02 Jun Merge Healthcare is expanding its portfolio of imaging solutions
MILWAUKEE – Merge Healthcare (NASDAQ: MRGE), a health IT solutions provider, is expanding its portfolio of eCommerce diagnostic imaging solutions with the eFilm Archive. This extensive archive will be used by imaging centers, specialty clinics and rural hospitals to increase their storage capacity for medical images and enable image routing.
“We were thrilled to see the addition of eFilm Archive to the eFilm line,” says Steve Michaud, Management Information Systems Analyst for Arizona Kidney Disease and Hypertension Center, LLC. “We’d been shopping for an economical image management solution, and eFilm Archive made perfect sense. As a seasoned eFilm user, the solution was intuitive and easy to deploy. Equally as important, it was also within our budget.”
Because eFilm Archive uses the same hardware and software configurations as Merge’s hosted RIS/PACS solutions, it also provides customers with an affordable mechanism for adding applications like Radiology Information Systems (RIS), disaster recovery and billing. These add-ons create essential information for electronic health records (EHRs) and help meet the future growth demands for an imaging business.
“As Mr. Michaud mentioned, our eFilm Workstation customers who currently lack a centralized archive welcome this addition to the eFilm product line,” states Nancy Koenig, President of Merge’s Fusion business unit. “We built the solution based on their need for economical, complete and easy-to-use archive functionality, and customers are already expressing confidence that this solution will provide them with an immediate return by helping them better manage their digital images.”
