Scandit, Epic Rover to Enable Accurate Native iOS Camera Scanning in Healthcare

Scandit, the enterprise technology platform for mobile computer vision and augmented reality (AR), has announced that the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK was used to add powerful scanning functionality to Epic´s Rover iOS app for nursing clinical workflows, the company said.

This new functionality enables nurses to do barcode medication scanning using iPhone´s powerful built-in camera, without the need for an expensive, purpose-built device.

Healthcare professionals increasingly rely on barcode scanning on mobile devices to error-proof critical processes, streamline workflows, and provide higher-quality care for patients. With Scandit´s barcode scanning, authorized clinical users of Epic´s electronic health record can use accurate, camera-based scanning on iOS.

By moving to software-based mobile barcode scanning, healthcare organizations are replacing costly dedicated scanners, and achieving significantly lower total cost of ownership. The cost savings can be used to roll-out scanning functionality to a far greater proportion of the workforce, which brings dramatic efficiency benefits and supports regulatory compliance.

Scandit did the work to seamlessly integrate the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK for iOS as an Apple mobility partner. Apple is working with its mobility partners, a group of app developers and solution providers that are building business solutions for iOS, to change the way businesses work. Scandit is excited to be a part of this initiative and is delivering business transformation through enhanced mobile scanning.

Scandit enables enterprises and consumers to change the way they interact with everyday objects and augment the physical world with real-time data captured by scanning barcodes and recognizing text, objects, and other visual identifiers using smartphones, tablets, wearables, drones, and robots.
