Wavelink has signed a distribution partnership with Scandit to provide better working solutions for the healthcare industry.

The Scandit Smart Data Capture platform enables smart devices, such as smartphones or robots, to interact with physical items by capturing data from barcodes, text, and IDs. 

When used in the healthcare industry, Scandit technology allows healthcare professionals and organisations to advance patient safety and improve compliance and staff efficiencies through modernising and digitising operations.

The agreement comes at a time when the healthcare industry is under financial and workforce pressures, and healthcare leaders are seeking ways to improve workflow efficiencies, reduce costs, and boost productivity.

The Scandit Smart Data Capture solutions has the ability to automate workflows, therefore securely speeding up nursing processes.

Healthcare staff using Scandit technology can access and track medical records in real-time by scanning information on patient wristbands, specimens, and medical supplies with unmatched speed, accuracy, and intelligence. 

Scandit's scanning technology can be installed on any smart device, including purpose-built smartphones such as Spectralink Versity devices. Scandit's barcode scanning software can scan up to three times faster than dedicated scanning devices, even in low light, difficult angles, and with damaged labels.

Ilan Rubin, CEO, Wavelink, says the company is excited about the agreement and believes it will make a significant difference to the welfare of patients and staff.

“Wavelink is excited to partner with Scandit for smarter, faster, and more accurate data capture,” he says.

“As the future of healthcare becomes even more digital, a smart data capture platform is essential and will deliver vast workflow improvements to aged care and hospital work. Ultimately, the less time healthcare workers have to spend capturing and managing data, the more time they can spend acting on that data and delivering excellent patient experiences.”

Paul Davis, Vice President of Sales APAC, Scandit, agrees, saying that it will allow for better-working processes and outcomes.

“Healthcare professionals have not spent years in education and training only to become hampered by slow, manual processes or cumbersome, outdated equipment,” he says.

“Adding smart devices equipped with Scandit Smart Data Capture to healthcare workflows empowers and helps to retain staff, while ensuring optimal patient outcomes. It also allows healthcare organisations to demonstrate to employees just how much they value their time and expertise.”

Rubin says the partnership was an easy choice, and the blending of technology is ideal for producing effective outcomes.

“Partnering with Scandit was a clear choice for Wavelink, especially given Scandits seamless integration with the Spectralink Versity smartphones, which Wavelink has distributed for many years,” he says.

“For healthcare workers, scanning hardware needs to do more than just scan. Workers need a consolidated smartphone device, which is what the combination of Scandit and Spectralink Versity helps to achieve.”
