Merge One is a cloud-based system.

December 2, 2014 — Merge Healthcare Incorporated has announced the launch of its new Merge One solution, to be introduced at RSNA 2014. Merge One brings ambulatory radiology sites the ability to power their entire business in an easy-to-manage, cloud-based environment. With a focus on giving customers a low-cost structure through per-transaction pricing, Merge One provides imaging centers with a new option to maintain and build business in today’s competitive market. 
 
“With Merge One we challenged ourselves to create a solution that simultaneously maximizes Merge technology, built through years of innovative development, best practices workflow through our extensive customer experience and practical knowledge of SaaS — all at the lowest possible cost structure,” said Justin Dearborn, CEO at Merge Healthcare.
 
The Merge One cloud-based solution comes pre-configured with components needed for imaging centers to power their entire business: radiology information system (RIS), picture archiving and communication System (PACS), financial system, universal viewer, cloud archive, document management and business analytics. Merge One offers additional industry-leading workflow solutions for dictation, referring physician engagement, patient portal and patient payments.   
 
“Imaging centers continue to operate in an extremely challenging economic environment – with continued reimbursement pressures from both Medicare and private payers as value-based purchasing efforts continue to evolve,” added Steven Tolle, Chief Strategy Officer for Merge Healthcare.  “Issues like the ICD-10 regulatory mandate and platform obsolescence can force technology upgrades that they simply cannot afford. Merge One  gives them the ability to not only procure the latest technology in a cost-effective manner, but also stay ahead of the curve as market changes continue to take place.”
 
In partnership with ClearDATA, the healthcare industry leader in secure, HIPAA-compliant cloud computing, customers eliminate the need to purchase expensive hardware and reduce reliance on hired or contracted IT staff for ongoing support. This shortens implementation times, improves reliability, and enables imaging centers to scale on demand without restriction.
 
“Merge is the market leader through superior innovation and service, and we are thrilled to be the underpinnings of this meaningful radiology upgrade that will significantly help transform healthcare by reducing costs, enhancing outcomes and improving access,” said Darin Brannan, CEO at ClearDATA.
