Lexmark’s New Patient Communication Solution Provides Color Printing, Print-on-Demand for Healthcare

Lexmark International today launched Lexmark Patient Communication, a healthcare solution that integrates Lexmark color printing into healthcare providers’ existing processes for immediate access to printed forms and documents.

“We’ve all seen the patient discharge packets copied so many times they are fuzzy, skewed and hard to read,” commented Marty DeGraff, director of Lexmark Healthcare. “It might seem like a small problem, but those documents are the first line of defense when it comes to post-care patient outcomes.”

Lexmark notes that when a patient is unable to clearly read a form, they may provide incomplete or inaccurate information which can affect their care. Out-of-date forms used by different departments to collect information can also lead to synchronization issues between health-information management (HIM) systems and patient data. Confusion about post-discharge care can also lead to negative patient experiences and re-admissions.

Lexmark’s Patient Communication solution is said to enhance all types of patient documents and makes the right documents instantly available to clinicians and staff. Forms can be printed on demand from any location with Lexmark printers and MFPs, eliminating the need for pre-printed stock and time spent tracking them down, as well as poor image quality or out-of-date forms.

Forms and other materials can now also be designed with patient use in mind, using color for documents requiring higher patient engagement, including spot color to highlight key sections so that patients can complete forms more quickly and accurately.

Lexmark’s MFPs and printers enable users to print on label stock, wristbands, card stock, plain paper. and more with adherence to brand standards, reproducing logos and signature graphics with color-matching technology.

Rather than forcing a one-size-fits-all solution into the healthcare environment, Lexmark says its healthcare-workflow experts assist customers in designing a solution customized for their hospital’s unique requirements. The solution is available via Lexmark authorized resellers or directly from Lexmark.
