Affiliate Printing for Remote Clinics
In most large healthcare organizations, multiple departments utilize a single Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system to provide uniform tracking and access to patient data. However, some organizations deliver coordinated patient care through remote clinics and other hospital “affiliates” that lack direct access to these central EMR systems.
Consider the case of an independent provider facility:
We are a private healthcare clinic, but we have a relationship with a large hospital in the area. We can access the hospital’s EMR system, but we do not have an easy way to print documents securely from the EMR system to a printer in our facility. Security is important because PHI data is often involved.
