Combining electronic medical record (EMR) management and effective print management can often seem impossible. More of a pipedream than a reality, healthcare professionals have long since accepted the difficulties that come with printing in their environments. Because while EMR systems like Epic or Meditech are undoubtedly incredibly valuable tools when it comes to accessing, updating and maintaining medical records, they are also known for turning basic print management into a nightmare. So many rigorous demands and strict protocols are placed on print environments, that even meetings all of the hardware and software standards is no guarantee of a stress free print management process. Here’s how we can tackle EMR printing problems.
In partnership with PrinterLogic, Tipac are able to provide tailored print management solutions specifically designed to tackle the unique problems of healthcare and EMR systems printing. Never again will you have to settle for an out of the box solution that doesn’t quite fit. Instead, watch those fundamental problems disappear and your print environment start to run seamlessly.
Curing Healthcare Pains
While the healthcare professionals work on healing their patients, we like to think of our services are their IT healthcare – curing the niggling pains and chronic headaches that can be just too complicated to see clearly. In the cases of both Epic and Meditech, the solutions provided by Tipac and partners can revolutionise the way their printer infrastructure is managed. PrinterLogic explain that;
“PrinterLogic provides a next-generation EMR print management solution that is uniquely suited to solving the fundamental printing problems with EMR systems. Let’s start by looking at Epic printing. In a typical Epic printing environment, each Epic print server (EPS) requires manual intervention when adding, changing or removing printers. This means that a single change for, say, one model of printer has to be repeated for every single EPS – and commonly for every single instance of that printer model on that EPS. Not only is that style of management incredibly tedious, the manual repetition opens the door for typos, oversights and human error. These simple mistakes could prove costly. It’s a painfully inefficient and potentially problematic approach to EMR print management.
With PrinterLogic as your Epic printing solution, you immediately have access to centralized management and automatic propagation of changes. Our solution’s web-based management portal allows you to administer your entire print environment—no matter how distributed—from a single pane of glass, and any changes you make can be instantly synchronized across any number of EPSs throughout your organization. That saves time and reduces the likelihood of mistakes, as OhioHealth discovered when simplifying its Epic printing environment by deploying PrinterLogic’s print management software.
But PrinterLogic’s EMR print management solution is capable of even more than that in an Epic printing environment. Our solution enabled a large integrated healthcare delivery system organization like Guthrie to begin eliminating its print servers altogether. And by eliminating their Windows print servers, PrinterLogic eliminated their costs of purchase, operation and maintenance – not to mention their single points of failure. PrinterLogic is equally effective with MEDITECH printing.”
Implementing a solution like those provided by Tipac and PrinterLogic within your EMR printing environment is your road to a much easier life. Our solutions take the complexity and chaos out of EMR print management at every level, no matter what the size of the organisation, allowing you to offer a higher standard of administrative care.
