November 21, 2007 - Merge Healthcare will introduce at RSNA 2007 a new teleradiology software application designed to improve technology to support the complex final read business, Merge TeleRead, and a new service offering, Consult PreRead, a consulting service designed to provide a preliminary report of a medical imaging study, producing a detailed report that a U.S. radiologist may consult and utilize to prepare an official final diagnostic report.
TeleRead, scheduled to be released for production in Q108, reportedly provides access to current studies, prior studies, prior reports and relevant current and historical patient information.
The Consult PreRead was created to provide another level of quality control for the official final diagnostic report, which Merge's radiology group customers' licensed U.S. radiologists are responsible for preparing, while enhancing the productivity of the U.S. reading radiologist. After being read by the U.S. radiologist, the medical imaging study has been triple-read before it goes back to the referring physician from the U.S. radiologist.
Both the TeleRead and Consult PreRead will be on display at RSNA 2007.
