The 4 Biggest Challenges
Facing Healthcare Organizations

While working in healthcare is rewarding, it’s also not lacking for challenges.
Over the course of our 15+ years in this business, we’ve identified the following four challenges as the biggest ones facing our healthcare clients.

1. Runaway Overhead

Even with all the oversight involved with the healthcare industry, many companies are still burdened with exorbitant amounts of overhead. On average, healthcare companies spend nearly 9% of their entire yearly revenues on printing.

These are costs are often associated with things like:

  • Administration
  • Energy Use
  • Inefficient Workflows
  • Invoicing
  • IT Support
  • Misuse of Print Resources
  • Network Management
  • Recycling
  • Relationships with Multiple Vendors

Unfortunately, your organization may be suffering from many – even all – of these, ensuring that your budget is always spread thin.

Document Management

2. Document Management

Printing documents isn’t the only place waste takes place, though.

It’s estimated that every $1 healthcare companies spend on printing images costs another $9 in management costs.

Of course, one of the reasons for this is because of the regulations involved with PHI.

However, it’s also because these documents usually face a long journey between the printer and their final destination. Inefficient document management leads to expensive bottlenecks.

3. Cyber Security

At this point, it goes without saying that every company, regardless of its industry, needs to be concerned about cyber criminals.

However, healthcare companies have proven to be especially popular targets. This is largely because they store sensitive patient data and financial information.

That’s why any printing solution you invest in must place a big emphasis on security. Otherwise, cyber criminals will have little problem using your printing environment to steal valuable information, which would be an extremely costly crime to recover from.

4. Compliance with Regulations

Obviously, there’s no separating this industry from the many regulations governing it. Aside from those aimed at PHI, there’s also HIPAA and countless others.

While they’re certainly created with the best of intentions, it can be extremely expensive to follow these rules. Storing, transferring, sharing, and securing data also leads to unnecessary costs when done inefficiently.

The 3 Phases of Our Total Laser Care (TLC)
Pro Managed Print Services Program

The good news is that we have a proven solution to help your healthcare company. Better still, it’s divided into four phases, so it’s easy to plan ahead for its implementation.

Maintain Your Current Deployment

1. Maintain Your Current Deployment

Enjoying better results from your printing environment doesn’t mean throwing out all of your current devices and starting from scratch.

The first phase of our TLC managed print services involves assessing your environment and proactively managing the devices you rely on through remote technology.

Going forward, we’ll provide all of the preventative maintenance, supplies, helpdesk support, and onsite services you need to get the most of what you already have.

This one phase alone can save you as much as 30%. You only pay us for what you print.

2. Optimize Your Document Production Practices

Over the years, document production practices have evolved.

One of the biggest changes has been the increase in copiers, printers, and fax machines each institution uses. This also means these devices are usually dispersed over multiple sites. That, in turn, leads to redundancy and bloated overhead.

During the second phase, we’ll streamline your entire printing infrastructure. After we’ve assessed the equipment and software you rely on, we’ll begin optimizing this use so you see costs fall.

Typically, this requires something as simple as repositioning your vital resources to locations that see the highest demand and consolidating other devices where it’s appropriate.

3. Improve Your Workflow

Given the sheer number of documents healthcare organizations generate, you simply cannot take for granted how important it is to have a streamlined, effective workflow. Anything less than the most efficient version is going to cost you.

With our experience, we can show you exactly how to manage, store, route, and control your data efficiently and securely.
