Canon Solutions America has entered into a strategic alliance with Levi, Ray & Shoup to help expand its healthcare Information Management (IM) solutions to further support the needs of the healthcare industry.

Coupled with the innovative technologies from Canon, the relationship with the global technology leader is expected to help hospitals and enterprise level health care organizations simplify and modernize their information output infrastructures.

LRS will provide healthcare output management solutions that will reinforce the power of Canon's image RUNNER ADVANCE third generation platform multifunction printer (MFP).

"The end game is to help healthcare organizations achieve their goal of providing the best patient care possible. By combining the world leading healthcare technology of LRS with the power of the image RUNNER ADVANCE third generation multifunctional platform, we've added a whole other dimension to our abilities to help them meet that goal," said Mike Sannomiya, senior vice president, marketing, enterprise services and solutions, Canon Solutions America.

Hospitals face a complicated web of output, with a multitude of applications, platforms, and devices, which leads to printing redundancies and unnecessary IT labor, and can affect delays in daily operations. While healthcare clinical systems house important patient information, they can't ensure that critical patient documents are printed where and when they are needed most, or even that they are printed at all. These problems are expensive, and worse, lead to lapses and delays in patient care.

In summary, "it's complicated," said Jay Boor, LRS Business Development and Alliances Manager – North America. "Together with Canon Solutions America we can reduce the complexity and associated cost burden of printing from the major Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems as well as transforming legacy data streams into simple and accessible output for healthcare workers."
