HIMSS Annual Conference Brings Together Health and IT Thought Leaders to Drive Health and Healthcare Transformation Through Innovation and Collaboration

COLUMBUS, OHIO – January 24, 2016 – Scriptel® Corporation (Scriptel), a long-time provider of electronic signature solutions and capacitive pen digitizing components, today announced their participation at HIMSS 17 as an exhibitor in partnership with ePaper Limited, February 19 – 23, 2017 in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center.

“The Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition is very impressive in both attendance and content. This is our first time exhibiting at HIMSS and we are looking forward to gaining valuable insights from the attendees and other exhibitors while showing them how Scriptel signature capture pads can help healthcare take an important step to becoming truly paperless. Scriptel has been very successful in the past year with both large and small healthcare organizations due to our partnerships with important EHR and practice management software providers and our strong attention to best-in-industry service and support. We look forward to our continuing strong growth in healthcare,” said Stephan Herron, President and Chief Executive Officer of Scriptel Corporation.

The HIMSS17 conference brings together more than 40,000 health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world to enjoy an exceptional breadth of educational opportunities, while showcasing cutting-edge health IT products.

“We know the HIMSS Annual Conference is where the brightest minds in health and IT meet, and our exhibit floor offers the latest technologies and education sessions to help generate new ideas during the conference. In addition, the exhibition floor is open three days, at least eight hours each day, during HIMSS17, so that exhibitors have more time to meet with attendees. We are always honored to welcome all of our exhibitors to the conference, and appreciate their contributions to our collaborative efforts to transform health and healthcare with IT,” said Karen Malone, Vice President, Meeting Services, HIMSS North America.

As the healthcare industry continues to transition into the digital world, electronic signature is becoming a key component of many organization’s workflows and document management strategy. Scriptel’s experience in eSignature and software integration reflects the organization’s commitment to the healthcare industry. Many leading software providers for the healthcare industry have chosen to partner and integrate with Scriptel’s rugged and reliable eSignature products to provide their users with the best options available today.

“Scriptel is focused on reducing the amount of paper used in business. We have been helping organizations from large hospitals to small practices to break the ‘print-sign-scan cycle’ for years with our signature capture pads that effectively eliminate the need for scanners during the registration and consent process. Now we have the right solution to work on reducing the print waste as well. I am proud to announce a partnership with ePaper Ltd. which will magnify the impact Scriptel can have in helping the healthcare industry lower its costs and improve information security by reducing paper usage. With the Sentinel product from ePaper, we can help our customers focus on this problem that not only affects the environment but also the bottom line,” Herron continued.

In addition to eSignature products, Scriptel will be introducing Sentinel from ePaper to the healthcare IT market through its mpScriptel brand. Sentinel is an intelligent print solution that will provide facilities with as much as a 40% cost reduction in print output. Sentinel provides secure pull printing that requires a user to identify himself at the printer before the job will print and includes toner saving and tools to track printer usage and enforce printing rules and limits. If the user is not there to pick it up, the job won’t print. This eliminates a lot of wasted paper at the typical business and also provides a high level of information security as a “your-eyes-only” printing solution.
