Merge Healthcare Incorporated featured its iConnect Clinical Enterprise Platform at the HIMSS13 Interoperability Showcase and in Merge's booth at this year's HIMSS conference in New Orleans. "We're proud that iConnect is part of the Interoperability Showcase at HIMSS. With the inclusion of imaging as a menu set measure in the Stage Two Meaningful Use requirements, it's more important than ever to demonstrate how our solutions contribute to health IT interoperability and can help organizations share images across their enterprise," said Jeff Surges, CEO, Merge Healthcare. "We believe that patients' images are one of the most important parts of their health record. Attendees will see first-hand how solutions, like iConnect Access, use a standards-based approach for effective and secure health data information exchange."
