Ricoh Demonstrating Solutions for Paperless Healthcare at e-Health 2013
Conference and Exhibition
MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Ricoh Canada, a leading technology
provider in advanced document management solutions and services, is
demonstrating a broad array of powerful healthcare solutions at e-Health 2013
Conference and Exhibition. In keeping with the conference theme of
"Accelerating Change", Ricoh's Healthcare solution set is designed to help
healthcare organizations take advantage of EHR investments and make rapid
progress along the "Paperless Maturity Roadmap."
Conceived by Ricoh's healthcare working group (booth #1300), the "Paperless
Maturity Roadmap" helps providers visualize how the strategic reduction of
paper and related paper-based systems can help address the operational
inefficiencies that present some of the most critical challenges in healthcare
today. Progress toward a paperless state can yield better efficiencies,
reduced costs and valuable improvements in operational measures. A client's
current healthcare information infrastructure determines their maturity stage
within the framework and suggests product/service combinations that can help
them achieve deeper improvements.
One of the solutions that Ricoh will be demonstrating permits healthcare
providers to easily attach loose sheet documents securely, accurately and
effortlessly to a patient record in real time. Providers would be able to scan
the documents on a workgroup MFP and use the software to convert as well as
receive and send the electronic data in HL7-CDA, the standard language for
exchange of healthcare industry information. The software would then attach
the documents to the correct patient record. A prototype of this innovative
software solution has been ported to operate on a dedicated Ricoh MFP.
Conference attendees can view the prototype at the Ricoh booth #1300.
Under the banner "Process Optimized. Healthcare Simplified," Ricoh will also
be demonstrating interoperable solutions for:
-- Advanced clinical and administrative document capture
-- Enterprise forms management
-- Enterprise content management
-- Enterprise output management
Visitors to the Ricoh booth will also have the opportunity to see Ricoh's
healthcare optimized Multifunctional Printers, and to speak with healthcare
related Managed Document Services (MDS) subject matter experts.
"All healthcare providers are on a journey toward a paperless environment,
though no two are at the same place along the path," said Eric Fletcher, Vice
President of Marketing at Ricoh Canada. "Our solutions can help any provider
improve efficiency, advance their EHR agenda, and measurably improve
organizational performance. In many cases we have recovered significant cost
savings for our healthcare business partners that they have in turn been able
to re-invest in other patient care related projects. This is especially
beneficial in the current economic climate where costs are rising, demand is
growing and budgets are remaining flat."
