April 04,2013

 

     Savin is pleased to announce the addition of two new color MFP products, the C230HT and C230HW, to our series of customized models designed to meet the unique needs of the Healthcare market. These healthcare configurations are based on extensive market research and address the top customer pain points identified. Wrapped around the core technologies of Savin MFPs, these customized models provide a competitive advantage to Savin and will accelerate the growth of Savin MFP placements in healthcare.

The following features are available on the Healthcare MFPs:

ID Wristband Printing Insert

     The ID Wristband Insert allows customers to print on media as narrow as 3.25 inches from the main paper tray. Customers implementing this solution
can generate cost-savings by 1)eliminating the need for specialized thermal printers and 2) by using smaller size ID Wristband media.

Teflon Coating

     Teflon tape applied to side fences of paper trays prevent the accumulation of adhesive on the paper tray and allow customers to feed labels smoothly, preventing paper jams.

Teflon Paper Feed Unit

     A Paper Feed Unit which includes Teflon coating is also available for use with both models.

     These MFPs were designed to answer the needs of the Healthcare industry. Admissions Desks, Nurse’s Stations and Doctor’s Offices would benefit greatly from some or all the capabilities listed above. While Healthcare is the primary target industry for these models, this collection of capabilities is beneficial to customers in a broad range of industries like Education which require wristband or label printing.

     Whether you're ready for a full managed print services program, or you are simply looking for more cost effective print alternatives, test drive the Kyocera advantage through our exclusive TCO Tracker. The TCO Tracker compares your current printer's running costs with a comparable Kyocera ECOSYS printer. What makes the TCO Tracker unique is that it is the only printer cost comparison tool in the industry utilizing IDC market data to compare the cost of the printers, including supplies and maintenance kits, based upon your typical monthly print volume.

       Each month, the TCO Tracker cost data is updated with the latest information from IDC, information that is compiled from a broad list of industry resources, including retail web sites and manufacturer-direct web pricing. Only Kyocera's TCO Tracker uses certified third-party pricing data and the data is never modified or altered from IDC's monthly analysis. With just a few simple steps, you can compare the typical "street price" cost of your current printer to the MSRP price of a  Kyocera ECOSYS printer. In nearly every analysis, a Kyocera ECOSYS printer will save you money over the life of the product. And in those few instances where your present printer is a better value, then by all means keep it. But remember: the TCO Tracker utilizes Kyocera's MSRP price versus the typical prices paid for competitive printers.  A quick call to an ABM will provide you the typical price you can expect to pay for an ECOSYS printer, then, compare. We are confident you'll find Kyocera's ECOSYS printers are a great value for your organization!

About 

Electronic 

Medical 

Records

August 25,2010
 
      An electronic medical record is usually a computerized legal medical record created in an organization that delivers care, such as a hospital and doctor's surgery.  Electronic medical records tend to be a part of a local stand-alone health information system that allows storage, retrieval and manipulation of records.  Paper-based records require a significant amount of storage space compared to digital records. In the US, most states require physical records be held for a minimum of seven years.

    The costs of storage media, such as paper and film, per unit of information differ dramatically from that of electronic storage media. When paper records are stored in different locations, collating them to a single location for review by a health care provider is time consuming and complicated, whereas the process can be simplified with electronic records. This is particularly true in the case of person-centred records, which are impractical to maintain if not electronic (thus difficult to centralise or federate). When paper-based records are required in multiple locations, copying, faxing, and transporting costs are significant compared to duplication and transfer of digital records..

     One study estimates electronic medical records improve efficiency by 6% per year, and the monthly cost of an EMR is offset by the cost of only a few unnecessary tests or admissions. Jerome Groopman disputed these results, publicly asking "how such dramatic claims of cost-saving and quality improvement could be true".   Handwritten paper medical records can be associated with poor legibility, which can contribute to medical errors. Pre-printed forms, the standardization of abbreviations, and standards for penmanship were encouraged to improve reliability of paper medical records. Electronic records help with the standardization of forms, terminology and abbreviations, and data input. Digitization of forms facilitates the collection of data for epidemiology and clinical studieS.   In contrast, EMRs can be continuously updated.

    The ability to exchange records between different EMR systems ("interoperability") would facilitate the co-ordination of healthcare delivery in non-affiliated healthcare facilities. In addition, data from an electronic system can be used anonymously for statistical reporting in matters such as quality improvement, resource management and public health communicable disease surveillance.  Even though EMR systems with computerized provider order entry (CPOE) have existed for more than 30 years, fewer than 10 percent of hospitals as of 2006 have a fully integrated system.  In the United States, 38.4% of office-based physicians reported using fully or partially electronic medical record systems (EMR) in 2008. However, the same study found that only 20.4% of all physicians reported using a system described as minimally functional and including the following features: orders for prescriptions, orders for tests, viewing laboratory or imaging results, and clinical notes.

Junk

Drawer


May 24,2010
  Over the past several years small organizations have compiled dozens, medium-sized organizations hundreds, and large organizations thousands of printers, copiers, multifunctional devices, faxes and scanners to produce documents. These same organizations have contracted with courier services to distribute documents and invested in software applications to help manage them. Many also outsource document production and even destruction. As of 2006, Hewlett Packard has placed over 100 million laser printers in North America. Copier manufactures have installed over eight million copiers and multifunctional devices. Even with the surge of attaching documents to e-mail for distribution, faxing documents is still very popular. Two years ago FedEx bought Kinko's™. What does this marriage tell us about the connection between document production and distribution? They are a perfect match. At the time of this writing FedEx® stock is $116 per share reflecting a bullish outlook on corporate America's appetite for outsourcing document production and distribution.  Even with the massive investments and dependence on document technology and related services, the print space in most organizations can be likened to corporate America's junk drawer. Just like the junk drawers in our homes, print spaces are rarely managed effectively and even less rarely cleaned out and reorganized.(Read More)
