Last week I posted about some bar-coding troubles we were having.Â One of the comments regarding the information in the post was left by a pharmacist named Max Peoples. Max offered up some great information and mentioned a piece of software calledÂ NDC Translator from RxScan.
From Max’s comment: â€œOne answer to the medication NDC # barcode scanning problem is to use the software called NDC Translator(TM) with your barcode scanners. Information at http://www.rxscan.com/rx.shtml
It intercepts the raw data coming from the barcode scanner, evaluates itâ€™s content and if it contains the 10 digit NDC # (required to be there by law in a medication barcode) it converts the raw data into the 11 digit NDC # format and then sends the 11 digit NDC over to the application you are scanning into, in this case Jerryâ€™s barcode labeling software.â€
