A new ID for patient protection
You handle — and print — a wide variety of documents, many of them incredibly sensitive. Whether it’s narrow ID wristbands, prescription sheets, or regular letter-sized documents, you need to know your data and materials are safe, not just to satisfy government regulations, but to protect your patients.
With Ricoh’s Patient ID Solution for Healthcare, they can be.
Lock down wristbands and prescription pads
Prescription pad theft is a serious issue. ID wristbands, no less so. However, you need to keep blanks on hand to print. That’s why we modified our print trays, allowing you to lock them, keeping thieves out while allowing authorized personnel to restock trays as needed.
Protect patient privacy
Modern printers, advanced as they are, often hold images of printed documents on their hard drives. Savvy thieves could potentially access those images and find sensitive patient information. The RICOH DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) protects that information by automatically overwriting digital images on the device’s hard drive. You can also employ an external hard drive for your printer, which can be removed to a secure location during hours when the printer might be left unattended.
Safeguard your output tray
With our system, users have to verify their identity and the job they want to print before the printer starts to print, so sensitive documents only reach the output tray once the right person is there to retrieve them.
Print the job you need, no add-ons required
Printing ID wristbands on the wrong printer can be disastrous. The adhesive literally gums up the works, figuratively throwing a wrench in your printing plans until you can get a service representative to clean it out. Our printers use Teflon-coated paper trays specially designed to accommodate pressure-sensitive media, cutting down on misfeeds. Should you need to switch from one printer to another for whatever reason, a quick secure digital (SD) card swap will have your backup printer acting exactly like your primary within minutes.
