SATO brings new mobile printer to market
CHARLOTTE, NC – SATO America, which calls itself a leader in barcode printing, labeling and EPC/RFID solutions introduced a new mobile printer, the MB200i. The MB200i is designed to speed up the mobile printing market by delivering higher performance, durability, and mobility.
With a high-speed, 32-bit CPU for high throughput printing speeds of up to 4 inches per second, the MB200i is the fastest in its class, according to SATO officials.
It has a maximum roll diameter of 2.6 inches, which allows for less roll changes and less downtime, an outer construction made of polycarbonate and a shock-absorbing mechanism to withstand heavy impact for added durability, as well as a smooth-edged, ergonomically modular design that fits snugly in a user’s hand.
The onboard mobile processor automatically reduces power consumption by shutting down any unneeded or idle on-chip circuitry and doubling operation time per battery charge as compared to some competitive models.
Bluetooth and 802.11b wireless Ethernet connectivity are also available as optional, factory-installed interface modules. The Wireless Ethernet module is compliant with IEEE802.11b standards.
Also, there is support for 64/128bit WEP and WPA (WPA-PSK) data encryption. The MB200i wireless module is equipped with an LCD screen to enable easy monitoring of the wireless network signal strength and printer operation status.
Enclarity offers new NPI software
ALISO VIEJO, CA – Healthcare providers face a national mandate to adopt one National Provider Identifier (NPI) for each healthcare provider. To help providers comply with NPI requirements and avoid potential problems, Enclarity, Inc., an information management and analytic software company focused on the healthcare market, has introduced NPI Enabler software.
NPI is a standard unique health identifier for healthcare providers. It replaces the use of legacy provider identification numbers. The 10-digit identifiers, mandated by The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) beginning May 23, 2007, are intended to simplify communication and administration between providers and health plans.
“The impending NPI requirement will be a huge problem for healthcare organizations whose legacy systems lack accurate and complete provider data,” said Sean Downs, Enclarity’s president and CEO. “Unless they act now to fix this problem and prepare for NPI, compliance issues will become expensive in both money and time.”
