March 12, 2008 - Merge Healthcare released an imaging informatics solution, eFilm RIS/PACS, created for small imaging centers and specialty practices to acquire basic RIS/PACS functionality, featuring eFilm Workstation desktop imaging software.
The server is shipped with the eFilm RIS/PACS software installed and an installation of the Web server by Merge or onsite resources takes place before use. The company claims simplified start-up by a single feature configuration, which provides a set of workflow features, ranging from scheduling to report creation. Designed to provide access to reports and images from a Web-enabled device, whether at home, a private office or the scanning site, a distributed radiology data model is also included.
Referring physicians may be included in the eFilm RIS/PACS workflow via a Web portal, working to allow rapid report distribution and availability. eFilm RIS/PACS provides an administrator-defined security model that features various levels of user rights and privileges, reportedly limiting data availability only to users that require it.
