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
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
"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."
