NDC Translator - Software that enables any barcode scanner to produce the 11-digit NDC number from the actual medication barcode.
Since using NDC Translator, we have noticed a large improvement in the standardization of NDC codes in our current bedside solution. We also use RoboCheck to improve the efficiency of checking and to reduce errors in items being dispensed to the floor.
In a hospital pharmacy setting, drug databases are essential. However, creating hospital drug databases is a high maintenance and endless project. With the NDC Translator®, hospital pharmacies can drastically reduce their drug database workload by virtually eliminating the process of barcode association files. The NDC Translator software is simple, inexpensive and easy to integrate into your hospital’s existing workflow. This patented technology is used in hospitals and retail pharmacies across the country.
NDC Translator software scans a barcode and provides users with the actual 11-digit NDC number of the medication. The Translator interprets, parses and converts the data in the barcode to the 11-digit NDC number. This technology works seamlessly with any application, eliminating the need for maintaining drug dictionaries and barcode linking files.
