The real-life scenario

As one of the core tech­ni­cal pro­ces­ses in hos­pi­tals, prin­ting is often time-con­suming and chal­len­ging. The mul­ti­tu­de of prin­ter manu­fac­tu­rers and spe­cia­list pro­grams, strict legal requi­re­ments and peop­le who rely on pro­per­ly pro­du­ced prin­touts make the pro­cess of respon­si­b­ly admi­nis­te­ring and mana­ging such an envi­ron­ment dif­fi­cult and time-consuming.

Lin­king prin­ters to the users with the hos­pi­tal infor­ma­ti­on sys­tem and the respec­ti­ve spe­cia­list app­li­ca­ti­ons is one of the main chal­len­ges in day-to- day prac­ti­ce. How do doc­tors and nur­ses always get con­nec­ted to the clo­sest prin­ter without having to give it ano­t­her thought? How can we ensu­re that the forms used in the hos­pi­tal infor­ma­ti­on sys­tem are prin­ted cor­rect­ly? How can we pre­vent misprints cau­sed by ope­ra­tor errors? How can we ensu­re that the prin­ting pro­cess is secu­re and gua­ran­tee high avai­la­bi­li­ty? The­se are just a few of the ques­ti­ons that IT depart­ments have to deal with on a dai­ly basis.

The chal­len­ges are in the details

The num­ber of prin­ter queu­es mul­ti­plies dra­ma­ti­cal­ly in the hos­pi­tal envi­ron­ment due to the lar­ge num­ber of employees, local work­sta­tions and spe­cia­list app­li­ca­ti­ons with spe­ci­fic prin­ting requi­re­ments. This means that admi­nis­tra­tors are faced with the chal­len­ge of main­tai­ning an over­view of the print land­s­cape, kee­ping the dri­vers for the indi­vi­du­al device manu­fac­tu­rers up to date, and allo­ca­ting the prin­ters to the indi­vi­du­al employees sim­ply and effectively.

  • A lar­ge num­ber of indi­vi­du­al print queu­es, making a cen­tra­li­zed manage­ment approach difficult
  • No over­view of the indi­vi­du­al con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons or the print infrastructure
  • Modi­fi­ca­ti­ons should, ide­al­ly, be made inde­pendent­ly of the hos­pi­tal infor­ma­ti­on system
  • Forms are assi­gned to prin­ters or paper trays local­ly at the workstation
  • Time-con­suming troubleshooting
  • Risk of user errors – misprints due to selec­ting the wrong print queue
  • High avai­la­bi­li­ty for print ser­vers or indi­vi­du­al prin­ter locations
  • Major manu­al effort when swit­ching bet­ween prin­ter manufacturers

The solu­ti­on

We offer a prin­ting solu­ti­on that has been tailo­red to the pre­cise  requi­re­ments and needs of hos­pi­tals so that hos­pi­tal staff can  con­cen­tra­te on their core task – saving lives and caring for patients.

  • Over­view and secu­ri­ty for IT depart­ments
    Prin­Tau­rus for Health­ca­re gives you an over­view of your ent­i­re print land­s­cape. No mat­ter whe­ther you print from Micro­soft print ser­vers or SAP and spe­cia­list app­li­ca­ti­ons, ever­ything can be mana­ged trans­par­ent­ly from a sin­gle gra­phi­cal user inter­face. The manage­ment and admi­nis­tra­ti­on of prin­ters can be auto­ma­ted, print dri­vers can be updated easi­ly, and adjus­t­ments can be made quick­ly and cen­tral­ly. Prin­ting pro­ces­ses can be auto­ma­ti­cal­ly backed up and con­fi­gu­red to ensu­re high availability.
  • Sim­pli­fy prin­ting from dis­pa­ra­te hos­pi­tal infor­ma­ti­on sys­tems
    Only one prin­ter queue per user to enab­le them to con­fi­gu­re form set­tings, thus redu­cing the time and effort requi­red for admi­nis­tra­ti­on and dis­tri­bu­ti­on by a fac­tor of 10.
  • Satis­fied end users
    Using prin­ters is dra­ma­ti­cal­ly sim­pli­fied for end users. All of the users are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly con­nec­ted to the prin­ters they need for their day-to-day work. The prin­ter fol­lows the user from work­sta­tion to work­sta­tion. The reduc­tion in the num­ber of prin­ter queu­es requi­red for end users makes it easier for them to select the right printer.
