Goals of the customer with the Docutain SDK


Mediteo wants to replace the previous barcode scanner solution in its app. Users can scan the barcodes of their medications on the medication packaging and the federal medication plan to manage this information in the mediteo app.



A high-quality barcode scanner solution for Android and iOS that recognizes barcodes and reliably reads barcodes even in low-light conditions with low-end devices. In addition, it must be able to read multiple barcode types (PZN, PPN, Data Matrix), including drug barcodes from countries such as France and Italy. The barcode scanner must work locally on the user's device.



With the integration of the Docutain Barcode Scanner SDK, mediteo users can scan 1D & 2D barcodes such as the PZN (Pharmazentralnummer) or the international PPN (Pharmacy Product Number) of medication packagings and the Data Matrix of the Federal Uniform Medication Plan. The scanned information on the medications can thus be managed securely in mediteo. Scanning is quick and easy for the user and reliably produces the desired result even in poor light.


High recognition rate, great communication

SDK customer Katharina Knott

"The Docutain Barcode Scanner SDK convinced us during testing with its speed and high recognition rate. The communication during the integration was very fast and reliable and the support was able to respond flexibly to our requirements."

Chief Operating Officer Mediteo GmbH

The goal: Helping users manage their medications

To support the intake and management of medications in the patient's daily routine, the medication can be searched for in the database in the mediteo app. It is even faster to scan the PZN code of the drug package or the data matrix code for a national medication plan with the Docutain Barcode Scanner integrated in mediteo. Important here: Users must be able to quickly and easily add medications in the app without manual intervention. Based on this, a personal intake plan can be created in the app to remind users of their intake, provide an overview of the tablet supply, and also create a medical diary to check measured values.

In this way, mediteo makes a valuable contribution to supporting medication management and relies on the Docutain Barcode Scanner SDK.
