Merge eFilm Builds Distribution Channel

MILWAUKEE, WI - - Merge Technologies Incorporated has signed agreements with four European companies to resell or distribute Merge eFilm's FUSION RIS/PACS and eFilm Workstation solutions. These full-service healthcare solution firms will increase the availability of Merge eFilm's products and services throughout European healthcare organisations. The healthcare analysts Frost & Sullivan have estimated the European Medical Image Management annual growth to be 25% per year, reaching US$704.5 million in 2004. Merge eFilm's FUSION RIS/PACS software and professional services are designed to meet the needs of this growing European market.

"We partner with companies that have a depth of understanding of medical image and information workflow. That level of comprehension optimises the flexibility of FUSION RIS/PACS and eFilm Workstation to configure the precise solution that is needed for the customer's workflow," said William Stafford, Vice-President of OEM/VAR Sales. "In addition, the quality of service that these partners provide will assure that users will have a positive, supportive and successful transition from paper and film-based operations to enterprise-wide digital image and information workflow."

The new FUSION RIS/PACS value added resellers include Leuag A.G., Stans, Switzerland; DuMed A/S, Herning, Denmark; and Softgate GmbH, Erlangen, Germany. Hospital Services Limited, Dublin, Ireland, will distribute eFilm Workstation.
