Vizient Awards Contract to Toshiba for Printers and Managed Print Services

Toshiba America Business Solutions has finalized a contract with Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven healthcare performance improvement company in the country.  The agreement allows Vizient to deliver immediate value to its U.S. membership through Toshiba’s multifunction printers, thermal printers and Managed Print as a Service (MPaaS) program.

Vizient members nationwide – including academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute healthcare providers – represent more than $130 billion in annual purchasing volume.  Through this agreement, Vizient members, about half the nation’s health care providers, will be able to substantially reduce costs, increase security and gain greater control and visibility of their printer fleets with Toshiba.

Ensuring Compliance While Safeguarding Data

Toshiba e‑STUDIO multifunction printers (MFPs) and document solutions streamline common healthcare workflow applications and help ensure compliance with government regulations including HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).

Toshiba MFPs feature exceptional device, access, document and fleet security elements including proprietary self-encrypting hard drives with wipe technology to safeguard personally identifiable information (PII) and protected healthcare information (PHI).  The systems are also Protection Profile for Hardcopy Devices (HCD-PP) certified with optional Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validated hard drives that address rigorous government security compliance measures.

Enabling Superior Print Options for Rigorous Medical Demands

In addition to supporting healthcare documentation like patient intake forms with Toshiba’s portfolio of MFPs, the Vizient contract also makes smaller format printers available, which are ideal for a variety of critical medical operations.  Featuring broad connectivity options with superior print speeds, Toshiba’s label printers are ideal for on-demand specimen and pharmaceutical labeling and patient wristband creation.  Delivering scannable barcode labels, Toshiba label printers further assist healthcare personnel with tracking medical supplies and medications while maintaining administrative accuracy of medicines and patient data privacy.

Providing Hands-off Support and Peace of Mind

Toshiba’s Encompass MPaaS Program enables organizations to print medical records, insurance forms and appointment reminders more securely, sustainably, efficiently, and affordably.  Toshiba’s MPaaS program delivers significant cost savings through fleet optimization, better visibility and enhanced device management thereby freeing IT resources.

Improving Patient, Visitor & Staff Communications

Toshiba also helps boost healthcare organizations’ communication efforts via digital signage.  Toshiba’s dynamic audio/video (AV) and services deliver vital content and employee recognition for healthcare staff, while its interactive and static wayfinding applications help patients and visitors navigate healthcare settings.
