CynergisTek Releases White Paper on Strategies to Reduce Persistent Paper Volume in Hospitals

The pioneer in Managed Print Services (MPS) for the health care industry, today announced the release of a white paper for health care executives that examines the historical use of ‘persistent paper’ in hospitals and offers strategies to reduce volume, gain efficiencies, save scarce resources and protect the environment. The Prevalence and Relevance of Paper in Hospitals Requires Managed Print Services research study examines why a typical 500-bed hospital will produce about 35M pages per year at an approximate cost of $1.5M and provides valuable insight on actions hospitals can take to reduce volume and costs by improving efficiencies in the document production process.

“Hospitals are traditionally paper intensive environments, yet few hospitals have clarity as to the total volume and cost of document production or how to efficiently and cost-effectively strike the right balance between people, processes, hardware and technology to reach business goals,” said Joseph J. Flynn, president and chief executive officer, CynergisTek. “Managing the flow of information in the printed form or electronically is imperative for hospitals with the demands of electronic health records federal mandates and requires a comprehensive plan that aligns and integrates hardware and software in the clinical and business environments to reduce volume, costs and achieve interoperability.” CynergisTek is the only MPS company in the U.S. that works exclusively in hospitals and health care systems and that provides full-time, on-site Resident Teams that work as customer service and technical representatives to support IT departments as strategic partners to reduce the burden of the workload on their staff. The company is at the forefront of providing hospitals with specialized knowledge and expertise as they tackle the transformative shift to e-records compliance to meet the ‘meaningful use’ federal mandates. Its customized MPS solutions for hospitals and health care systems align the workflow of multitude print devices, technology and software which enables maximum connectivity, substantial reduction in paper volume, and end-to-end interoperability which ultimately advances the goal of sharing secure medical records between all care providers and the patient.
