New legislation and rising costs are forcing healthcare (medical and dental) practices of all sizes to find ways of becoming more efficient and profitable without sacrificing patient care.
The Challenges for Healthcare
Improving security and patient privacy
Maintaining the security of patient information is a steady source of concern for this industry. An organization’s data security can be compromised intentionally or by accident. Proactive safeguarding measures don’t just make good business sense, they are a legal requirement (HITECH, HIPAA).

Strategic cost management
Providers are under increasing pressure to reduce costs while maintaining the highest level of patient service and care. Managed print, document, and network services can help increase productivity while managing costs.
Improving workflow efficiency
The industry now produces more patient-relevant documentation than ever. Office technologies can be leveraged to streamline the admission and discharge process, document distribution, and create a more productive healthcare facility.
Keeping your network secure
Because providers handle sensitive, personal information, they make inviting targets for hackers and malicious software programs. If a healthcare provider does not adequately control how and where their staff accesses their network, the possibility of a security issue remains constant.
Providing mobile access and printing
As providers of all types integrate mobile devices into their workflow, access to the proper technologies can expedite the document management process.
As one of the largest 24/7 industries, healthcare is uniquely positioned to promote environmentally conscious behavior. Office technologies are a significant place to begin making an impact.
