Code, an innovator in healthcare automation and mobile technology, is excited to recognize Novant Health’s commitment to improved mobile healthcare scanning with the implementation of Code’s scanning solution CortexDecoder for Epic Rover. Serving communities across the Southeast, Novant Health is a multi-state integrated network of physician clinics, outpatient centers and hospitals that delivers a seamless healthcare experience to its community members. The Novant Health network consists of nearly 30,000 team members who provide care at 640 locations, including 15 medical centers and hundreds of outpatient facilities and physicians clinics.

Code’s CortexDecoder is a software-based barcode scanning solution that was chosen for integration into Epic Rover because it provides users enterprise-grade, barcode scanning strength - using only the camera on an iOS device. CortexDecoder can scan over 40 different barcode symbologies, allowing healthcare workers to seamlessly move from one workflow to another.

Novant is seeing excellent acceptance and integration of the technology. Software-enabled barcode scanning of patient wristbands to access medical records coupled with the ability to scan and verify medications helps to significantly reduce errors and improve patient safety - making soft-scanning a huge win for both the medical staff and their patients.

According to Jill McKinney, Novant Health Director of Clinical Informatics, "Using the mobile devices to scan and administer medication has been 'life changing’." She reports that staff members are thrilled with the ease of use and effectiveness provided by the CortexDecoder.

"We are excited to join forces with Novant Health in improving healthcare in the Southeast," said Garrett Russell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Code. "The healthcare industry has been waiting for the next 'big thing’ and combining CortexDecoder with Epic Rover is it. This is a huge step for the industry, and Novant Health is a leader in the movement for this mobility revolution."
