Through the use of UniPrint’s Universal Printer Driver, along with the PrintPal printer mapping utility, printer management and printing became so simple that help desk printing support dropped to 1-2 calls per week.

With a significant number of VON Canada employees working from home or other remote locations, there were no set standards for printers on the network.

UniPrint Improves Clinical Workflow and Enhances Security for TRMC
Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, a 185-bed nationally recognized, award winning medical center in Thibodaux, Louisiana invested in a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to create a mobile environment for their physicians and care teams as well as relieve IT burden.

The printer mapping in their existing MEDITECH version depends on the location where the provider initially accessed the system, and it does not recognize when they move to a new location. UniPrint’s location-based printing resolved this problem because it maps MEDITECH print jobs to whichever printer is closest to the user’s endpoint. There is no need to find a printer from a list, and print jobs consistently print and arrive at the correct location.
