Canon, a Leading Healthcare Solutions Provider, Helps Customers Realize Essential Actions for Healthcare Transformation at HIMSS 2017

MELVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The goal of appropriately access and help protect patient information is top of mind for today's healthcare organizations, as well as Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions. At the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference, taking place February 19 to 23 in Orlando, healthcare providers visiting the Canon booth (#1837) can discover how Canon solutions can assist customers in taking the essential actions needed for transformation while considering information exchange requirements under Meaningful Use. While experiencing the high-quality imaging and productivity enhancing solutions that earned Canon a 2017 Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) PaceSetter award for Healthcare in the Hospital Networks category and learning why the brand was recognized by survey respondents as a top shared printer/MFP brand in hospitals1, visitors can also attend presentations from Canon collaborators, including Box, Inc., to discover solutions that can allow them to easily collaborate with other medical professionals, while helping to enhance patient experience and help practitioners with their continuity of care and compliance goals2.

The flow of patient information continues long after it is digitized, making it imperative for organizations to adopt an information file sharing approach that can help limit access to patient data, and promotes coordination and integration of medical information for continuity of care, enabling healthcare professionals to collaborate and efficiently track and compile a patient's comprehensive health history. With these needs in mind, Canon offers a wide variety of devices and software solutions that can help to effectively manage patient data from the point of digital capture to transmission and storage. Attendees can also see how Canon devices and software solutions can help increase efficiency and contain printing costs in paper-intensive workflow environments, such as medical records, administrative documents, admissions and discharge.

"Healthcare is an industry like no other. Providers face mounting pressures to adapt their practices to rising costs, changing regulatory requirements and other difficulties that challenge healthcare delivery organizations to remain efficient and profitable. And all this while still providing the highest level quality of care," noted Jamie Bsales, director, Office Workflow Solutions Analysis at BLI. "Not only has Canon demonstrated a strong ability to help organizations face mounting pressures to move from paper records to electronic and reduce costs, it has also shown its ability to leverage its imaging technology expertise to offer a host of solutions beyond document imaging and managed services, including digital radiography and ophthalmic equipment."

Security Features2
Healthcare professionals can help limit access to data of capture with the access-controlled scanning and printing capabilities of uniFLOW when used in combination with Canon imageFORMULA scanners, as well as imageRUNNER ADVANCE and imageCLASS multifunction systems (MFPs). Upon authenticating at a Canon devices,  healthcare providers can automatically capture and  route files to information management and workflow solutions, such as Therefore™ and third party systems, allowing them manage and view changes to electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) in an access controlled, traceable manner. Care providers can also utilize this access controlled exchange of information with third-parties via a variety of Canon solutions capable of integrating with Box™ content collaboration platform to allow the sharing of DICOM® clinical images, billing information and other vital data outside of their organization.

Interoperability with EHR Integration
With the Canon solutions portfolio, medical professionals are able to share patient information across the continuum of care utilizing a variety of security features. Whether from the point of care or within various hospital departments, healthcare professionals can utilize Canon solutions, such as the Canon uniFLOW Connector for OnBase™, to facilitate the seamless transmission of patient medical records. This solution integrates with widely used healthcare information systems, including Epic, Allscripts, Cerner and McKesson.

For healthcare organizations looking to transform existing patient records into digital records to help improve efficiency, access to medical files and facilitate key aspects of compliance2 efforts relative to managing patient records, Digital Conversion Services for Healthcare offered by Canon Information and Imaging Solutions (CIIS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., can assist healthcare organizations with this labor intensive task.

Print Management
To assist paper-intensive environments, such as medical records, administration, admissions and pharmacies, Canon works with leading healthcare systems providers to help organizations efficiently and effectively print the documents they need. Canon Managed Document Services (MDS) offers healthcare organizations a unified offering for total output and document solutions management, consisting of a complete, customized program, specific to its unique business needs. Healthcare organizations concerned with analyzing and reducing print costs can also utilize uniFLOW's print tracking and analytics capabilities to help them identify inefficiencies.
