VA West Palm Beach Chooses DISCO – Digital Secure Copy to eliminate paper-based Release of Information!  

September 26, 2013

The VA West Palm Beach, FL has joined others, in the VA Healthcare System, by choosing DISCO – Digital Secure Copy for automated and encrypted Release of Information on CD.

“We are very pleased that more VA hospitals will implement DISCO for digital Release of Information”, says Nancy Fisher, President and CEO of Data Distributing. “These hospitals process a very large amount of paper ROIs and want to dramatically reduce the cost of paper, toner, copier expense and manual operations, while protecting the privacy and integrity of patient information with encryption. DISCO was customized to work with VISTA and automatically create copies on CD, thermally print the labels and encrypt the patient information. DISCO can help the VA satisfy new HITECH ACT requirements as well as energy saving and green technology recommendations”.


DISCO is an intelligent, digital (ROI) chart copy solution that produces patient record copies on disc for medical records departments whether they are EMR-based, paper-based, or a hybrid of both. DISCO performs HL7 queries and retrieves patient information from the HIS or EMR, creating on-demand digital copies of either full charts or specific encounters, and burns the patient data to a Rimage Disc Publishing system. The unique software also protects the security of the data. Additionally, DISCO indelibly prints the appropriate patient data directly on the CD for easy identification and quick shipment.
