fact it was not capable of holding a charge.

By implementing a battery replacement schedule these issues can be avoided. Most batteries will perform well for a period of 2 years under normal use conditions. However extreme use cases can deplete batteries after a year. It’s important to understand the use conditions and to monitor the health of your batteries.

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.
