PACS to enhance raiology workflow

Merge Healthcare : 18 March, 2014  (Application Story)
NexxRad Teleradiology will implement PACS imaging software for improvements in radiology care and workflow
PACS to enhance raiology workflow


Merge Healthcare has announced that NexxRad Teleradiology Partners will implement Merge PACS, Merge's real-time picture archiving communication system. The partnership will enable NexxRad to store, share and access images throughout the organization and deliver real-time clinical data through pre-fetching technology and seamless integration across its teleradiology and referral networks, streamlining operational workflow, reducing operational costs and enhancing clinical care.



"Our healthcare landscape is changing quickly, and it was critical for NexxRad to find an information technology partner who could help us change with the times and set a foundation for long-term success," said Michael Gordon, Vice President of Operations at NexxRad. "By implementing Merge PACS, our team of teleradiologists will make use of a solution that's geared toward our working environment. We have access to customizable capabilities that connect critical patient information across our networks, helping us to focus on our core mission to provide the best quality of care to our patients – rather than the clunky technology."



Merge PACS will integrate with NexxRIS, NexxRad's Radiology Information System, for direct access to images and reports, enabling easy navigating of image sets without interruptions to current reads and customizable parameters for imaging exams. In addition, teleradiologists will make use of pre-fetching capabilities to better understand a more complete patient profile for enhanced outcomes and overall patient care.



"NexxRad provides a highly customizable imaging solution within teleradiology, and we understand there are unique needs that must be addressed when it comes to remote reading and reporting especially beyond the four walls of a hospital setting," said Justin Dearborn, CEO at Merge Healthcare. "We're happy to partner with NexxRad and provide them with a PACS solution that will help them enhance operational workflow and improve quality of care. This new relationship sets a solid foundation for NexxRad to expand their current teleradiology services and further supports Merge's dedication to delivering optimal imaging solutions for all facets of the radiology workflow."
