Porter Hospital Selects Merge Healthcare iConnect Image Interoperablity Solution

Merge Healthcare , a leading provider of enterprise imaging and interoperability solutions, announced today that Porter Hospital will install the iConnect image interoperability solution suite at its 300-bed facility to simplify image viewing from within their EMR.

Jeff Surges, CEO, Merge Healthcare said, iConnect is streamlining the clinical workflow for physicians, which in turn leads to an improvement in the way care will be delivered.  It does so by providing real-time access, regardless of the multiple applications in which the images may be stored, eliminating the need to burn CDs and by integrating among all specialties.

iConnect delivers a zero-download DICOM and XDS viewer that provides access to medical images from any approved Web-enabled device for referring physicians. With iConnect, images can be accessed faster and easier because there no longer is a need to download images to a PC. Hospital physicians and referring physicians can now view images in real time anywhere, any time.
