Offering Now Includes Epic EHR Print Integration

Ramsey, NJ, — Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) is proud to announce the approval and availability of its Dispatcher Paragon secure print release app on Epic’s App Orchard marketplace. Konica Minolta is one of only two print OEMs who can claim this certification, a major endorsement by the dominant electronic health record (EHR) software provider in the healthcare industry.

“The security of health information is a critical issue faced by healthcare organizations today, and we are extremely proud of the efforts and contributions from many team members at Konica Minolta toward the approval and listing of Dispatcher Paragon in the Epic App Orchard, the app marketplace from Epic, the preeminent EHR in the US,” said Joe Cisna, Vertical Solutions Director, Digital Workplace, Konica Minolta. “Inclusion in the App Orchard exemplifies our commitment to innovation and providing healthcare workers with secure print management solutions that improve end-user productivity and ensure organizations have cost control of their printer fleets.”

Patient care, safety and cost are among the top priorities of any healthcare provider organization. Securing patient data has become paramount given the growing cybercrime problem, and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Hospitals need to safeguard themselves against unpermitted access to printed paper records, while also managing the volume and cost of print. Konica Minolta’s Dispatcher Paragon, now approved for use with Epic, the leading provider of EHR solutions, offers EHR-integrated solutions to these ongoing challenges. With Dispatcher Paragon, healthcare providers will no longer be distracted from their core mission of delivering quality patient care by unmanaged and unsecured print, cumbersome print driver management, excessive print queues and Windows print server maintenance.
