Healthcare Fraud

The medical device market is moving towards barcode scanning. According to Gayle S. Putric of Plastics News, this move is due to “demands for improved identification and tracking of surgical instruments and devices.” This transition makes sense considering that this market is a $110 billion dollar industry and is predicted to reach $133 billion by 2016. The question is with such high dollars at stake, why hasn’t this started sooner? As ID scanning technology continues to advance and increase ubiquity, more agencies and businesses are making it a requirement as part of their operational practices.

 

Different government sectors such as the Food and Drug Administration are going to start requiring barcode tracking to streamline efficiency, prevent fraud and minimize loss. The importance of scanning technology can be seen in several examples across the U.S. In one case, a person committed $500,000 worth of fraud using an invalid ID. Major costs can be saved with small steps by implementing scanning technology.

Technology Wards off Unwanted Visitors in Schools

Sex offenders? Not, in Woburn, Massachusetts. According to Daily Times Chronicle: Woburn, The Woburn School Board is taking extra precautions in preventing unwanted visitors on the school ground of Joyce Middle School. Eventually, the board plans to expand these security measures to all elementary schools in its district. What exactly is it that the schools in MA are doing to secure their school grounds? They are using ID scanning technology that scans a person’s driver’s license or any government issued ID. Once the ID is scanned, it is run against a database that screens for sex offenders and can also tag whether someone is a known gang member, in a custody battle, etc.

 

What is it that has prompted Woburn, Massachusetts and thousands of other schools throughout the country to take such action? This is probably due to the increase in violence in schools throughout the U.S. According to the CDC, 749,200 violent victimizations occurred at school in 2012. The numbers have only increased since then. While not all of this violence was induced from outside visitors, anyone trying to protect their school environment should take heed to the necessity of increasing school safety.

 

The National Crime Prevention Council suggests having a policy of “positive identification” using items such as badges to identify a permitted visitor. The technology that scans a person’s ID may be paired with a visitor badge that can be customized to identify what sort of visitor they are and how long their visit should last. This helps in the monitoring of visitor traffic and preventing unwanted incidents.

 

Whether you want to run background checks on visitors, is up to you, but at the very least, with the increase in litigiousness in the U.S., it is important that you protect yourself and your school. The knowledge that one would have to present their ID, minimizes the likeliness of them to commit a crime on campus.

Nation Wide Crackdown on Underage Drinking

With the arrival of summer, states across the nation are taking precautionary measures to crackdown on underage drinking. One of several examples can be seen in Washington’s youth access compliance check program.

The Washington State Liquor Board has initiated a program to help prevent minors from drinking. They have selected a particularly interesting approach through employing the assistance of 18-21 year olds. The WSLCB refers to this demographic assisting them as “IA”s- Investigative Aides. They plant the IA’s throughout local bars to see how the bartender or bouncers respond to their  ID’s.

While this approach lauds creativity, why not use an ID scanner and parsing system that is 100% fool proof? IDScan.net has the most up to date technology in ID scanning.
