BarScan offers an inexpensive, open-source solution in dealing with a practical problem encountered at hospitals all over the world: that of digitizing patient records. By scanning and subsequently associating patient names with files, BarScan makes patient information retrieval much quicker than what is possible with paper-based methods, as well as taking up less physical space. Currently in testing, once fully implemented it has the potential to save hospitals crucial time and money, and to make patient treatment more efficient.
