HP Inc. launched new print solutions for the healthcare industry. Based on customer insights and co-developed with healthcare providers, associations and partners, HP Healthcare Print Solutions address the most pressing issues facing the healthcare industry today, including patient wellbeing and safety, care coordination, mobility, privacy and security.
Innovations co-developed with healthcare professionals include industry’s first sterilisable printers, exclusive EMR-compliant workflow solutions, and services to improve patient safety and privacy.
“As our healthcare systems continue to battle the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and brace for a second wave colliding with the flu this fall, the issues of patient safety and clinician burnout have intensified,” said Daniel Colling, RN, Global Head Healthcare Industry Solutions & Practice, HP Inc. “With this new portfolio we are reinventing healthcare technology to put the doctor, clinician and patient needs before anything else.”
HP’s new Healthcare Edition MFP keyboards and touch-enabled control panels are designed to be disinfected regularly, withstanding up to 10,000X industry-standard germicidal wipes, helping to reduce the risk of health-care associated infections (HAIs) and viral pathogen transmission1,2. HP has further enhanced the disinfection capabilities of high-touch areas of the printer with removable covers/drapes that can be sterilised daily in an autoclave up to 134 degrees. HP is also collaborating with Clorox Healthcare to offer a guide detailing infection prevention best practices and other educational tools.
In order to enhance support of infection prevention policies, HP has also broadened disinfection capabilities of HP Personal System devices to include HP Engage Go and HP Elite products such as HP EliteDesks, HP EliteOne (display panel only), ZBook Mobile Workstations and Z Series Desktop Workstations, HP Elite and Z Displays (Z, S, E and P series, Display Panel Only) and HP Education Notebooks (keyboards only).
HP’s global Managed Print Services (MPS) programme with Zebra Technologies provides the HP Advance mobile app on Zebra’s TC52-HC handheld touch computer to enable care providers to minimise contact with common points of infection transmission at the point of care. Providers can walk up to any HP Healthcare Edition MFP, authenticate with the TC52-HC mobile computer and release critical patient documents without having to touch the device.
HP Healthcare Edition MFPs include the HP Workpath Biscom for Healthcare app fully integrated with EPIC and Cerner.
HP Healthcare Print Solutions are now available for direct MPS customers in North America with plans to roll out across Europe and Asia in 2021.
