MELVILLE, N.Y. - Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced that its Enterprise Managed Services Division has introduced enhancements to its Healthcare Information Management (IM) plan and launched a Healthcare Advisory Team, focused on advancing enterprise print and scan platforms throughout the healthcare industry. The new team was additionally developed to deliver industry research and best practices related to print, document management technology, and workflow optimization to its healthcare clients.
As the healthcare industry continues to experience unprecedented changes, new technologies and innovations abound to help improve processes, drive standardization, and reduce human error. A critical piece of these changes is the ever-evolving ways in which healthcare leaders are addressing electronic health records (EHR) and system interoperability. Understanding the need to help its clients adapt to these changes, Canon Solutions America's Healthcare Advisory Team, led by Senior Director Rick Ranft, has put in place strategic offerings and collateral to educate the healthcare industry on the imperative of integrating print and scan architecture.
"As on-ramps and off-ramps to provider information and workflows, print, copy, fax and scan play a critical role in the success or failure of an IM plan and its ability to enable provider staff in effective patient care," says Valerie Belli, vice president of the Enterprise Managed Services Division at Canon Solutions America. "The challenge is in not recognizing this dependence and therefore not incorporating this architecture as part of the system's IM Plan," added Belli.
Noted by the company as a key component of healthcare IM, Canon Solutions America has recently developed significant updates to its overall print and scan program that include the establishment of fully standardized technology and workflows coupled with services that can be delivered directly by its Enterprise Managed Services Division's Healthcare Advisory Team. The Team has put equal focus into identifying ways in which a high performing print program can bolster security and help reduce organizational risk.
According to Canon Solutions America's newest group, combining a strong print and scan strategy with EHR implementation to improve print project outcomes is now a critical business element throughout the healthcare industry. As noted in their findings, a comprehensive print and scan strategy can be an outlet for organizations to redefine enterprise business solutions, while simultaneously helping to lower costs, establish security, and support cost-saving initiatives. Canon Solutions America and its Healthcare Advisory Team are positioned to accelerate the advancement of the healthcare industry through primary research, benchmarking of healthcare providers, and an unwavering commitment to provide the best available print-related strategies and technology.
"This is an exciting yet challenging time to be in the healthcare industry, and we look forward to helping it grow and prosper for many years to come," added Scott Briggs, senior manager of the Enterprise Managed Services Division and its Healthcare Team leader. "We are always researching ways in which we can provide substantive and integral information that can yield sustained success for our valued healthcare customers."
