Barcode Scannable Case list

Hi There,

I read a thread some time ago about another project that was able to set u
the case list to search for cases by scanning a barcode. I want to
implement that for a patient record system that I am working on and was
wondering if anyone can give me more details on how to set that up or even
set up a small Skype meeting to talk me through setting it up?

kindly,
Ameera

Hi Ameera,

The default behavior for using barcode scanning in the case list is
relatively straightforward. After you scan the QR code and your scanner
application determines the string that it encodes, CommCare simply this
string into the search box as if you’d entered the text directly. So if the
barcode encodes for example the patient ID number, and assuming this number
is successfully associated with that case (IE by scanning the barcode in
the case creation form and saving this property), then you only need to
make this case property a searchable property to make this work. Hope
that’s all clear!

Best,
Will

Hi William,

I know this function is not supported on Cloudcare because it requires a QR
code scanner, but we are using Chromebooks in the clinic, which do support
QR code reading apps. Is it possible then to somehow use the chromebooks
camera to scan the barcode? and how would I enable that in Cloudcare?

Kindly,
Ameera

Hi Ameera,

CloudCare does not currently support multimedia either (IE image, video,
audio uploading) and so unfortunately this is not possible either. At the
moment, Cloudcare has no way to “hook into” the hardware of your computer
in the way that EG CommCare Android can access the microphone or camera.
We do have plans to add this functionality in the future, but not in the
short term unfortunately.

Best,
Will

You might be able to buy a USB scanner that works just like a keyboard,
making it quick to enter the data into the search box on CloudCare.
