RVSI receives Order for Barcode Readers

In emergencies, doctors generally lack knowledge of the patient's previous illnesses, use of medication, and allergies or reactions to medication. Vital information is therefore essential to prevent wrong treatment or giving wrong medication. The organization's goal is to make patient case histories available to physicians while fully safeguarding personal data. This is done by encrypting a patient's medical history into a two-dimensional barcode, called Data Matrix, which is contained on a card carried by the patient.
