Code Delivers the First Android Barcode Reader Purpose Built for Healthcare
Code, a technology leader of image-based barcode readers, is set to launch its newest mobility reader, the CR4900, at HIMSS17. The CR4900 marries Code’s powerful barcode reading technology with the versatility of an Android operating system in a sleek, mini-tablet form factor.
“We’ve taken everything we’ve learned over the past 20 years from clinicians and built a tool specifically for their needs,” says Code’s President and CEO, George Powell. “Many other devices are adapted for use from other industries and applications, so they miss the mark when it comes to providing a true mobile solution for healthcare.”
Small enough to fit in one hand, the CR4900 features a built-in barcode reader with superior 1D and 2D read performance through patented dual-field optical technology used in thousands of healthcare facilities around the world. The field-tested, fast roaming Wi-Fi platform provides uninterrupted voice communication, while the built-in Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC ensure the CR4900 easily interfaces with a multitude of devices and platforms to enable any workflow.
Code’s partner, Procensis, has validated the CR4900 with their ProVoice-IP softphone client and is adding it to their solution portfolio to tackle the needs of healthcare barcode reading and mobile VoIP communication. As a provider of advanced mobile software and deployment/support services, Procensis has a thorough understanding of the mobility demands customers require, especially in highly concentrated areas like hospitals needing both voice and data. “Code has delivered a mobile solution with a great design and unique features that clinicians are going to love,” says Ed Kennedy, President of Procensis. “We are speaking to a number of customers now about piloting the CR4900 with our softphone and push-to-talk application so they can experience healthcare technology convergence at its finest.”
A bright, 5.0-inch touch screen lets users comfortably navigate mobile applications. The high-capacity, Quick-Swap battery keeps the unit powering through long shifts. Its unique and innovative Hot-Swap capability enables users to replace batteries without having to waste time logging out of their applications or placing the device in any special mode. The disinfectant-ready CodeShield® case protects it through frequent cleanings with the harshest chemical agents on the market.
Additional product features in the CR4900 include the Android 5.1 operating system and apps that put administrators in control. Buttons and dual-alert tri-color LEDs can be programmed to meet each facility’s unique workflow needs. The CR4900 also comes with an SDK for custom app development. The shatter-proof Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen survives drops and avoid scratches with full optical clarity for long shifts. An IP54 housing protects the CR4900 from water, dust, and cleaning products giving the CR4900 the durability to survive in the rugged healthcare environment.
The CR4900 takes healthcare enterprise mobility to the next level. See it in action at HIMSS17 in booth 1506 or learn more at www.codecorp.com.
