Medscan

Medscan is a portable recording system for paramedics that records and transports data in real time to use during a call and when restocking the medical bag. It delivers the benefits of medicine flow efficiency reporting, through automated, real-time data analytics. The scanning device is placed in the interior of a medical bag, each medication administrated to a patient during a call-out is recorded automatically using the Medscan device. All data is analysed automatically and reports are generated for the paramedics’ records. Medscan records a live stock of medicine in the medical bag so paramedics can see which items are low in stock and need to be replaced. When restocking, paramedics can retrieve the real-time updates on the Medscan software, showing what medicine was removed and who was responsible for that bag. The Medscan device is charged during each re-stock so it is ready for the next emergency call.
