New RxScan and Unitech MS337H-NDC handheld NDC imager scanner kit simplifies the reading of medication NDC number barcodes

Delaware, OH November 1, 2010 – RxScan and Unitech, leaders in healthcare barcode reading have released the MS337H-NDC handheld imager scanner kit. The kit, designed specifically for the healthcare market, includes the NDC Translator software, a patented medication NDC number barcode translation parsing application, and the MS337H handheld imager scanner.

This combination provides medical professionals and healthcare organizations with an "out-of-the-box" NDC barcode scanning solution aimed at increasing medication use accuracy and patient safety. It enables the instant NDC number decoding of the barcoded information on a medication that is required by a wide variety of healthcare medication administration and billing applications. RxScan and Unitech are constantly striving to offer healthcare clients the latest technological advances. 

The patented NDC Translator application enables the conversion of a medication’s NDC bar code information into the 11 digit NDC format required by a wide variety of healthcare medication administration and billing applications without the use of drug dictionary cross reference files.

“Reading medication NDC bar codes is a significant, costly, time consuming, high maintenance endeavor for any healthcare organization," said RxScan President Max Peoples. "The NDC Translator software and MC337H imager scanner combination is intended to simplify and minimize the efforts needed to read medication NDC bar codes."

The MS337H handheld imager scanner has an antimicrobial enclosure and aggressive decoding performance, and features true omni-directional 2D area scanning technology with a high-resolution image sensor and wide-angle lens. Perfect for scanning patient identification bracelets and medication NDC number bar codes, the MS337H offers a large scanning area to improve efficiency and productivity in data collection.

The MS337H is constructed with a durable antimicrobial housing. Capable of withstanding multiple 5-foot drops to concrete, the MS337H is rugged enough for any healthcare application. While standard healthcare procedures require cleaning and disinfection for any devices used at the point-of-care, the MS337H’s antimicrobial housing provides an added safeguard against the proliferation and spread of germs.
