BarTender® Software for Healthcare Labeling

Healthcare providers have a singular mandate to maintain patient safety.  But they also must balance regulatory requirements and, with healthcare operating margins averaging less than 3%, increased pressure for cost control.

Labeling and auto-identification methods, such as barcodes and RFID, can enable the data capture and sharing goals of eHealth and electronic record programs. These technologies provide the link between the patient and today's EHR / EMR, helping healthcare practitioners and facilities meet meaningful use criteria, enabling regulatory compliance, and providing the systems interoperability that increases accuracy and efficiency in patient care and supply chain processes.

BarTender is the heart of your healthcare labeling solution

BarTender® software is deployed at hospitals, pharmacies, labs and clinics around the world, enabling the data capture and tracking that healthcare systems require in today's regulatory and supply chain environments. Use BarTender to create and automate the labeling, barcoding, RFID encoding and plastic card printing that enable information management throughout the healthcare system, including:

  • Pharmaceutical inventory control
  • Hospital pharmacy dispensing
  • Drug repacking
  • Supply chain and asset management
