Originally meant for products specifically shipped to hospitals, the HIBC (Health Industry Bar Code) barcode labeling standard quickly grew to encompass a wide array of relevant medical and heath industries and their respective products. Its ease and effectiveness as far as reducing human error and helping to cut down on tracking, labeling and logistical costs, has gained the HIBC standard labeling accreditation and adoption by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the European Committee for Standardization (CEN). Revolutionary in its ability to capture data regarding a wide variety of information pertaining to health care, the HIBC label standard can even be used to specify employees, patient records, purchase orders, and procedures.
The Health Industry Business Communications Council (HIBCC) began implementing Auto-ID/bar code labeling standards in the early 1980’s. Designed to create safer practices and help health care professionals adhere to tighter patient-oriented guidelines and regulations, this particular barcode standard is supported globally.
The Manatee Works Barcode Scanner Parser Plugin makes it easier than ever to extract the necessary data from the HIBC labeler identification codes. Providing immediate details regarding such information as product identification, packaging unit, quantity, lot and expiration data, for example, this plugin effectively reduces the amount of work a developer would otherwise be forced to do parsing through raw bytes of Data Matrix decoded results.
The Parser Plugin for HIBC makes the process of sorting through and parsing important details relative to health and medical-based products faster, more efficient, and more affordable. Given the stringent regulations and mandates inherent to this particular industry, we have created software that adheres to all necessary requirements while significantly streamlining the level of effort.
Developing practical applications is challenging. That’s why we've developed a straight-forward barcode scanner software development kit (SDK) that boasts the most powerful scanning experience available for integration. It offers developers a simple, flexible, dynamic decoding experience, while still allowing for maximum control and flexibility over the user experience (UX). The Manatee Works Barcode Scanner SDK was built BY developers FOR developers... with the goal of making all your applications practical.
As a tool developed with the retail, manufacturing, government, healthcare, commercial services, and transportation industries in mind, our scanning solutions are built around efficiency for the end-user, as well as simplicity for the application developer. We understand that the enterprise is continually looking for opportunities to increase efficiency. Therefore, we have developed the ultimate single-handed scanning solution aimed at maximizing every promise of a return on investment.
