Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
TROY Group, Inc., a Worldwide leader in Secure On-Demand Printing Solutions, has successfully integrated more than 100 customer print systems with TROY Secure Print Enterprise(“TSPE”), a powerful software platform that transforms plain paper into secure documents. Originally designed for use in prescription printing, TSPE is now used in a wide range of printing applications that require fraud deterrence.
In 2007, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) enacted a law requiring secure prescription printing measures to combat the rising monetary and societal costs of prescription fraud. The law ordered healthcare providers to adopt prescription issuance to comply with three requirements: Copy resistance, erasure/modification resistance, and counterfeit resistance. After the law went into effect, healthcare providers increasingly sought to contain their growing prescription paper costs since using preprinted paper incorporating one or more of these features is cost-prohibitive.
Using more than 30 years experience of secure on-demand printing expertise, TROY developed SecureRx, a hardware solution that satisfied all three requirements, but used plain paper. In response to subsequent requests for a secure printing solution that worked with existing equipment, TROY developed TSPE. Since the security features are customizable, TSPE can be used for a range of other documents that call for economical methods of secure printing on existing laser printers, whether in a single printer or network environment.
Fraud deterrence is the hallmark of TSPE, features of which include TROYmark, a variable data watermark containing unique user defined information on each document. TROY MicroPrint provides secondary authentication while the TROY Intelligent Warning Box allows first line inspectors to easily verify authenticity. The TROY Copy Evident Pantograph appears when a document is photocopied; the new Pantograph Studio feature provides nearly half a million patterns for optimal results to ensure compatibility with most printers. These features offer complete compliance with federal regulations in healthcare prescription applications, while providing fraud protection for insurance, government, education, financial institutions and brokerage firms.
TSPE can improve an organization’s entire workflow since it eliminates the need for dedicated printers with locking trays, allowing the printer to serve double duty and produce both secure and non-secure documents. Like SecureRx, TSPE applies security features directly to plain paper, eliminating the need to purchase expensive preprinted paper and reducing time spent on chain of custody and inventory issues. In medical applications alone, healthcare facilities can realize a return on investment within six to 12 months.
Larry Landtiser, Executive Vice President and General Manager, TROY Group, Inc., said TSPE is a robust product with countless applications and benefits. “TSPE offers fraud protection, demonstrated return on investment and flexible deployment,” he said. “In health care environments, TSPE supports patient safety, risk reduction and full conformity with federal regulations. Government, shipping, title, legal and other firms that require secure document printing are also using TSPE to achieve a greater level of security. With TSPE, we’re pleased to offer the maximum level of protection against fraud and identity theft.”
