Questioning the healthcare industry – why and what users print
MISSION VIEJO, CA — July 28, 2016 — CynergisTek, Inc. (OTCQB: AUXO), a leading provider of Managed Print Services (MPS) and IT Security for the healthcare industry, today announces the roll out of its new MPS methodology to include a NO PRINT strategy at AHRMM16 Conference, to held on August 1-2, 2016 at the San Diego Convention Center.
AHRMM, Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management, is an organization advancing the healthcare supply chain. “Our Company expects the news of a Managed Print Service provider, stating it’s time healthcare puts a stop to the continuous use of paper, resulting in a reduction of print/copier devices, supplies and break/fix, to be of great interest for supply chain leaders,” says Simon Vermooten, EVP of Solutions.
CynergisTek’s NO PRINT strategy analyzes why and what users print. The information learned helps improve efficiency of paper and digital workflows to drive additional cost saving opportunities. “Traditionally, hospitals implement managed print service programs resulting in a 10-20% cost savings, but there is a lot of money left on the table. Doing a deep dive analysis into the document life cycle will not only reduce costs but is the first step in making patient health information (PHI) more secure,” says Vermooten.
CynergisTek’s cybersecurity arm of its business, Redspin prevents hackers from accessing a hospital’s network and PHI, while its automation workflow solutions, iPLATFORM, transforms typically printed paper that contains sensitive information to digital format – making it more secure.
Healthcare is moving towards a value based revenue model instead of fee-for-service model and hospital leadership is looking for ways to remove unnecessary waste, as the industry has defined as inefficient processes. “We expect a majority of the pressure to remove unnecessary waste will fall on supply chain and we are here to help uncover those inefficiencies as hospitals transform cumbersome paper processes to digital workflows,” says Vermooten.
CynergisTek’s Managed “NO PRINT” Services program in combination with iPLATFORM, an intelligent workflow enabling automation solution will help hospitals improve processes, cut costs out of their operations and mitigate risk of PHI.
CynergisTek’s, Simon Vermooten, EVP of Solutions will be speaking on Tuesday, August 2, 2016 at 10:45 in Learning Pavilion #1 about a Managed “NO PRINT” Services strategy for healthcare.
