Epic boasts some of the most popular software solutions for mid-size and large healthcare organizations. In fact, an estimated one-third of all U.S. patients will receive care at a facility using Epic® EMR software.
The larger the organization, the harder it is to guarantee fast, reliable delivery of physicians orders, patient wristbands, prescriptions, and other critical documents. You need Epic print solutions that are powerful and reliable yet simple to implement and maintain.
LRS® software provides a platform-independent central point of control that eliminates the need to define and maintain troublesome Windows® print servers, print queues, and printer drivers. We help you simplify your Epic document delivery environment to minimize the chance and impact of Epic printing problems.
Using a documented and supported Epic interface, LRS® software receives document requests from Epic applications and routes them to the intended print device. This same interface allows the VPSX/EI (Epic Interface) solution to provide print status feedback to your EMR system users before Epic printing issues affect patient care.
LRS software provides a platform-independent central point of control that eliminates the need to define and maintain troublesome Windows print servers, print queues, and printer drivers.
Printers are defined only one time in a single location, regardless of how many Epic applications are used. LRS software interprets Epic metadata to dynamically select printer trays with tamper-proof paper or other specialty stock, thus reducing the support burden on IT staff.
Epic document management
Many documents containing Protected Healthcare Information (PHI) must be retained online for long periods of time for information sharing and audit purposes. Some Electronic Medical Records (EMR) solutions provide native facilities for viewing & storing their own files, but few support all of the document sources and formats found in large healthcare organizations.
Epic document management software from LRS provides robust facilities for capturing, storing, and viewing documents in online form. Using a customizable web-based client, authorized users can access EMR or business application output from any computer or mobile device with a browser. Fast and intuitive search tools help employees quickly pinpoint exactly the information they need, aiding both healthcare operations and compliance efforts.

Pull printing in Epic environments
Epic EMR documents often contain PHI, and require special handling to ensure patient confidentiality. When a clinician or other staff member prints a record containing PHI, each minute the document sits unattended at the printer increases the hospital’s exposure to costly penalties and other sanctions.
LRS Output Management solutions have integrated pull printing support to address your secure Epic document delivery needs. Powered by MFPsecure® software and hardware, a user’s queued jobs are released when he or she authenticates their identity via PIN code, identity badge, or other validation method. Custom device-resident software communicates with the core LRS solution to control and track document access for accurate accounting.
Mobile printing for healthcare documents
Mobile Connector for VPSX® software extends the powerful document delivery, accounting, viewing, archival and pull printing capabilities of the LRS solution to users of mobile computing devices. The free “VPSX Print” app lets mobile users print from any supported Apple® iOS® or Android® device to the LRS output management solution.
Alternatively, users can email attached documents to the LRS Mobile Connector solution, which verifies user printing rights before delivering output to the appropriate printer. Either method offers organizations a simple way to manage printing in heterogeneous BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environments.
