In patient care and medical research patient data often has to be transferred between different electronic systems. These systems can be very heterogeneous, sometimes even legacy systems, and thus, often do not support standardized interfaces for data transfer. Since nowadays barcode scanners are commonly used in clinical routine and smartphones are accessible to most patients, we implemented different interfaces based on Data Matrix codes to transfer patient data between several medical applications. Objective of this work is to show different use cases in which Data Matrix codes have been successfully applied and discuss the lessons we have learned during the process of implementation and practical usage.

The transferring of patient care responsibility from one health-care professional to another.
Learned expectation that one's responses are independent of reward and, hence, do not predict or control the occurrence of rewards. Learned helplessness derives from a history, experimentally induced or naturally occurring, of having received punishment/aversive stimulation regardless of responses made. Such circumstances result in an impaired ability to learn. Used for human or animal populations. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)
Moving or bringing something from a lower level to a higher one. The concept encompasses biomechanic stresses resulting from work done in transferring objects from one plane to another as well as the effects of varying techniques of patient handling and transfer.
The application of scientific knowledge or technology to the field of radiology. The applications center mostly around x-ray or radioisotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes but the technological applications of any radiation or radiologic procedure is within the scope of radiologic technology.
