MISSION VIEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AUXILIO, Inc. (AUXO.OB), the health care industry’s leader in Managed Print Services (MPS), is projected to save its U.S. hospital customers over $70 million within the next five years by reducing print-related costs and excessive volume through improved process efficiencies and supply chain management.
“Hospitals are historically paper-intensive organizations, and are under pressure to identify areas of inefficiencies to cut costs without compromising patient care,” said Joseph J. Flynn, president and CEO of AUXILIO, Inc. “The key to reducing print costs is to continuously manage the process of document production through end-user education, controlling the spend in the supply chain and initiating sustainability programs to better manage the volume.”
According to a key finding by Thomson Reuters about waste in health care, “the large volume of redundant paperwork in the U.S healthcare system accounts for $100 billion to $150 billion in spending annually.1 To control these unnecessary and often hidden costs in the production of documents, it is imperative to manage the print workflow process and supply chain and service costs, which AUXILIO does at a guaranteed reduction of up to 30% for its customers. To gain these efficiencies and savings for its national portfolio of over 80 hospitals, the company’s cost-cutting and volume reduction methodology is customized and includes placing full-time, on-site print management experts and technical personnel to drive operational efficiencies and lead sustainability initiatives. As the only vendor neutral, health care exclusive MPS company in the U.S., AUXILIO has been working in health care since 2004. Its unique solutions are resulting in millions of dollars in savings for its customers.
AUXILIO is a Managed Print Services Association (MPSA) 2011 and 2012 Leadership Award recipient for its “strategic creativity and operational excellence”, and cited as an MPS best-of-breed company by Quocirca research analysts for its “risk-free model, with no upfront costs and advanced skill and knowledge of EMR readiness strategies for health care” organizations seeking best practices to control costs and manage existing hardware and software investments.
