Hospital new barcode system13th November 2007
Wythenshawe Hospital is using barcode scanners in order to track and find paper patient records.
Staff working at the hospital - which is part of the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust - are able to scan in the codes onto paper records and find patients' electronic records. The system was designed and implemented by Kelgray, a company specialising in barcode systems.
Darren Wildman, sales manager for Kelgray, told E-Health Insider: “Wythenshawe had already been barcoding files on their previous paper-based system, and they wanted to use the same technology to eliminate the need for keyboard entry."
