Barcode-based solutions ensure that patients receive the correct drugs at the correct dosage. We had multiple customers who were satisfied with WaspLabeler, but wanted access to the NDC database, as well as reporting capabilities
Plano, Texas (Vocus) June 19, 2008
A powerful new tool developed by Wasp Barcode Technologies can dramatically improve healthcare institutions’ ability to safely dispense and track medications, improving patient care and ensuring compliance with extensive regulations. Created specifically to meet the demands of healthcare organizations, WaspLabeler db Tracker is marketed and sold exclusively through Health Care Logistics.
Based on the foundation of Wasp’s award-winning WaspLabeler barcode label design software, WaspLabeler db Tracker is loaded with features that reduce cost, time and risk of error. It includes pre-defined templates for hundreds of label types, including every label in HCL’s inventory. In addition, full access to the National Drug Code (NDC) database makes it quick and easy to populate label fields with a simple barcode scan, eliminating potentially harmful keystroke errors. WaspLabeler db Tracker offers an affordable price point at $325 for the software. Health Care Logistics is also offering bundles that include the software and a range of accessories, such as barcode scanners and label printers.
“Barcode-based solutions ensure that patients receive the correct drugs at the correct dosage. We had multiple customers who were satisfied with WaspLabeler, but wanted access to the NDC database, as well as reporting capabilities,” said Spencer Fullerton, sales and service manager for Health Care Logistics. “Now, with WaspLabeler db Tracker customized specifically for the healthcare industry, hospitals and their pharmacies can vastly improve patient safety.”
Less than 20 percent of the approximately 6,000 hospitals in the United States have fully implemented barcode scanning at patients’ bedsides, Fullerton said. This number should increase dramatically as healthcare institutions begin realizing the cost-savings and improved accuracy offered by solutions such as WaspLabeler db Tracker.
“With this customized version of WaspLabeler, we’ve made it easier than ever for healthcare institutions to achieve the efficiencies of barcodes,” said Tom O’Shea, general
manager for Wasp Barcode Technologies. “We are excited to partner with a leading healthcare provider like HCL that brings a wealth of industry knowledge and contacts. Blending our technology with their healthcare experience and marketing is a great way for Wasp to enter a new vertical market.”
Other features attractive to the healthcare industry include a login security option to limit access to authorized users only. A daily backup feature provides automatic data protection and retrieval. In addition, a repackaged medication report eliminates daily paper logs that are costly to create and maintain.
