Zebra Technologies Introduces New UDI Scanning Application for Improved Patient Safety

Application helps providers improve tracking of implantable devices

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., – March 5, 2020 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), an innovator at the edge of the enterprise with solutions and partners that enable businesses to gain a performance edge, today introduced its new unique device identifier (UDI) scanning application, UDI Scan+ ™, equipping healthcare providers with the performance edge they need to realize the benefits associated with medical device traceability.  

As a result of recent legislation, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Commission, the International Medical Device Regulatory Forum (IMDRF) and the Joint Commission have defined and adopted UDI standards to help enable complete traceability of all individual medical devices used in patient care. UDI Scan+ configures barcode scanners to identify, decode and parse UDI information to an electronic health records (EHR) application, helping ensure improved patient safety and allowing providers to better track implantable devices.  Zebra’s new UDI scanning application can capture information contained in 1D and 2D barcodes and transmit only the data required, eliminating the need for manual entry of information which can lead to potential mistakes in patient care.

UDI Scan+ is programmable within Zebra’s 123Scan barcode scanning software, which is part of DataCapture DNA™, Zebra’s suite of productivity, application development and visibility tools that simplify the integration, deployment and management of Zebra barcode scanners and lower the total cost of ownership.
