Change habits. Transform information. Improve lives.

HIMSS 2019 | Orlando | February 11-15| Booth 1933
 

At HIMSS19, let's try something new

In February, thousands of healthcare and IT experts will gather to talk about what's next. As humans, we crave this connection, the ability to talk to each other freely, share ideas and learn.

And we believe this level of meaningful communication should happen year-round throughout your entire system.


Let's have a conversation:

  • How do we create new habits in healthcare?
  • How do we eliminate archaic practices such as fax?
  • How do we engage patients better with their data?
  • How do we fundamentally improve patient & staff experience?

Join the conversation #RicohHIMSS

 
We'll tell you about healthcare systems that are doing this today, at their own pace, and seeing unprecedented results. We can help you map a plan to transform your person-to-person and system-to-system communication – everything from efficiencies, information governance and data capture/access – fundamentally improving patient and staff experience.


Come brainstorm with us at booth 1933

86% of healthcare mistakes are clerical

  • 86% of mistakes made in the healthcare industry are administrative.1
  • Roughly 25% of all U.S. hospital spending consists of administrative costs.2
  • Only 4 in 10 hospitals report that their providers can send and receive secure electronic messages withholding confidential PHI to and from sources outside of the health system or organization.3

Providers often rely on fax to bridge communication between internal and external systems, as well as with outpatient care providers and community partners that are still paper-based.

This is habit, not best practice. Read more on fundamental habits that are holding our healthcare system back, and how we can change this one step at a time.
