Supporting Healthcare deliver better patient outcomes.

Meeting patient needs and continuously improving healthcare services, against a backdrop of waiting lists, budget pressures and new ways of working can be a challenge.

We can help

Canon has a wealth of experience working with the Healthcare sector to:

  • Improve patient experiences

    through interoperable solutions that enable exchanges of patient data across multiple healthcare service providers.

  • Cut administration costs

    so more funds are available for patient care – with solutions that deliver cost savings across print, document distribution and storage.

  • Cut waiting lists

    with automated processes that speed up day to day tasks such as patient admissions, transfers and discharges.

  • Keep sensitive patient data secure

    in fully auditable, access-controlled systems.

  • Support sustainability

    through innovative, environmentally friendly technologies, supplies and services.

  • "The sheer volume of paperwork in the hospital was staggering and massively time-consuming. We had 18 months of paperwork taking up wall and floor space. That is now all stored digitally, which has created a more safe and pleasant working environment.”

    Our Healthcare solutions

    Intelligent scanning

    As nurses, doctors and consultants move around wards, between sites, and within communities, patient notes are continuously being updated. Our intelligent capture solutions allow healthcare professionals to quickly scan and save important information such as medical reports, test results and referrals in secure, cloud-based document management systems accessible by authorised personnel – for a truly interoperable environment. Intelligent OCR enables automated archiving and quick retrieval – helping improve collaboration across healthcare for better patient experiences.

    Automated processes

    Digitised documents can be moved quickly across stakeholders, and for repeatable processes such as Admissions, Transfers and Discharges. Automated workflows can speed up patient diagnosis and processing, freeing up time to see more patients.

    Managed Print Services

    Whilst print is important, printing costs can be a significant overhead and place extra demands on IT departments. With Canon’s Managed Print Services, we’ll ensure you are reducing the cost of print procurement so savings can be reinvested in patient care. Our Managed Print Services also shift the time taken to manage and maintain your print infrastructure away from your IT teams, so they can focus on higher priority initiatives, like driving interoperability.

    Digital Mailroom

    Get incoming paper mail where it needs to be across multiple sites and dispersed workers, automatically classifying documents and routing them to the correct process or person.

    Hybrid Mail

    Our hybrid mail service can help Trusts deliver better patient care by ensuring patients receive their letters quickly and reliably thus reducing the number of 'did not attend' occurrences. Other benefits for the NHS include less time taken up with patient complaints about late or missing letters and fewer resources required to dispatch letters, freeing up resource to improve the patient pathway.

    “The improved turnaround for transaction processing has eliminated a two day month end document checking process. It has also streamlined the query resolution process, which could take up to five days with documents being moved around the site – now only takes one day on average.”
