There are many options available to hospital and healthcare organizations when it comes to things like electronic healthcare records (EHR) and electronic medical records (EMR). Many companies specialize in these types of EMR systems, such as Epic, NextGen, Meditech, Cerner, WebPT, Allscripts EHR, Practice Fusion, CentralReach, among others.
These sophisticated solutions often integrate other functions along with the EHR/EMR features, such as scheduling, clinical, and financial services support. While this centralized functionality is desirable for many hospitals and healthcare organizations, it adds a layer of complexity when it comes to printing, scanning, and user management for healthcare. Factor in the strict legal requirements to which hospitals must comply, this creates a complicated mix for IT administrators to navigate.
EMR Print Management with Tricerat
There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to printing from systems such as Epic or NextGen and their competitors. Complex functionality paired with considerable compliance requirements for patient data privacy make for a difficult printing environment. Tricerat’s suite of enterprise printing, scanning, and user management solutions make things simple, even under these diverse IT environments and requirements.
One problem that is frequently faced by IT admins trying to print from EMR systems is the dynamic naming conventions of printers in VDI and remote access environments.
