New RIS/PACS system offers efficiency benefits

Merge Healthcare : 20 April, 2007  (New Product)
Merge Healthcare's Fusion RIS/PACS MX imaging informatics solution has been released to offer more efficient RIS and PACS performance
The system has been designed for imaging centres, hospitals, multi-facility physician practices and specialty clinics.

Fusion RIS/PACS MX helps these organizations achieve new efficiencies by blending together the advantages of a RIS (radiology information system) and a PACS (picture archiving and communication system) into a single business and clinical application with a uniquely optimized radiologist workspace environment.

Fusion RIS/PACS MX delivers a single workflow application which is relevant to the entire spectrum of clinical and business needs for medical imaging.

With exam-driven workflow and a single source of access to all patient information, duplicative and/or missing data is greatly reduced.

Customisable, intuitive worklists and embedded tools, such as document management, enhance every user's productivity and help imaging businesses reduce report turnaround times.

The solution is based upon a radiologist workspace that gives single-desktop access to all information required for reading and reporting on an exam via the Patient Master Jacket.

Not only are all the advanced tools readily available that are required for today's reading, but Fusion RIS/PACS MX also gives radiologists easy access to RIS-based data.

Point and click linkage to additional workflow tools, such as relevant priors, embedded dictation, interrupt sessions and instant messaging, give radiologists a truly comprehensive 'command centre'.

'This is a big step forward for RIS/PACS and Merge specifically, and it improves on their already well designed product,' said Steven Mendelsohn, MD, medical director of Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, which operates seven New York based imaging centres.

'In our fast paced work environment, we must ensure that our radiologists practice in the best and most efficient manner.

'We look forward to more fully leveraging Fusion RIS/PACS MX to improve workflow and capabilities not only for radiologists, but also for staff across our entire organization.'

'Merge Healthcare's comprehensive exam driven workflow and customisable worklist management ensure that people across the organization, from scheduling through billing, can yield new efficiencies', said Matt Dewey, Zwanger-Pesiri's chief operating officer.

'Specially designed tools help move each case from order to report to reimbursement with quality, speed and efficiency'.

'It has been very rewarding to work as a development partner with Merge in helping to create Fusion RIS/PACS MX as a critical tool for imaging businesses in competitive environments'.

According to Kenneth Rardin, Merge Healthcare CEO, many of Merge Healthcare's existing customers have performed ROI analysis and have shown tangible improvements such as:

- turnaround times reduced from days to minutes.

- addition of new imaging centres while limiting volume for new staff hires.

- increased exam volumes within the same cost structure.

- condensed space requirements from distributed workloads.

'Merge Healthcare has maximised its ability to bring together the 'best of the best' from our long standing, proven RIS, PACS and RIS/PACS technologies', said Rardin.

'Fusion RIS/PACS MX is relevant to the growth and operations of an organization because, as a business and clinical workflow solution, it is designed for the explicit purpose of helping to improve performance today and in the future'.
