Plain Paper Prescription Printing

Meet Rx requirements using plain paper 

Ricoh icon insert of Healthcare

From 2007 to 2010, 48.5% of people in the U.S. reported using at least one prescription drug in the last month.*


You need to meet Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandates for securing prescriptions. Our Plain Paper Prescription Printing software helps you get there by applying CMS-compliant security features — using regular paper and your own printers. 


Switch to plain paper prescriptions 

Replace costly Rx solutions with a simple, affordable alternative. 

Doctor writing a prescription.

You pay a lot, both in direct costs and administrative/IT time, for "secure" paper prescriptions. Each page is watermarked, carries a serial number, costs up to $.25 and requires dedicated printers. What's the alternative? Our flexible, affordable Plain Paper Prescription solution, which allows you to:

  •  Eliminate the need for expensive paper.
  •  Use nearly any laser printer, removing your reliance on specialized printers with locking drawers.
  •  Reduce the burden on your hospital's human resources.

Save space and money 

Help comply with CMS requirements and centralize prescription oversight.

CMS has strict requirements for printed prescriptions. You have to make sure they can't be copied, erased, modified or counterfeited. When you use the special paper, you have to guard it from the time it's delivered to the time it's placed in a locked print tray. That adds up to a lot of administrative, purchasing, supply chain and IT involvement.

Instead, you can:

  • Implement software that works with your current printers and provides CMS-mandated security features.
  • Track print jobs and store data in a central location, making it possible to trace the origin of each prescription.

Our healthcare team provides upfront analysis, consulting, design and implementation of a customized solution built around PlanetPress software.
