Canon Solutions America and Global Technology Leader Collaborate to Streamline Business Processes for Hospitals

MELVILLE, N.Y., February 20, 2017 - Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc. today announced a strategic alliance with Levi, Ray & Shoup, Inc. (LRS) that demonstrates Canon Solutions America's commitment to expand its healthcare Information Management (IM) solutions to further support the needs of the healthcare industry.

Coupled with the innovative technologies from Canon, the relationship with the global technology leader is expected to help hospitals and enterprise level health care organizations simplify and modernize their information output infrastructures. LRS will provide healthcare output management solutions that will reinforce the power of Canon's imageRUNNER ADVANCE third generation platform multifunction printer (MFP).

As a privately held multinational corporation headquartered in Springfield, Illinois, LRS has developed and sold computer software and provided a vast array of information technology services through multiple product divisions for over 35 years. Additionally, LRS is consistently ranked in the list of top software companies in Software Magazine's annual Software 500. This partnership further enhances Canon Solutions America's ability to offer healthcare customers an environment where output is secure, efficient, and reliable – helping to ensure HIPAA compliance and protected health information (PHI) integrity.

"The end game is to help healthcare organizations achieve their goal of providing the best patient care possible. By combining the world leading healthcare technology of LRS with the power of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE third generation multifunctional platform, we've added a whole other dimension to our abilities to help them meet that goal," says Mike Sannomiya, senior vice president, Marketing, Enterprise Services and Solutions, Canon Solutions America.

Hospitals face a complicated web of output, with a multitude of applications, platforms, and devices, which leads to printing redundancies and unnecessary IT labor, and can affect delays in daily operations. While healthcare clinical systems house important patient information, they can't ensure that critical patient documents are printed where and when they are needed most, or even that they are printed at all. These problems are expensive, and worse, lead to lapses and delays in patient care.

In summary, "it's complicated," remarks Jay Boor, LRS Business Development and Alliances Manager – North America. "Together with Canon Solutions America we can reduce the complexity and associated cost burden of printing from the major Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems as well as transforming legacy data streams into simple and accessible output for healthcare workers."
