November 26, 2014 — ClearDATA and Merge Healthcare Inc. announced that ClearDATA will be the cloud-computing provider for Merge Healthcare's new Merge One solution. Merge One brings ambulatory radiology sites the ability to power their entire business in a cloud environment. The new solution will be introduced at the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) annual conference in Chicago, Nov. 30-Dec. 5.
Merge Healthcare will offer secure application hosting to its customers on ClearDATA's HIPAA-compliant HealthDATA cloud platform. This will enable Merge One customers to 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, enhances security and enables imaging centers to scale on demand without restriction.
Key components of the Merge One cloud-based solution include: radiology information system (RIS), picture archiving and communication system (PACS), billing, universal viewer, document management and business analytics. Merge One also comes pre-configured to add solutions for dictation, referring physician engagement, patient portal electronic ordering and clinical decision support.
