Merge Healthcare introduces the next generation of image-enabled web portal technology


Merge Healthcare, announced the release of FusionWeb™, a revolutionary 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).

Christine Keefe, Chief Financial Officer at Metro Imaging, LLC of St. Louis, Missouri, a FusionWeb beta site said, After experiencing FusionWeb, we are certain it will bring our referring physician practices and our hospital partners the flexibility and accessibility to consolidate workflow and get through their day with much more efficiency.

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.
