Dayton, OH, United States, 2011/12/19 - Plus Technologies announced that Wellmont Health System has selected its OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) software along with Lexmark’s Tamper-Resistant Rx Solution and printers.
Plus Technologies is pleased to announce that Wellmont Health System has selected its OM Plus Delivery Manager (DM) software along with Lexmark’s Tamper-Resistant Rx Solution and printers to increase security and compliance of Wellmont’s prescription printing.
Wellmont Health System was looking for a cost effective way to meet the strict requirements defined in the 2007 CMS Tamper-Resistant Prescription Law. The law requires that printed prescriptions have a number of tamper-resistant security features in order to prevent fraudulent acts. In addition, Wellmont was hoping to save cost by moving from expensive ‘pre-printed’ forms to an electronic forms software solution that prints on plain paper.
Wellmont Health System found the necessary solution from Plus Technologies and Lexmark International. With the Plus Technologies/Lexmark electronic forms solution, Wellmont is able to realize savings by moving to a plain paper solution. In addition, the forms software embeds pantographic information into the background of printed prescriptions, so the words “COPY” or “VOID” appear when the prescription is copied. There are also anti-erasure and anti-print ‘liftoff’ features to prevent modifications to the original prescription. Print jobs including prescriptions originate on a McKesson Health Care application server.
• OM Plus DM seamlessly ingests the McKesson print jobs without any changes required in the McKesson application.
• OM Plus DM analyzes the print jobs and picks out the prescription print jobs while letting the non-prescription jobs pass directly on to the printers.
• For prescription jobs, OM Plus DM strips print commands used in the old pre-printed forms solution. OM Plus DM then integrates the standard prescription print data with the Lexmark Tamper-Resistant Rx electronic form.
• Then the complete prescription print job is delivered to the Lexmark printer.
• OM Plus DM also confirms the successful printing of the prescriptions by using bi-directional communications with the printer.
• In the case of printer error, OM Plus DM allows page level fail-over re-printing.
• System administrators also use OM Plus to view and manage the entire process.
By going with this solution, the customer now has a high fidelity prescription printing process that is more reliable, easily managed and more cost effective. The Lexmark Tamper–Resistant Rx Solution licensing cost per printer is about half of comparable competitive solutions.
Wellmont was also able to reduce their printer hardware acquisition/support cost because the standard Lexmark printers are less expensive then “special purpose” printers. Finally the solution can be easily modified to adapt to future needs which might include managing and monitoring the delivery of non-prescription print jobs from many different application servers out to their enterprise printer fleet.
Plus Technologies and Lexmark have been partners since 2002 and have provided numerous print solutions to a variety of industries. The combination of OM Plus DM software and Lexmark’s Tamper-Resistant Rx solution and printers has enabled Wellmont Health System to cost effectively print prescriptions while abiding by the CMS Tamper-Resistant Prescription Law.
