Merge to Introduce Teleradiology Product, Service Offering at RSNA

November 21, 2007 - Merge Healthcare will introduce its new teleradiology software application, Merge TeleRead and Consult PreReads at RSNA 2007.

A Consult PreRead is a consulting service that provides a preliminary report of a medical imaging study (prepared and revised by two different offshore radiologists) producing a detailed report that a U.S. radiologist may consult and utilize to prepare his or her official final diagnostic report. The report includes references to prior studies, relevant patient clinical information or data requested in the radiology order, and extensive measurements of relevant and incidental pathology and associated key images.

The company plans to offer the Merge TeleRead application and Consult PreRead service to its customers in the first quarter of 2008.

The Consult PreRead is designed to provide another level of quality control and assuredness 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. In essence, upon completion of the official 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.
