Two BLI PaceSetter Awards Honor the Company’s Leading Healthcare-Relevant Products, Solutions, and Services
Ramsey, NJ, Feb. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) is pleased to announce that its leading healthcare technologies have been recognized by Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab (BLI), winning two prestigious BLI PaceSetter Awards in Healthcare, for the Hospital Networks and Group Practices categories.
“Healthcare providers, at every level, face mounting pressures to improve care and reduce medical errors, adhere to strict patient-privacy mandates, ensure security and regulatory compliance, move from paper records to electronic ones, and trim costs wherever possible,” said Jamie Bsales, Director, Solutions Analysis at Keypoint Intelligence. “Today’s multi-faceted document imaging vendors offer more than just printing hardware. They are uniquely positioned to help address these challenges with solutions and services that streamline processes and bring together the worlds of paper-based and electronic information.
Konica Minolta is distinctly recognized in both the Hospital Networks and Group Practices categories. This is attributed to the synergy of its healthcare-specific technologies, supported by the All Covered IT Services division, Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas’ medical equipment, and Konica Minolta’s portfolio of document imaging hardware and software. This includes bizhub® SECURE Healthcare, Healthcare MFPs, and Dispatcher Phoenix for Healthcare. The recognition in the Hospital Networks category was also received in 2017, but this is the first year for Konica Minolta to be recognized in the Group Practices category, further emphasizing the company’s dedication to holistic offerings for healthcare.
The awards are based on unique research analysis by Buyers Lab, evaluating the strengths of document imaging OEMs. Specifically, the analysis focuses on eight key areas: Hardware, Software, Service and Support, Professional Services, Security, Industry Certifications, Vertical Leadership, and Overall Value.
“At Konica Minolta, we understand the needs and challenges of healthcare organizations and continuously work together to lead the way in providing technologies that matter most to them now, while preparing them for a better future,” commented Nick Pegley, Senior Vice President, Solutions and Services, Konica Minolta. “So, to be acknowledged for our accomplishments, not just in one group but two groups, we are incredibly honored and grateful to Keypoint Intelligence’s Buyers Lab. It certainly inspires us to make greater strides for the future of the healthcare industry.”
The awards will be officially presented next week at Konica Minolta’s booth (#5745) during the HIMSS Global Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Florida, where there will be a prominent gathering of healthcare leaders and professionals. This suitably complements the stage for Konica Minolta’s Healthcare Technology Showcase there, which will feature key solutions and services that support healthcare priorities in the ever-evolving landscape.
