N.Y. hospital picks Merge's cardiology suite

Arnot Ogden Medical Center, a member of Arnot Health, will implement Merge Healthcare's cardiology suite to capture, manage and display multimodality cardiac images, as well as hemodynamics and ECG data across its enterprise.

Chicago-based Merge said its Cardiology suite includes Merge Cardio, an image and information system that provides entry to the patient's cardiac record, and Merge Hemo, which seeks to automate the cath lab process into an electronic patient record.

The Elmira, N.Y., hospital serves as a hub for all rural communities in its service area and aims to eliminate manual transfer of cardiac data.
