Canon and Meditech Clear the Way for Hassle-free Hospital Scanning, Copying and Printing

Press Release   •   Oct 27, 2010 09:26 BST

Canon, the award-winning provider of imaging solutions, last week announced that leading Health Care Information Systems (HCIS) Company, Meditech, has been able to include a vast range of Canon imaging devices - including scanners, copiers and MFP’s - into its supported devices list for use in conjunction with the Meditech MAGIC platform. Devices from across Canon’s ranges have been given the Meditech seal of approval, including the imageRUNNER range, the impressive imageRUNNER Advance series and the award-winning imagePRESS production presses. This effectively means that the large majority of Canon’s commercial reprographics devices - and crucially its core ranges of all-in-one scanners/photocopiers/printers - are now compatible with one of the world’s major medical software platforms that's being used in hospitals, clinics and other healthcare institutions. Clients from across the healthcare sector can now rest-assured when looking for scan/scanning, copying and /or faxing functionality that Canon devices can be easily integrated into their existing technological/IT environment.

About the Meditech MAGIC Platform

More than 1500 healthcare organisations worldwide use the Meditech MAGIC operating system. It is an active, dynamic technology platform for healthcare organisations who seek simple structured programming.

Some of the commonly-cited benefits of the Meditech MAGIC platform include a straightforward graphical user interface making all applications easy to access and simple to use. It also provides rationalised network administration options and enables users to perform multiple tasks alongside one another.

Meditech MAGIC operating system is designed to operate effectively in ‘Open System’ scenarios. MAGIC is able to run on a variety of hardware platforms allowing customers to mix devices and even hardware brands in their networks and to incorporate new technologies as they are deployed. In addition, TCP/IP capabilities enable Meditech MAGIC applications to communicate freely in multi-vendor networks. As TCP/IP is increasingly recognised as the standard for linking different computer technologies in networks and uses standard network protocols, it creates a very open architecture.

By supporting the latest hardware form the leading computer manufacturers, Meditech MAGIC has been able to dramatically increase the power available to users of its operating platform.
