Great cooperation with Opticon’s Development department
The opta data group is the leading provider of IT, billing and services in the healthcare sector. The opta data group’s almost 60,000 customers include care services, providers of remedies, aid providers, rescue services, taxi/ rental car companies, rehabilitation facilities, midwives, aid organisations from the social sector, doctors and hospitals.
Opticon and opta data IT Solutions GmbH have a long-standing and very successful business relationship.
With the introduction of the MDR (Medical Device Regulation) conversion in 2021, opta data was looking for a scanner that has the ability to read data matrix codes. This form of codes have become necessary as part of the implementation of the MDR.
opta data had previously used the Opticon OPL-9815 as a 1D barcode reader for inventory solutions. Due to the high reliability and simple operation of the scanners, it was obvious to rely on Opticon again for the expansion and it was decided to use the 2D-barcode reader and mobile computer H-31.
The online features of this computer series give opta data numerous opportunities to open up new ways of mobile data collection for its customers.

“With the H-31, we wanted to create a solution that works online without having to programme a stand-alone app for it and immediately acts live in the data stock and can thus do without synchronisation.
Opticon stands for functionality and adaptability. The quick adaptability of the development department to find a solution in order to be able to work target-oriented with the product was very helpful.”
Volker Hahn, Fachreferent Bereich Hilfsmittel of opta data IT Solutions GmbH
opta data decided to use a remote desktop connection instead of a stand-alone app. The existing application was scaled to the size of the mobile computer and optimised for mobile use. A direct connection to the customer server can be established via this connection. This includes, among other things, goods receipt, goods issue, order picking or stocktaking.
The project was successfully implemented through joint work with the Opticon development department and opta data.
opta data introduced this solution to its customers in the healthcare sector and other service providers as part of the MDR roll out and has since been successfully used in medical supply stores, orthopaedic and medical technology companies.
