Read ideas that will spark your own creative ideas!

Here are just a few ways the worldwide healthcare industry relies on Medical barcode labels for accuracy, efficiency, and durability. We hope these examples spark ideas on how YOUR organization can use Medical barcode labels throughout your facility.

  1. Track assets throughout your organization – While many of the assets in your organization stay put, many have wheels and “travel” throughout your facility! Medical barcode labels, QR code labels, and DataMatrix labels (aka GS1, UID, UDI) help you track all types of medical equipment from surgical kits to beds – as well as the location of critical diagnostic machines on wheels. Labels used for asset tracking are often referred to as inventory barcodes, metal barcode labels, and barcode asset tags. All have the option of variable data such as unique barcodes and QR codes as well as serial numbering.
  2. If you manufacture Medical equipment, date tracking is required – Barcode labels from NFI Corp enable you to comply with the new legal requirements for date tracking of manufactured equipment.
  3. Apply “tamper-proof” Medical barcode labels to the equipment you manufacture – Consider this scenario: Your organization has high traffic and many physical assets. Custom tamper-evident labels can indicate if that equipment has been disturbed. Here’s another scenario: Your company manufactures biometric, clinical, or diagnostic equipment with strict warranty requirements. Tamper-proof labels can clearly reveal when someone inappropriately meddles with the device. With custom tamper-evident labels from NFI Corp, you’ll have proof and protection for inventory tracking, warranties, and a host of other critical applications.
  4. Use QR code labels for marketing and educational purposes – How can you use QR codes in your marketing campaigns and for patient education? There’s virtually no limit to the creative ideas! Here’s one example: Place a QR code label on your printed marketing collateral or patient forms. The code can contain a link to educational videos that explain complicated healthcare topics to patients and caregivers.
