Canon U.S.A. to Showcase Latest Paper to EHR Solutions for Healthcare Environments at HIMSS 2014


Orlando, FL, February 24, 2014 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will demonstrate its document capture strategies designed to help expedite workflows and enhance information exchange at the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society Annual Conference (HIMSS) Orange County Convention Center, Orlando from February 23-27, 2014 in booth # 829.

As new healthcare legislation continues to transform the industry, providers are seeking new ways to help organizations streamline costs while providing outstanding patient care. At the show, Canon will feature a comprehensive set of products and solutions that support the organization, security and mobility of patient information - while helping to increase productivity and create more seamless business processes.

In addition, two of Canon's Software Partners, ChartCapture (Canon's booth, #829) and ErgoTron, Inc. (booth #3039), will showcase solutions that can integrate with compatible Canon scanners to further assist in the enhancement of healthcare workflows. Visitors to these booths can experience how ChartCapture, a leader in capturing chart history for EMR environments, converts paper records to digital files using the Canon imageFORMULA DR-M160 document scanner, while ErgoTron, a manufacturer of digital display mounting and mobility products, will exhibit its StyleView LCD Cart and demonstrate how its mobile cart solutions can work in tandem with the Canon imageFORMULA P-215 "Scan-tini" document scanners for hospital and clinical use.

Enhanced, Cost-Effective Workflows

In today's healthcare climate, the need for fast, accurate and secure information is more important than ever before. At HIMSS 2014, Canon will demonstrate solutions designed to help expedite document-based processes and help enhance workflows.

To help providers safeguard patient health information (PHI) and encourage providers to operate more cost effectively without impacting the quality of care, Canon will be showcasing its output management and cost control solution, uniFLOW. uniFLOW, designed to handle workflow-related challenges, helps transform document activities that may be wasteful, into streamlined methods that help improve document security, cut costs and boost productivity. With this solution, providers have access to advanced scanning capabilities, can route jobs for efficient output, access print reports and more.

Canon document technology solutions, such as the imageFORMULA DR-G1130 document scanner and imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5255 MFP, can help users quickly and easily transfer paper-based patient records into electronic health records (EHRs). These solutions can help healthcare providers capture paper-based clinical data and quickly incorporate it into patient records.

Seamless Information Exchange

Many healthcare organizations still face restrictions with hard-copy patient records that creates inefficiencies and excess costs for healthcare providers. With Nuance's eCopy ShareScan, Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices provide an intuitive solution that integrates unstructured documents into EHR applications. This technology scans hard-copy patient records, on a Canon MFP with embedded eCopy ShareScan and sends the metadata to EHRs as a standardized HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA)) message. It provides a seamless exchange of healthcare information that helps create efficiencies to help improve patient care by affording healthcare organizations fast and continuous availability to important medical documents helping to boost efficiency and cut costs.
