Original Press Release:
TROY SecureRx Revolutionizes Prescription Printing
CMS compliant prescriptions on plain paper
COSTA MESA, Calif., Dec. 2 /-- TROY Group, Inc. (Pink Sheets: TROY), a worldwide leader in secure on-demand printing solutions, announces the first digital printer for printing the federally mandated security features onto plain laser bond paper. The TROY SecureRx printer allows healthcare providers to significantly reduce the cost of printing prescriptions while complying with the security regulations established by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The fully configured TROY 3005 SecureRx printer uses the HP LaserJet P3005 printer as its foundation and provides customers 35 pages per minute print speed. Ideal for printing prescriptions and patient discharge documents, the TROY SecureRx printer can be used to print any other documents in hospitals, ambulatory facilities, and clinical environments. Healthcare providers can choose from a fully configured TROY SecureRx printer or purchase a TROY SecureRx firmware module to upgrade existing HP P3005 LaserJet printers.
This printer was developed to help hospitals comply with the new regulations that went into effect on October 1, 2008 requiring prescriptions be issued with copy-evident, erasure-evident and anti-counterfeit security features, to be eligible for CMS reimbursement. The TROY SecureRx printing solution includes HP-authorized security enhancements from TROY providing on-demand printable features that meet and exceed all three of the security features required by CMS.
TROY security enhancements include the new TROY copy prevention pantograph technology, patents pending, as well as TROY customizable micro-print font which helps to address the need for copy-evident features. TROYmark(TM), variable print watermark, is an industry recognized feature that provides the erasure-evident feature. A warning indicator, which is built into each prescription, provides the anti-counterfeit security features required by CMS.
"Healthcare providers have told to us that the TROY SecureRx printer is an investment which is easy to justify," states Larry Landtiser, Senior Vice President and General Manager of TROY Group, Inc. "The TROY SecureRx printer eliminates the need for expensive prescription paper, dedicated prescription printers, and the labor intensive costs associated with chain of custody management of prescription forms, and companies are able to see a return on their investment within months of purchasing."
For an even higher level of security and prevention against alteration of prescriptions, TROY recommends using TROY Security Toner, an anti-fraud technology which forces a bright red stain to appear if chemical alteration is attempted. This addition to the SecureRx solution provides the benefits of chemically sensitive paper at a fraction of the cost.
The TROY 3005 SecureRx printer is the first in the series of TROY SecureRx solutions to be introduced. To complete the solution, TROY provides full software integration support to any Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system.
