Our Source Technologies experts engineer solutions to help healthcare providers reduce the risk of fraud and deliver information to patients and staff in a timely manner.
Prescription drugs account for the second-most commonly abused category of drugs, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). With U.S. prescription fraud costing nearly $5 billion annually, state and local governments are beginning to play a more active role in reducing the risk of prescription fraud by passing legislation to deter counterfeiting and forgery. Source Technologies has been helping businesses fight fraud for more than 25 years using secure printing solutions. These solutions are a natural fit to combat prescription fraud because the problem lies in the creation of fake prescriptions.
Our laser printers incorporate physical and electronic protection features to increase the security inherent in the prescription printing process. Limit access to prescription paper with the use of physical locks. Disable reprint capabilities and restrict access to the prescription-writing process utilizing passcodes. More than a dozen physical and data security features work together to virtually eliminate the risk of fraud. The more security features employed when printing prescriptions, the more difficult it will be for prescription fraud to occur.
In the healthcare setting, “confidential” refers to any kind of time- or information-sensitive documents.
