solutions like Canon’s uniFLOW software provide a range of security controls, including detailed accounting and re- porting. T is allows for easy monitoring and management of networked devices, so printing, copying, faxing and scanning costs can be better tracked within a healthcare organization. In addition, health organization IT profes- sionals can control an entire print fl eet and quickly identify any cost-excessive or suspicious activity.


Consider the growing role of mobile technologies An increase in bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, and the rapid adoption of mobile technology, allow for the instant access of documents from anywhere employees are working. According to IDC, US-based clinical mobility spending is expected to grow from $2.9 billion in 2011 to $5.4 billion in 2016; a compound annual growth rate of 12.7 percent. Healthcare providers should harness this potential for greater productivity and provide employees with the tools and software necessary to integrate mobile technology into existing workfl ows. But while BYOD policies can create more productive and


effi cient employees, healthcare providers need to ensure these off erings are safe, secure and reliable. Signifi cant security- related threats associated with a mobile workforce include the loss of a mobile device and unauthorized access to PHI. When medical staff introduce their own devices into a net- work, the system is vulnerable to data breaches and informa- tion leaks. Adopting an output management and cost-control solution for those mobile devices can help promote secure mobile printing. T ese solutions require authorized users to register each of their identities in order to help ensure that the system will recognize them from any approved device and allow them to print. Once their employees’ mobile devices are secure, healthcare


providers should equip their employees with smart mobile printing solutions to unlock the potential of BYOD. T e “follow-me” print technology mentioned earlier enables employees to print documents through a mobile device from virtually anywhere and then retrieve the items from any networked MFP. Whether on a separate fl oor, building or even hospital, employees can securely and conveniently print and retrieve their printed documents. In addition to productivity gains, strategic BYOD poli- cies have the potential to generate signifi cant cost savings for healthcare providers. Empowering the workforce with mobile devices and supportive technologies can help health organization IT departments save on budget costs and em- ployee resources. Employers should also enact and enforce strict policies to help ensure that employees are aware of and follow best practices and regulations for mobile device use in the healthcare workplace. While the state of the healthcare industry is rapidly evolv- ing, healthcare professionals can stay ahead of the curve with smart approaches to technology. By implementing effi cient document-based workflows, maintaining strict security practices and inspiring productivity with strategic BYOD policies, medical providers can continue to work effi ciently in the new age of healthcare.

Isn’t it time?


Isn’t it time for your facility to have just one central image archive? When making the move to a vendor neutral archive, you will need a solution that offers more than just data storage. Look for a cloud-based solution that offers a patient-centric viewer, a better workflow, and eliminates the need for future migrations.


Novarad, with 20 years of imaging experience, and Dell Healthcare, an industry leader in IT platforms, have teamed up to create MARZ, the world’s most accessible VNA.
