February 18, 2014 — HIT Application Solutions announced a partnership with Merge Healthcare Inc. to integrate its Notifi platform with Merge RIS, a Meaningful Use (MU) outpatient radiology information system. The solution, to be marketed as Merge Notifi, will initially automate appointment reminders and make patient results available through messages for Merge customers. Merge Notifi is a HIPPA compliant service.
To allow for patient results available messaging and critical test result management, Merge will integrate Merge Notifi within Merge RIS and Merge PACS, a real-time picture archiving communication system. In addition, the companies are looking into options to integrate the solution into Merge Cardiology Solutions and the iConnect Enterprise Clinical Platform.
Notifi is an enterprise-wide, intelligent communication engine that automates alert and notification processes involving event-driven parameters across the continuum of care. By filtering incoming information to identify what is important and prioritizing delivery based on criticality, the solution aims to resolve some communication challenges both within and outside the walls of the healthcare enterprise.
