Affiliate & Remote Clinic Printing
In most large healthcare organizations, all departments and
facilities 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. This makes it difficult to provide reliable and secure
delivery of care-related documentation. Affiliate printing is a way to
address this requirement.
LRS® Output Management solutions bridge this gap, enabling
your EMR applications to do affiliate printing directly to output
destinations outside your corporate network. Patient documents are
delivered to remote affiliates in the same fast, secure manner as those
at your main campus, with the same high level of document tracking and
To protect the contents of sensitive patient documents, LRS software
supports data encryption during affiliate printing to a target output
device. The affiliate printing solution uses IPPS technology to
safeguard healthcare data in motion across the network, both from the
point of document origin (e.g., a desktop computer) and the destination
printer, MFP, or other device. This provides an added layer of security
in affiliate printing networks.
In order to provide affiliates with greater
autonomy over their patients’ healthcare documents, the LRS solution
can also convert EMR output to PDF form for secure local storage in PDF
format. This enables remote clinics to view, print, or reprint patient
records as needed, while maintaining a record of who accessed which
patient document, when, where and how many times.
