Solaris Health System Turns to Xerox to Reduce Costs, Maximize IT Investment
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Healthcare institutions charged with cost cutting, improved patient satisfaction and overall operational efficiency are turning to Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) for help. Solaris Health System, in Edison, N.J., will save more than 20 percent on costs associated with printing, storing and sharing documents, as one of Xerox’s newest managed print services
Xerox will deploy an MPS strategy to help Solaris reduce IT infrastructure costs across its network of seven healthcare facilities by consolidating the number of output devices like printers, copiers and fax machines and providing pre-emptive service for all equipment regardless of vendor. Solaris will also use Xerox’s expertise in business process outsourcing
to improve the flow of information through its medical network by integrating document management
strategies with existing health information system (HIS) applications and technology.
“By changing how we merge, store and use our data, Xerox will make it possible for our physicians to have the information they need when they need it, and deliver a positive experience to our patients,” said Miroslav Belote, director of Information Systems, Solaris Health System.
Using MPS to redirect print jobs to the most cost-effective machine, Solaris will meet environmental sustainability goals to reduce paper use, power consumption and landfill waste. The health system will also benefit from onsite Xerox document advisors to help with more effective patient communications and regulatory forms. By printing documents on demand in the print shop, Solaris will eliminate piles of hard-copy forms taking up costly warehouse space.
Xerox will design training programs and change management procedures to help employees successfully adapt to new technology and work processes.
“The healthcare industry faces tremendous pressure to provide superior services, manage data and comply with industry regulations on limited budgets,” said John B. Jones, vice president, Healthcare Providers, Xerox. “By relying on Xerox’s expertise in document management, healthcare organizations are saving money and freeing up resources to focus even more on what matters most: providing exceptional care to their patients.”
As the largest provider to manage all document and business process needs within a healthcare organization, Xerox is helping healthcare organizations like Methodist Healthcare
, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Marin General Hospital and White Memorial Medical Center
intelligently organize information – from both paper and electronic sources. Through ACS
, A Xerox Company, Xerox manages all aspects of healthcare programs, healthcare IT, clinical workflows, administration and patient accounting, care and disease management, and business office and revenue cycle operations.
