  • Merge Healthcare Inc. (MRGE) IConnect Medical Imaging Data Platform Further Embraced By Massive Chicago Multi-Specialty Physician DuPage Medical Group 1 comment
    Feb 15, 2012 5:25 PM | about stocks: MRGE

    Today, Merge Healthcare, the industry veteran with two decades of experience providing healthcare facilities with the cutting-edge in medical enterprise imaging and innovative interoperability solutions for radiology, cardiology, orthopedics, and eye care, announced that the Merge iConnect® Access and the Merge Eye Care suite have been elected by DuPage Medical Group for addition to their solution set.

    DuPage is one of Chicago's biggest multi-specialty independent physician groups and has some 45 locations in the western suburbs, with a staff of some 330 physicians. The massive challenge of delivering images in a timely manner out to the referring physician base, and between staff throughout the operation, is greatly improved with iConnect Access which creates a throughput environment to radically simplify and streamline the process of exchanging critical imaging data.

    Via Merge's integrated suite of software solutions, DuPage Medical Group, which serves one-third of all DuPage County, will enhance their existing platform to simultaneously both eliminate disparate data silos and crystallize a truly seamless imaging environment that spans the entire enterprise. Merge iConnect Access lets physicians throughout the entire network of persons connect seamlessly via the internet using any approved intelligent networked device, making it easy for physicians to rapidly confer/deliberate regarding imaging data irrespective of image type (radiology, cardiology, etc.) thanks to a multi-specialty viewer. No additional software downloads required and seamless integration of devices via a web-based solution.

    CEO of the DuPage Medical Group, Dennis Fine, extolled the benefits of Merge iConnect and explained how they used it to connect silos of imaging data to image-enable their EMR so physicians could rapidly deal with images generated from any specialty, all within a networked environment. This methodology allows for huge collaboration improvements and lets radiologists speed up their workflow dramatically, something Fine is confident will enhance care delivery.

    CEO of MRGE, Jeff Surges, underscored how such implementation of the company's technology to successfully execute on an "enterprise-wide imaging strategy" helps to increase the density of the very foundations upon which healthcare is provided, improving how care is delivered to the end user. Surges' comments were not lost on industry analysts when he detailed this as a perfect case history and example, saying that the large and complex DuPage Medical Group now has an end-to-end solution that integrates with their Epic EMR, giving DuPage radiologists unprecedented workflow, ease of use, and access when it comes to handling patient medical records.

    This is vital to overall success in any given situation for radiologists because time is a huge factor and it is difficult as it is to handle the nuanced, unique requirements of providing patient care. Access to data and the ability to exchange that data rapidly within a unified environment that is intuitive cannot be overstated in its importance.

    Merge Eye Care Solutions provide a comprehensive backdrop for ophthalmic image and informatics, granting eye care specialists a huge boost to process efficiencies and substantially improving the results of their effort. The portable Merge EyeScan™ imaging device is part of this series and has an extremely modular design for both anterior and posterior segments, is easy to use, yet provides great diagnostics. Other offerings like the Merge Eye Station™ (capture software and interface for extant fundus cameras) and Merge Eye Care PACS™ (web-based image management) complete the package with comprehensive tools to make working with critical data even easier.
