About EHR Barcode Reader

EHR Barcode Reader is an add-on application that streamlines the administration of immunizations and inventory for users of NextGen Enterprise EHR. Utilizing 2D barcode reader technology, this application instantly collects inventory or vaccine data and populates key fields in your EHR including NDC, lot and expiration date to improve clinical workflow.

The Order completion workflow for immunizations and medications is time-consuming and often results in data entry errors and/or inaccurate data. EHR Barcode Reader saves time and reduces data entry risks by integrating barcode scanning technology directly into your Immunization and MedAdmin Order completion workflow.

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.
