Merge’s New Software Application Designed to Help Orthopaedic Surgeons

July 27, 2007 - Merge Healthcare recently introduced Merge Ortho, a digital workstation solution that reportedly helps orthopaedic specialists save time and improve clinical effectiveness in orthopaedic planning and diagnosis.

Designed to replace the cost and complexities of using film, this solution’s advanced digital tools streamline workflow with image acquisition and manipulation and includes advanced measurement options, implant selection, automated template placement and manipulation, surgical planning tools, image archiving and Web distribution. In addition Merge Ortho includes several data mining tools, including those for tracking and analyzing implant usage, pain thresholds, recovery rates and outcome statistics.

Developed in conjunction with leading orthopaedic surgeons and prosthetists, Merge Ortho includes libraries of digital orthopaedic templates from major prosthesis vendors. With customizable workflow that transcends the use of traditional non-digital planning methods, Merge Ortho delivers advanced diagnostic and planning functionality for joint arthroplasty, trauma, and deformity corrections.
