Softcopy QA Management System
BarcoView (Duluth, Ga.) has added new bi-directional functionality to MediCal Administrator, its hospital-based softcopy QA management system. This feature enables administrators to access all medical display systems from their own or other workstations connected to the same network, rather than from each individual station. The software also allows the setting of proactive checks (by means of the automated QA check) to the standards adopted in the medical facility or country from any network-connected workstation.

Spacesaver Corp. (Fort Atkinson, Wis.) is offering a device that limits aisle access in its powered mobile storage systems. TouchPad is compatible and can be retrofitted to most existing Power Assist mobile storage systems as well as the PowerPro system. To gain aisle access, an authorized user enters a four-digit code on the 10-digit keypad on the end of the aisle. Upon leaving the aisle, the user closes the aisle with a “system close” button at the end of the module. This new option will help healthcare facilities meet Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy regulations.
