Information Systems, Data Management, Bar-Code

Definition : Data management information systems based in codes consisting of a group of printed and variously patterned bars and spaces (i.e., bar codes); these codes are designed to be scanned and read into computer systems to identify persons and/or objects. Bar-code information systems are used in healthcare facilities to increase the accuracy and safety of data management, especially in activities where manipulation of patient-related data may represent a high risk for the patient such as administration of medication or blood products, specimen handling for laboratory analysis, and controlled drug inventory in the clinical pharmacy.
