Lexmark application helps hospitals access critical documents during system or network downtime
LEXINGTON, Ky., March 1-- Lexmark International, Inc. (NYSE:LXK) will showcase Lexmark Downtime Reports, the first printer-based healthcare downtime solution, at the 2010 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference being held in Atlanta. The solution, which gives hospitals 24/7 access to critical forms and reports, even if their hospital information systems fail or the network goes down, will be demonstrated on the show floor at the Lexmark booth #8215 starting today through March 3.
Lexmark Downtime Reports provides healthcare providers with a cost-effective alternative to purchasing dedicated PCs and printers for printing vital documents during downtime events. The application stores reports, forms and other important documents on the printer or multifunction product's (MFP) encrypted hard drive. Once stored, these PDF documents are available and updated on a periodic basis. This enables clinicians to access critical documents when a downtime event occurs.
In addition to storing blank forms and reports, organizations may optionally choose to store forms barcoded with patient IDs and form types. This allows for efficient auto-indexing when scanning documents to help expedite updates to a patient's electronic record after the system or network is back up.
"Healthcare providers need access to forms and information at a moment's notice, even during a scheduled or unscheduled network outage," said Marty Canning, Lexmark vice president and president of its Printing Solutions and Services Division. "Available on Lexmark's award-winning line of laser printers and MFPs, Lexmark Downtime Reports is designed to make information accessible when it is needed, helping healthcare providers deal with the unexpected and deliver uninterrupted patient care."

-- Lexmark Print Release is an access control security solution that lets
you send print jobs from a workstation, tablet PC or Mobile Wireless

or MFP. Print Release protects confidential information by requiring
you to authenticate at the device before your print jobs will be
released. The solution supports a variety of authentication options,
including proximity badges and magnetic stripe cards.

highly secure document management platform. The solution improves
