Patient document exchange challenges motivate Konica / Kno2 partnership

Konica Minolta, ranked #1 in customer loyalty in the multifunction printer (MFP) office copier market for 10 consecutive years, and recipient of the first annual BLI Health System Pacesetter Award, recently announced that it has expanded its partnership with Kno2, the company that optimizes patient document exchange for everyone in healthcare. The partnership fortifies Konica Minolta’s leading role in delivering meaningful electronic connectivity in healthcare as a much-needed replacement for fax. Konica Minolta integrates Kno2’s interoperability platform into the bizhub MFP control panel as a core function under the option “Share Patient Information.”

Healthcare legislation, changing reimbursement models and quality reporting require effective, efficient and secure sharing of patient documents. The Konica Minolta healthcare MFP is engineered specifically to address these driving forces for healthcare providers that are not connected due to the following challenges: 1) paper-based patient charting system of records, 2) non-certified EMR implementation, or 3) lack of connectivity due to delayed capital-intensive technology investments.

Healthcare represents a large vertical market for Konica Minolta. Connecting care providers establishes the footprint upon which Konica Minolta’s distribution partners will sell additional healthcare document-related solutions.
