W.Va. hospital taps Merge for cardio systems
Mon General Hospital has decided to install a full suite of enterprise-level cardiology information systems from Merge Healthcare.

The Morgantown, W.Va.-based hospital is replacing existing imaging systems in its cardiology department with Merge tools, including information systems for cardiology image management, hemodynamics and ECG.

Merge Cardio is an enterprise-level cardiology image and information system that manages and analyzes digital medical images. It also provides clinical tools such as web-based physician reporting from office or home, and provides separate reports linked to a single imaging study.

Merge Hemo, a cardiac cath lab knowledge tool, integrates functionality for data collection, waveform analysis, inventory control, patient charging and procedure reporting.

Merge Cardio ECG provides a web-based visualization platform for all non-invasive cardiology data. It provides cardiologists, emergency room physicians, anesthesiologists and referring physicians with anywhere access to the patient’s ECG information, images and clinical data, stated the Chicago-based provider of enterprise imaging and interoperability systems.
