GTIN BARCODES


The GTIN barcode has been a bit of a mystery for several years, and now has become a critical component to your documentation of the Operative Record, as well as Implant & Mechanical tracking, by the Federal Government. We have spent several years getting the programming of scanners and the smooth translation into MEDITECH software. MEDITECH has done an outstanding job ensuring that your Facility will be compliant providing you populate the appropriate information from the GTIN barcodes into your system. Please feel free to reach out to our in-house resident expert Heather Holmes, heather@steveholmesgroup.com. Heather has worked very closely with MEDITECH on several projects to provide a seamless and easy transition to fully utilize this GTIN barcode and achieve maximum Meaningful Use Scores.

NEW IN 2021


MATERIALS MANAGEMENT ANDROID HANDHELD SOFTWARE


The much anticipated release of our new MEDITECH Materials Management handheld software is being released on January 1, 2021. As many of you know as both a customer and a Vendor I have been working with the MM Handhelds for about 30 years, this new release will be on an ANDROID platform. We certainly have come along way over the years, going back to when these handhelds communicated via a DG Terminal Server. The Steve Holmes Group will still support all versions that are actively being utilized across all MEDITECH platforms. We designed the new software to co-exist with your current software making it easier for you to transition onto the new platform gradually as devices fail over time, We are in the process of updating our website under the Materials Management tab, so please check back often to see the latest changes. If you would please mention this to your Materials Management folks as well, they can always reach me at  steve@steveholmesgroup.com
