A qr-code reader. has to be downloaded and installed on the device.  The are different apps for different devices.  I am not aware of anything that can be dynamically installed without the user taking specific action.

This is where user can download the app for iphone:

https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/qr-code-reader-and-scanner/id388175979?mt=8

Interfacing to send it back to your database would require a second piece which you might find by looking through the long list of iphone apps.

You cannot call the qr-reader with php, the user would have to initiate the action.  The output should be available in the reader's API. You would have to look at the technical documentation of the reader to determine what is available to a browser. Once the browser has captured the data, it could be put it into a form and submit to the server, or you could send it across with AJAX perhaps.

I would expect it to be in the documentation for the reader, but it might be easier to get what you need from: https://getsatisfaction.com/biginjapaninc  Which appears to be the only support offered by the app authors.
