18 Sep Merge releases next gen web portal
Merge Healthcare has released FusionWeb, a zero-client software platform that enables secure Web access for the real-time exchange of patient information, procedure reports and digital images. The first FusionWeb application developed specifically for referring clinicians gives radiology providers of any size a cost-effective means of improving system interoperability and workflow efficiency, and delivers on the common desire for an image enabled electronic health record (EHR).
The zero client software works without the need to install or maintain special visualization devices or software plug-ins. Anyone with a secured logon can access work lists and images, according to Merge.
FusionWeb gives hospitals and imaging centers the ability to include diagnostic images as part of a patient’s EHR regardless of browser type, operating platform or security policies; and without the need to install or maintain subsequent visualization devices or software plug-ins. Not only does the availability of images provide referring physicians a more comprehensive view of each patient case, but it also enables an extremely fluid interaction between health care partners in providing treatment.
“Fusion Web is a significant expansion of Merge’s vision of interoperability and clinical systems integration, and will definitively improve the exchange of medical images and information,” says Tim Kulbago, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Development for Merge Healthcare.
