Merge Healthcare Releases Pay-Per-Study PACS, RIS/PACS

March 26, 2009 - Merge Healthcare has added Fusion Hosted RIS/PACS and Fusion Hosted PACS solutions to its portfolio of managed services.

These new “software as a service” solutions are designed to provide a cost-effective alternative for healthcare organizations seeking to create a more efficient digital environment for patient images and information. A pay-per-study model provides affordable and easy access to the newest releases of Merge Healthcare’s prominent digital imaging software solutions with minimal on-site IT management of the system, according to the company.

“Merge’s Hosted RIS/PACS solution was by far the most flexible system in terms of integration with our custom enterprise system, and in method of payment,” said John Marion, president and CFO of Healthy Life Screening in Akron, OH. “Not only do we have access to a truly integrated RIS/PACS, we have storage and recovery covered too - all three elements that are essential to our immediate needs and our needs as they pertain to the future of healthcare.” Marion adds, “Having eliminated our manual processes, we’ve already seen direct cost savings in terms of faster turnarounds and in the accuracy of information retained within each patient record.”

These HIPPA-compliant platforms store digital images and associated patient information on a secure, off-site server; and are accessible at any time from any hosted network computer. Merge Healthcare’s imaging-focused IT specialists provide the implementation and 24/7 support of the Hosted RIS/PACS and PACS solutions, using proprietary technology for remote management of many tasks. An automatic failover and recovery option is also available to ensure continual uptime and workflow productivity.
