ACS MediHealth brings decades of health IT experience to TROY’s secure printing expertise. The resulting collaborative solutions offer seamless secure prescription issuance.
Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
TROY Group, a worldwide leader in healthcare document security, has teamed with ACS MediHealth, a mobility solution collaborator with Meditech, to offer healthcare providers prescription printing capabilities to complement eprescribing initiatives. TROY’s healthcare division will work with ACS MediHealth to ensure Meditech EHR system users experience no gaps in prescription generation security.
TROY Healthcare Solutions have been widely adopted by hundreds of hospitals that have implemented Meaningful Use (MU) of EHR technologies like Meditech Magic, Client Server and 6.x systems. ACS MediHealth has served as Meditech mobility collaborator for more than 17 years. TROY solutions have integrated with Meditech products since 2008, establishing Meditech as a TROY certified healthcare solutions partner, so the TROY/ACS partnership is a natural fit.
While it’s estimated that eventually 80% of all prescriptions will be sent electronically due to MU incentive requirements, healthcare providers are finding multiple scenarios that require issuance of prescriptions on paper. Such situations demand the same level of security and safety provided by an eprescribing system, for both practical and regulatory reasons. TROY solutions print secure and compliant prescriptions on plain paper, eliminating the need for expensive preprinted prescription paper, dedicated locking printers and paper chain of custody hassles.
According to ACS MediHealth President David Dean, because the healthcare information landscape has experienced rapid advances in technology, providers often overlook the situations that still require printed documents – especially prescriptions. “The need to print presented a challenge for us to look for a solutions-based alternative,” he said. “The software that drives the TROY solution has a lot of value as it supports client needs for eprescribing under MU stage 2. TROY helps create a fully compliant prescription generation system.”
TROY Healthcare Solutions Vice President and General Manager John Hodgson said TROY’s relationship with ACS MediHealth represents a win for healthcare providers navigating the complex requirements for eprescribing. “ACS MediHealth brings decades of health IT experience to TROY’s secure printing expertise. The resulting collaborative solutions offer seamless secure prescription issuance,” he said. TROY is proud to offer a fully integrated and tested solution to ACS MediHealth’s Meditech customers.”
