AUXILIO Releases a Health Care Industry White Paper on Supply Chain Leadership and Strategies that Drive Savings
AUXILIO, Inc. (OTCBB: AUXO), the nation's leading Managed Print Services (MPS) company for health care, today announced the release of a white paper for health care executives wanting to capture significant savings through supply chain initiatives that reduce print-related expenses and inefficiencies in a hospital's document production processes.
The white paper, entitled “MINDING THE STORE: Hospital Supply Chain Executives Should ‘Think Print' to Drive Down Costs and Inefficiencies”, provides important and timely industry research about the millions of dollars in waste hospitals and hospital systems incur each and every year as a result of unnecessary printing and an unmanaged document production process. The white paper also examines the reasons why forward-thinking hospitals are adopting comprehensive, vendor neutral Managed Print Services (MPS) programs as a proven strategy to streamline a hospital's print environment in order to control costs, maximize efficiencies, reduce volume and integrate technology and devices to ensure maximum interoperability.
“The cost of supplies and services is second only to the cost of labor for hospitals and represents nearly half of the average hospital's operating budget,” said Joseph J. Flynn, president and chief executive officer of AUXILIO. “As a result, hospital executives have targeted the supply chain as a primary source to achieve much-needed cost reductions without sacrificing the quality of patient care. Products and services, most notably those related to document production, are the low-hanging fruit that can effectively be streamlined through a vendor-independent MPS program, which can reduce spending by upwards of 20%, improve operational efficiencies and lead to overall improved business health for health care organizations.”
As the only vendor neutral, health care exclusive MPS company in the country, AUXILIO provides full-time, on-site teams of customer service and technical representatives to its hospital customers. It is at the forefront of providing specialized knowledge of hospital print environments that ensures cost reduction through continuous process improvements and strategies to reduce the production of documents substantially. Since December 2011, the company has doubled the number of hospitals in its national portfolio and provides its services to thousands of affiliated clinical and administrative facilities. The newly designed business development strategy and structure will expand upon its reach in the U.S. health care industry and provide rapid response to the growing interest by hospital administrator in its MPS program that will save in excess of $70 million for its current hospital customers over the next three to five years.
