“Ricoh continues to develop and acquire technologies and hire healthcare experts who understand today’s business challenges,” according to the company press release.

HIMSS attendees will see Ricoh’s innovations within the Intelligent Health Pavilion, where the company serves as a platinum sponsor, and in booth 7321, where its consulting services team will discuss analytics, file analysis and other needs organizations are seeking to improve and measure information workflow.

“Making data secure and accessible empowers exceptional care.
