Merge Releases Software Package Designed to Accelerate Teleradiology Workflow

March 6, 2008 - Merge Healthcare introduced Merge TeleRead, a software package that integrates with the company's Fusion RIS/PACS and Fusion RIS/PACS MX solutions, designed to allow radiologists to place studies in a dedicated teleradiology worklist where they can be manually or automatically transmitted to an offshore reading center.

This package allows images to be sent, and also permits any prior reports, prior image studies, scanned documents and relevant patient demographics, working to facilitate detailed interpretation by reading center radiologists. When the study is placed in the teleradiology worklist, the radiologist perform is a single mouse-click to transmit the study to the reading center. When automatic routing is enabled, the TeleRead software automatically links the study with prior reports and images and sends the study to the reading center.

When the study arrives at Merge's Reading Center in India, radiologists conduct Consult PreReads, involving prescreening, reviewing historical patient information, reviewing prior studies, selection of key images, measurements, annotations and generation of a detailed report.

The completed Consult PreRead report and key images appear in the designated country-region U.S.-based radiologist's worklist queue reportedly within minutes of the completion of the Consult PreRead. The U.S.-licensed radiologist at the customer site then performs a complete official final read and issues a signed report to the referring physician.
