SPRINGFIELD, Ill., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Output management software provider Levi, Ray & Shoup, Inc. (LRS) announced the successful deployment of its VPSX® solution at Edward Hospital & Health Services (Edward) in Naperville, Illinois. Based in the western suburbs of Chicago, the full-service regional healthcare provider implemented LRS® software to ease print management and healthcare document delivery from the hospital's newly-installed Epic® applications.
"When we began discussions with LRS, we had a narrow time window and were nearing a critical stage in preparation for our Epic rollout," says Bobbie Byrne, CIO of Edward Hospital. "LRS was able to quickly deploy a solution in less than a month to help us serve our large patient population. We needed an integrated system that provided seamless delivery of Epic-generated documents, thus ensuring an uninterrupted continuum of care to the communities we serve. LRS worked with our IT personnel to make it happen."
The LRS solution provides reliable delivery of key documents as well as a desktop interface to manage output from the Epic application to more than 1,400 printers throughout Edward Hospital and its affiliate care centers in the Chicago area. Edward joins nearly 30 other health systems in the U.S. using LRS as part of their Epic environments.
