Researcher says company’s focus on business process transformation delivers greater value; and 2012 analyst report cites the company’s MPS strategy as driving EMR readiness in US health care
MISSION VIEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AUXILIO, Inc. (AUXO.OB), the pioneer in Managed Print Services (MPS) for health care, has been distinguished for its vendor neutral business model by a Quocirca researcher as a ‘best of breed’ independent MPS company that focuses on business process transformation that “delivers greater value to the customer and goes beyond simply equipment sales or device consolidation.” The recently released 2012 Quocirca analyst report also states that as a US health care specific MPS provider, the company is ‘well positioned to help hospitals tackle printing inefficiencies, control escalating costs and ensure EMR readiness.’
According to Louella Fernandes, Quocirca Principal Analyst and co-author of the study on the MPS global market, “We would consider AUXILIO’s business model as an independent provider of managed print services as a best-of-breed example of what today’s market demands of MPS providers as their engagements are focused on business process transformation that delivers greater value to the customer and goes beyond simply equipment sales or device consolidation. Our research found that while cost efficiency is always going to be the key driver, MPS is also a compelling way to reduce risk, improve sustainability and drive business improvement. AUXILIO's MPS program as an independent provider that is vendor neutral with no regard to equipment sales has demonstrated these business process improvement opportunities for its clients routinely.”
“The health care industry is experiencing revolutionary changes with respect to uncovering hidden costs and improving process efficiencies throughout their organizations,” said Joseph J. Flynn, president and chief executive officer of AUXILIO. “We are pleased to be recognized by Quocirca for our unique MPS strategies and solutions that have established our company as a leader in the MPS industry for hospitals and health care systems in the U.S. Our distinct position in the market as vendor neutral and independent is highly regarded by our customers.”
In addition, the report also stated that AUXILIO’s “risk-free model, with no upfront costs and advanced skill and knowledge of EMR readiness strategies by its in-hospital teams, without regard to software product type, should continue to resonate with health care institutions looking to make best use of existing hardware and software investments.”
Entitled Vendor Landscape: Managed Print Services (March 2012), the report states that “independent MPS providers play an important role in delivering impartial assessment services and unbiased MPS recommendations as the provision of multivendor services for break-fix, support, supplies replenishment etc. enables organizations to protect existing hardware investments rather than moving to a single-vendor standardized print environment. Having the flexibility to support devices from multiple vendors, independent MPS providers [such as AUXILIO] can innovate with the latest technology, introduce new capabilities and work with the widest range of print-related equipment vendors to ensure maximum savings.”
AUXILIO is the only MPS company in the U.S. that works exclusively in hospitals and health care systems and which provides full-time, on-site customer service and technical representatives to substantially drive costs down by reducing print volume through its continuous process improvement methodology and expert solutions for optimizing hospital business and operational efficiencies. The company is at the forefront of providing hospitals with specialized knowledge to ensure data security through risk mitigation planning and is a strategy partner as health care shifts to e-records compliance.
Quocirca is a primary research and analysis company specializing in the business impact of information technology and communications (ITC). The 2012 analysis report was released on March 27, 2012.
