Merge introduces teleradiology software package
Merge Teleradiology, a division of Merge Healthcare, has introduced Merge TeleRead, a software package that integrates with Merge's Fusion RIS/PACS and Fusion RIS/PACS MX solutions.

The Milwaukee-based Merge said the application will allow radiologists to place studies in a teleradiology worklist, from which they can be manually or automatically transmitted to an offshore reading center.

“Integrating the teleradiology application with our RIS/PACS solutions enables our U.S. - based customers to effortlessly link studies for which they want outside telereads with a wealth of extra data that can assist our offshore reading center radiologists in providing our consult prereads,” said Kenneth Rardin, CEO of Merge.
