NEW ORLEANS, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Ricoh U.S. Healthcare today
unveiled at the HIMSS 2013 Annual Conference and Exhibition a suite of
versatile multifunction products (MFPs) and printers engineered specifically
to help healthcare organizations improve outcomes in the face of rising costs,
new legislation, security risks and provider consolidation.

Created after extensive research into unmet customer needs, the Ricoh
Multifunctional Products and Printers for Healthcare – SP 5210DNHW/SP
5210DNHT, SP C431DNHW/SP C431DNHT, SP 5200SHW/SP 5200SHT, and SP 5210SFHW/SP
5210SFHT – offer a range of features to streamline the input, processing and
output of healthcare information.

For example, healthcare organizations can now print patient wristbands from
electronic medical records without the need for expensive single-purpose
thermal printers or extensive configuration. Ricoh's new Multifunctional
Products and Printers for Healthcare provide a simple yet powerful turnkey
solution for wristbands, which today carry an increasing wealth of clinical
information, including barcodes, color-coded alerts, patient photos and more.
The new Ricoh MFPs and printers further reduce cost of wristband production by
deftly handling media as narrow as 3.25 inches, reducing consumption of
expensive wristband stock. Ricoh will be offering demonstrations of wristband
printing at its HIMSS booth #1361.

Other new features

Ricoh's Tray Locks Solution makes it easy to secure sensitive and expensive
forms, such as prescription paper. To reduce device management costs, workers
can use an SD Card as a Portable Print Configuration Module to simply and
efficiently swap out mission-critical devices or replicate system settings
across fleets. New Teflon-coated paper trays easily accommodate specialty
papers and minimize misfeeds for efficient, uninterrupted print runs.

The new devices also help organizations address their HIPAA compliance and
privacy requirements through features such as: Locked Print technology, which
holds documents until an authorized user provides credentials such as a
password; Hard Drive Encryption, which encrypts address books, passwords and
certain data stored on the device; and the DataOverWriteSecuritySystem (DOSS),
which protects valuable information by overwriting digital images on the hard
drive. To optimize information flow, Ricoh healthcare MFP users can scan
records directly to secure email addresses, folders, FTP sites, document
servers and archives.

"This new line of Ricoh devices exemplifies the printer/MFP's growing service
role across the entire continuum of care," said Michael Campana, Senior
Manager, Healthcare Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "It satisfies the
broad-based need for new, innovative business information solutions that
directly address the unique challenges of healthcare information systems'
output in the most cost-effective manner."


The new devices print in the 32-52 ppm range with resolution up to 1200 x 1200
dpi. Each MFP or printer comes standard with a Java VM card that enables
customers to easily add on Ricoh and third-party applications to gain powerful
new capabilities.

The MSRP for each device is as follows: SP 5210DNHW/SP 5210DNHT at
$2,399/$2,199, SP C431DNHW/SP C431DNHT at $2,399/$2,199, SP 5200SHW/SP 5200SHT
at $3,699/$3,499, and SP 5210SFHW/SP 5210SFHT at $4,719/$4,519.
