Scanning Product Barcodes for the Canadian Joint Replacement Registry
This bulletin outlines the steps for capturing implant and cement information from product stickers using barcode scanners. Since product stickers are not standardized across and even within manufacturers, providers must take care to ensure that the correct barcode is scanned and that information appears in the appropriate data field (i.e., Product Number versus Lot Number). All samples of product stickers provided in this bulletin are fictitious yet resemble actual product stickers from a variety of manufacturers.
