BeepCheck: Check it Twice!

By: Khan

BeepCheck is a smartphone app that serves as an inexpensive alternative to hospital barcode scanners. Using the camera on the smartphone, BeepCheck can read the barcode on both the wristband of the patient and medicine, to verify whether the medication a patient is about to be given, is correct. BeepCheck can also allow family members to participate in the recovery of their loved one by downloading BeepCheck on to their own phones and verifying whether the medicine being provided is correct.
