Griffin Unveils Olli, an iPod touch Case with Built-in Optical Barcode and Magnetic Card Reader, Optimized for Healthcare

First Look at Olli Available at HIMSS13 in New Orleans, Booth #957 (Ernest N. Morial Convention Center)
Nashville, TN – March 4, 2013 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, will be providing a first look at Olli to HIMSS13 conference attendees next week. Olli is a sleek, multi-purpose mobile platform that combines a handheld 1D & 2D barcode and magnetic strip reader with a case for the iPod touch (5th Generation).
“Olli puts the familiar iOS interface to work for the healthcare industry,” says J. Curtis, Griffin’s Director of B2B Product Development. “Designed to eliminate inefficiencies and errors and take patient care to the next level, Olli allows nurses and doctors alike access to medical history, med schedules, drug interactions, insurance information, and anything that is immediate and pertinent to patient care.”
Engineered as a protective case for iPod touch (5th Generation), Olli is made of a nonporous material with an integrated touch-through screen shield. Olli completely encloses the device within a surface that is fully sanitizeable using industry-standard cleaning and sterilization products.
Combined with Apple’s iOS application platform, Olli brings patient information out from behind the administration desk or nurse’s station, and puts it in a handheld, multi-purpose mobile device that can be used at the patient’s bedside. Olli’s functionality is supported by a simple software development kit and can be made to work with any EMR, medicine administration and inventory management system for scalable, custom solutions.
Olli, $499, will be available June 2013. A 6-bay charge and storage stand, $149, will also be available June 2013. A selection of Griffin’s Business Solutions conducive for healthcare will be on display at HIMSS13 taking place March 3-7, 2013 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (Booth #957).
