LAS VEGAS, NV, February 21, 2012 – As a provider of solutions for electronic medical and healthcare records needs, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will showcase state-of-the-art technologies at this year's Healthcare Information Management Systems Society Conference (HIMSS) at the Venetian Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas that are specifically geared towards separate constituents within a healthcare office. Canon's booth #12406 will show examples of how Canon's imageFORMULA document scanners and imageCLASS laser devices can address the unique needs of various healthcare "environments" such as Billing, Admissions, Nurses' Station, Back Office, Physicians' Office and IT Desk.

At the Nuance booth and in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase as a part of the Health Story Project use case, Canon will exhibit successful interoperability with electronic health record (EHR) applications by sending scanned documents with an HL7 CDA from imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunction products (MFPs) using the embedded Nuance eCopy ShareScan v5 software. This solution advances the healthcare industry's goal to create a complete patient health story by enriching EHRs through the inclusion of paper-based, clinical document information, and facilitating the seamless exchange of healthcare information.
