Merge Healthcare has announced that InSite One has expanded its contract with Merge to provide a universal viewing solution for their InDex archiving services.
Jim Champagne, president of InSite One, said: “We are excited about joining forces to bring new InDex solutions into additional verticals within the healthcare market. We have shown our combined solution to several HIE organizations and enterprise clients, and our first implementation is already underway.”
Antonia Wells, president of OEM division at Merge, said: “Our continued innovation in imaging software allows us to change the healthcare information distribution paradigm by the intuitive inclusion of images and radiology reports. We are thrilled to work with InSite One, a long-time partner, to bring this innovative solution to the market,”
The new technology provides clinicians and CIOs with a solution that overcomes the challenges associated with the distribution of images over a wide area network. Image distribution solutions typically involve expensive hardware, high IT support/deployment costs, platform compatibility issues and high bandwidth requirements. Using InDex Web, with integrated Cedara WebAccess technology from Merge, physicians are able to obtain patient information via a web browser at the point-of-care through their laptops, tablets and smart phones such as Apple iPhone and Blackberry Bold, said the company.
