App tracks HME, meds, home care visits

Tuesday, October 8, 2013

BOSTON – Skycore LLC, developer of codeREADr, has unveiled an app designed to securely track HME, medications and home care visits, the company announced Oct. 8. On display at Medtrade, the app uses NFC-enabled smartphones and tablets to read unique ID (UID), simultaneously recording the location and capture type. “When authenticating an NFC tag’s UID and capture type, service providers know the captured ID wasn’t from a fraudulent source, such as a copied barcode, or manually input by the app user,” said Rich Eicher, CEO of Skycore, in a prepared statement. Caregivers, auditors and technicians can capture data in the field and process it on cloud-based or local servers, Eicher said in the release.
