― Logi-D

March 7, 2012.

Logi-D, a leading healthcare supply chain automation solutions provider, and Diebold, Incorporated, global leader in providing integrated self-service delivery and security systems and services, officially announced at this year’s HIMSS Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada, that they have entered into a strategic partnership. The partnership will see Diebold provide maintenance services to Logi-D customers and will focus on the companies leveraging each other’s presence by co-marketing their solutions. As such, Logi-D was on hand at the Diebold booth throughout the conference, meeting and speaking with visitors looking for supply chain automation solutions. 

Offering a comprehensive, best-in-class line of service solutions, Diebold employs more than 4,500 experienced technicians across North America. This infrastructure will be made available as needed to support the Logi-D supply chain automation solutions in healthcare institutions. 

The companies believe that in certain situations, combining Diebold experience in technology and data security with Logi-D knowledge of integrated hospital supply chain best practices will lead to solutions that will improve customers’ operating margins while enhancing data security. The first facet of the partnership will be to match Diebold expertise in user interfacing, through its kiosk and ATM experience, to further advance the already robust Logi-D point of use patient charging solution. 

Richard Philippe, Founder and CEO of Logi-D, commented, “We are extremely pleased to partner with Diebold, as it has built a solid reputation through its quality servicing of technology, an aspect that has always been key in supporting our installations. This partnership will help Logi-D expand its geographic coverage and client service offerings while supporting its fast-paced North American development.” 

World renowned in the finance industry, Diebold has put its extensive experience to work in the healthcare industry by offering solutions to simplify transactions such as payments and admissions, protect patient privacy with information security services, and help ensure the safety and security of hospitals and other healthcare facilities. 

“Collaborating with Logi-D is another step to help us deliver solutions that help hospitals improve efficiency and avoid revenue loss,” said Dave Byrd, vice president, general manager, Diebold Healthcare. “With hospitals making efforts to streamline operations and reduce expenses without compromising patient care, the solutions enabled by our partnership will provide invaluable time-saving and data-accuracy benefits.”
