Strengthening output management for tightened security

by Randy Pelikan

Healthcare leaders are often looking to improve security and safeguard information both internally and externally.

With the vast amount of information being disseminated quickly among various channels, it’s no wonder that data breaches and cyber attacks often occur.

And while the majority of these breaches are small (under 500 records)1, the risks of these attacks are often heightened by human error and paper processes. Taking a proactive approach to improve your organization’s output management infrastructure can help protect against repercussions including reputational damage and financial loss.

Here are five simple steps you can take to help identify “weak links” in your output management infrastructure.

1. Identify gaps in your print infrastructure security. Conduct a risk assessment to identify any gaps in your output security, like unattended print trays, before they become a full-blown crisis situation.

2. Centralize & harmonize your print device fleet. With the right backend systems and software, you can improve monitoring capabilities and even trace back exactly where a document originated.

3. Improve workflows to reduce misuse and mishandling. By capturing paper in the beginning of the process and streamlining workflows associated with those documents, you’ll help mitigate the chance of human error.
