Chicago – September 13, 2017 – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently reviewed Pharos Systems' Blueprint® Enterprise product using the Peer Review process. After undergoing the rigorous review, Blueprint Enterprise has been awarded the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation. Blueprint Enterprise includes Secure Release Here®, Pharos Beacon® Fleet Manager, Toner Savings and Mobile Print.

Pharos Blueprint Enterprise helps healthcare organizations establish a baseline of their print environment, report on paper-intensive users and processes, and identify the greatest opportunities to reduce costs and operate more efficiently. The software is easy-to-implement, manage, and customizable to provide users with deep insights and actionable analytics necessary to turn knowledge into significant and measurable savings. Blueprint Enterprise then helps automate the realization of savings.

“Our service to healthcare organizations is critically important to us,” says Pharos Systems CEO Kevin Pickhardt. “Receiving the ‘Peer Reviewed by HFMA’ designation is an honor that inspires us. It reinforces our commitment to help healthcare agencies and hospitals reduce their printing costs and waste so they can re-direct those savings to their primary mission—improving patient outcomes and well-being.”

HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a Peer Review panel review comprising current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. The Peer Review status of the healthcare business solution and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

“We’re pleased to have Pharos Systems achieve their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation,” says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed healthcare business solution meets an objective, third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value."
