Konica Minolta Eliminates Costs Associated with Pre-printed Prescription Forms

Dispatcher Phoenix Healthcare Allows Healthcare Providers to Print Prescriptions with Tamper-Resistant Security Features Using Low Cost Laser Printer Paper

Ramsey, NJ – April 10, 2015 – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) announces enhancements to its automated workflow software designed to help hospitals and clinics eliminate the costs associated with pre-printed prescription forms. Dispatcher Phoenix Healthcare now includes Rx Shield, a new feature allowing healthcare providers to print prescription forms incorporating tamper-resistant security features on Konica Minolta printers and eliminating the need for pre-printed forms.

Exclusive to Konica Minolta bizhub multifunction printers (MFPs), Rx Shield supports the application of CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) tamper-resistant security requirements when printing prescriptions on standard, off-the-shelf printer paper from EHR systems. This results in immediate material costs savings by eliminating or minimizing pre-printed forms with per sheet expenditures, providing your organization with an incredible cost savings every year. As part of Konica Minolta’s EnvisionIT Healthcare solution portfolio, Rx Shield is offered as a standard component of Dispatcher Phoenix Healthcare and is also available as a stand-alone module for all other versions of Dispatcher Phoenix.

Dispatcher Phoenix Healthcare is an easy-to-use solution for the scanning, processing, converting and secure sharing of medical records in support of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) standards and other regulatory requirements. It integrates directly into the Konica Minolta bizhub MFP control panel and includes connections to Electronic Medical Record applications, such as Cerner®, Epic®, Allscripts®, Meditech®, GE Healthcare’s Centricity®, etc., through direct integration with OnBase® by Hyland. In addition, Dispatcher Phoenix Healthcare includes features that make it easier for healthcare professionals to take care of their patients, including barcode recognition to quickly organize insurance claim forms, zonal OCR to extract data from medical forms, automated file conversion to speed processing of patient files, scan to patient folder capabilities, intelligent redaction to safeguard patient records, and more.  Dispatcher Phoenix Healthcare leverages a modular architecture, which allows customers to easily add optional features to the application, such as Forms Processing for patient admission forms, connectors to other document management systems to share and access lab reports, and much more.

“Bringing the Dispatcher Phoenix Healthcare Rx Shield capability to market demonstrates Konica Minolta’s commitment to solving real challenges for our healthcare customers, and our continued investment in growing the healthcare solutions and services business,” says Sam Errigo, senior vice president, Business Intelligence Services, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “By significantly reducing our customers’ reliance on costly pre-printed prescription forms, operational costs are minimized contributing to an overall lower cost of care – a key objective of the Affordable Care Act.”
