HP Showcases Healthcare Solutions to Drive Transformation Across Industry

Expanded healthcare portfolio, partner solutions enrich patient experience, accelerate workflow

ORLANDO, Fla. — HP today expanded its leading healthcare portfolio with solutions designed to help healthcare providers improve workflow, enhance patient and caregiver experience, and reduce compliance risk.

Featured HP healthcare solutions at the 2014 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition include tablets and PCs that provide access to electronic medical records, thin client and print solutions to improve workflow, and workstations that provide the performance and reliability required for healthcare environments. Each solution is designed to help physicians and nurses gain access to information and streamline day-to-day tasks so they can focus on patient care.

“HP shares our vision for a safer, higher-quality and lower-cost healthcare system,” said John Vozenitek, emergency medicine physician and chief medical officer, Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center. “HP has the tools that we need to make those impacts on patient care.”

“Technology intersecting with the continuum of care is what we do,” said Nicole Steenrod, critical care clinical education scholar, OSF Saint Francis Medical Center. “HP technology helps to make collaboration easier.”

Improve workflow, enhance patient care and reduce risk

Healthcare businesses constantly look for ways to simplify workflow so caregivers can do what they do best—care for patients. Providing healthcare workers with access to up-to-date information and cost-effective innovative print solutions during each stage of the patient experience is achieved by deploying HP’s managed print services (MPS), document management, security and mobility solutions.

Mobile solutions are transforming the patient experience, and physicians and nurses are able to provide an interactive experience at the point of care. HP tablets and mobile solutions help caregivers securely access patient and medical data when and where they want. Complementary technology—including digital signage in the waiting room, desktops to view important test results, and print solutions to ensure patients have the right instructions—helps healthcare providers deliver improved experiences for patients.

At every stage of the patient experience, security is a major concern for healthcare providers—more than 90 percent of organizations in a recent survey had at least one security breach in the last two years.(1) Increased CMS and HIPAA regulations have only increased the need for robust security management. HP Access Control and HP Security Center are two examples of solutions from HP’s portfolio of hardware, software and service offerings for evaluating and implementing solutions to protect confidential information, avoid noncompliance costs and enhance device security. 

“Healthcare providers crave help from trusted advisors to embrace technology that improves and optimizes the care continuum,” said Kevin Murphy, vice president, Strategy and Business Enablement, Printing and Personal Systems, HP. “As a strategic technology partner, HP works with healthcare providers step by step to realize organizational and technology enabled change.”

HP’s expanded portfolio of transformational healthcare solutions helps organizations optimize care at each stage of the patient experience, from admissions to checkout. Featured products from HP’s healthcare solutions portfolio and partner solutions will be demonstrated at HIMSS in HP booth No. 1949.

Streamline the admissions process

  • HP Digital Signage with multitouch screens powering software from Four Winds Interactive allows hospitals to implement self-check-in and keep patients engaged with interactive content in the waiting room.
  • HP Slate Pro 21 and HP ElitePad with Retail Jacket provide quick access to information, giving patients and administrators a more versatile experience.
  • HP OfficeJet Pro X prints admissions wristbands with the world’s fastest desktop print times.(2) Paired with the HP ElitePad and HP ePrint, this solution enables administrators to use single sign on to quickly authenticate for secure tap-and-go printing.(3)

Improve workflow at nurses and doctors stations

HP ZBook14 Mobile Workstation enables physicians to be mobile when moving between patients, while still maintaining the power and flexibility to switch to a desktop.
