The Journey to 2D Barcodes in Healthcare

Picture a world where healthcare is not just a service but a promise of transparency and safety. In this ever-evolving landscape, a groundbreaking transformation is taking place, driven by the demands of both consumers and patients. They are clamoring for information that is clear, traceable, and trustworthy. And at the heart of this shift lies the adoption of two-dimensional (2D) barcodes and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies.

But how do you prepare for this monumental transition? To answer that question, we spoke to @GwenVolpe, a visionary leader from @Fresenius Kabi, a trailblazing force in healthcare. 

Gwen shares insights into the benefits of these technologies, the importance of customer involvement, and the exciting potential of artificial intelligence in healthcare. If you are wondering how to make sure you’re ready for the transition, this episode is for you. 

Key takeaways: 

  • Fresenius Kabi is leading the way in integrating RFID and 2D barcodes into their pharmaceutical products, enhancing patient safety and streamlining clinician workflows.

  • There is a significant impact of RFID and 2D barcodes on automating inventory management and reducing manual data input, ultimately improving patient safety in healthcare.
