EHR Barcode Reader
Quickly scan medication & immunization patient data for improved EHR workflow.
The Next Level of Vaccine and MedAdmin Management.
EHR Barcode Reader is an add-on application that streamlines the administration of immunizations and medications for users of Allscripts® TouchWorks™ EHR or NextGen® Enterprise EHR. Utilizing 2D barcode reader technology, this application instantly collects medication or vaccine data and populates key fields in your EHR including NDC, lot and expiration date.
With regulations like the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) that mandates documentation of vaccine product identification and lot number, a tool like EHR Barcode Reader will save time, reduce unnecessary keystrokes, and eliminate costly data entry errors. EHR Barcode Reader will free up your clinical staff to focus on your value-based care goal.

Deliver COVID-19 Vaccines Faster & Safer
Due to the expedited vaccine approval process, full barcodes were not supplied for the Covid-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. In turn, this has reduced the anticipated capacity of healthcare facilities to administer the vaccines due to the reliance on manual entry. In response, we have created new workarounds and solutions to speed up workflow and correct reporting issues.
Our customizable vaccine creator with barcode generator accommodates the traditional EHR Barcode Reader workflows- so our clients can go back to scanning instead of manual entry. Quick and accurate capturing of the NDC, lot, manufacturer and expiration date is allowing our clinics to deliver the vaccine to more patients daily.
We recently installed EHR Barcode Reader at a clinic in Florida. Pre-installation, they were achieving a vaccination rate of 95 patients per day. After implementing our EHR Barcode Reader and making some adjustments in workflow, they were able to increase their vaccination rate to over 400 people per day with 0 waste.
Accurately Track Your COVID-19 Vaccinations
Use the COVID-19 Bar Code Creator to track vaccine administration quickly and accurately in your EHR. Accurately report on Series 1 administrations to qualify for Series 2 shipments. Updated reporting measures are also in place for CPT codes for billing and enable easy reporting to your state.
When we first opened our Covid-19 vaccination clinic, we were processing 90-100 patients per day utilizing (4) Medical Scribe/RN teams and support from our pharmacy. Since then, we relocated into an improved workspace and made a couple workflow adjustments, then implemented EHR Barcode Reader. With Barcode Reader we’ve significantly reduced manual data entry clicks and streamlined our data collection and billing workflow. We are now consistently processing 450-500 patients per day with the same work crew!”
