Healthcare professionals working in hospitals and for Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) need to efficiently send and receive patient information. RICOH Healthcare Direct Services can help you make the shift from fax to direct messaging and improve the way you manage critical patient information.


 
 

Raise efficiency by optimizing processes

 

Utilize processes that are more efficient, more connected and less error prone.

When healthcare systems become more efficient and more connected — everybody wins. Staff are more productive and experience fewer interruptions from service clarification requests. Communication within hospitals and IDNs improve. Information flows, so patients can get the care they need.

 

Smooth the referral process

 

Referrals are a critical component of quality clinical care.

RICOH Healthcare Direct Services enable diagnostic service providers and specialists to integrate more closely with referring physicians. Immediate availability of clinical information results in more productivity for staff members, who spend less time tracking down missing pieces of information.

 

Improve patient satisfaction levels

 

Patient outcomes determine provider growth.

We understand that it can be difficult asking partners to suddenly change how they work. That's why we implement change management strategies — giving “slow adopters" the ability to transition at their own pace and giving “quick adopters" the opportunity to start realizing the benefits immediately.
