Managed Print and Healthcare: A Perfect Match

Sun May 28, 2023 | Base Technologies

The careful management of documents and the information they contain is essential for all enterprises, but none more so than the healthcare industry.

From privacy issues to the attention to detail required to keep patient health records current, the stakes are very high indeed.

In fact, it's not overstating the case to say that, in the healthcare industry, a well-supported technology and print infrastructure can be a matter of life and death.

The Patient's Right to Privacy

Patients trust their healthcare providers with vast amounts of information. From names, addresses and birthdates to social security numbers and financial information, very little is held back.

It stands to reason that healthcare providers will want to do all they can to manage and safeguard the sensitive knowledge their patients trust them to use. Aside from the confidentiality patients expect, the violation of HIPPA laws can result in hefty fines and penalties.

The Inherent Value of Medical Records

Beyond privacy concerns, patients expect that their medical records will be accurate and current. When it comes to healthcare, mistakes can be deadly. Managed Print Services can help those in the industry to better manage this information, from who has access, who it can be shared with, and where it's stored after it's been acquired.

Reduce Risk & Costs With Managed Print

The management, organization and safeguarding of patient files can't be left to chance. According to recent statistics, 35 million printed pages a year is the average amount for a 500-bed facility. Managed Print can help healthcare facilities take control of the enormous amount of patient data that flows through their systems.

  • Increased security protocols on all printing devices.
  • Fleet right-sizing and optimization to increase productivity and streamline workflows.
  • Automated supply reordering to keep costs low and inventories up to par.
  • Remote monitoring of devices to address issues and prevent costly downtimes.
  • Tracking of print jobs to control how devices are used and to cut down on wasteful printing habits.
