December 4, 2013 — Merge Healthcare is showcasing its new universal viewer solution at Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013) in Chicago. iConnect Access Version 5.0 combines enterprise viewing with image sharing for easy image review for referring physicians anywhere at any time.
Because patients are cared for in multiple locations, iConnect Access addresses the need for a clinical collaboration solution that enables patients' images to follow them to the point of care. Merge's solution combines a zero-client enterprise universal viewer with an image-sharing/CD import workflow manager and a non-DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) management tool that integrates seamlessly into electronic health record (EHR) workflow. This single, integrated solution aligns with an organization's strategic goals, enhances performance and is easy-to-use by all stakeholders.
Slated for delivery in the first quarter of 2014, iConnect Access 5.0 is part of the iConnect Enterprise Clinical Platform and includes iConnect Enterprise Archive, which was ranked the largest vendor-neutral archive (VNA) in the world for the second year in a row by IHS.
