Melbourne July 15th, 2012 – Innovations in hospital information management systems and compliance with government regulations have improved patient tracking, safety, and records keeping. Scanners are a vital input device into these systems but are often slow, unreliable and not well-suited to the rigors of hospital environments. The Intermec SG20 Healthcare is built to excel in the hospital, with the industry’s fastest omnidirectional 2D bar code reading technology and more motion tolerance than competing devices. This ensures all common 1D and 2D bar codes are scanned easily and consistently, at any orientation, without time-consuming item repositioning or disturbance to resting patients.
Intermec understands that a “one-size-fits-all” approach to healthcare scanning can limit user efficiency and accuracy, so the SG20 family includes the option of either a Bluetooth wireless or tethered (cabled) scanner, and a choice between high performance scan engines with laser or LED aimers–perfect for patient-facing applications. This makes it possible to standardize on a single scanner family across your healthcare operation while providing just the right model for your exact needs.
The Intermec SG20 can be quickly and easily configured with Intermec’s exclusive EasySet™ PC programming tool. In just a few clicks, this Windows-based utility can print programming bar codes for custom configurations. Adjust security settings, symbologies, beeper tone and volume, LED color – even set up advanced data-editing routines.
