Microsoft Tags – Medical Quack Bar Codes Bar Codes for FDA Recalls-Good Idea?  Search this blog with keywords barcodes or Microsoft Tags-Tons of posts where it could have helped!  There is no bigger poster child than Johnson and Johnson and actually through some folks I know, the idea has been floated up there a while back.  I have added many other posts and will try to update the links here on bar codes and healthcare, Microsoft Tags so past postings are easier to find.  I’ll come back here and add more when I have time as I think I have about 60 or so articles on the Medical Quack!  Many of the links have videos so check them out.  Below you can read a special feature from May of 2011 where I discussed their use both with devices and drugs.
