Merge Healthcare Incorporated Key Developments

Merge Healthcare Enter into Agreement with MedAllies to Advance the Interoperability of Medical Image Ordering and Results Delivery Services

Merge Healthcare has announced an agreement with MedAllies to advance the interoperability of medical image ordering and results delivery services for nearly 300,000 physicians whose communication capability is accessible by MedAllies. MedAllies will leverage Merge's vendor-neutral referral management platform, called iConnect Network Services (iCNS), to simplify image ordering and results delivery for its connected users. The iCNS platform will enable those users to replace inefficient processes - that rely on paper, fax and costly multiple point-to-point connections - with a single innovative electronic solution to order medical imaging studies and receive results.

Merge Healthcare and Greenway Health Collaborate to Automate the Medical Imaging Ordering Process for Health Care Providers Nationwide

Merge Healthcare announced an agreement with Greenway Health which aims to automate medical imaging ordering and results delivery work flows for health care professionals nationwide. The collaboration will provide Greenway's customers with access to Merge's vendor-neutral referral management platform, called iConnect Network Services (iCNS). iCNS streamlines the cumbersome and labor-intensive process of placing medical imaging orders, obtaining prior authorizations from payers and delivering results back to referring providers. These activities are currently performed manually using paper and fax. Merge's iCNS creates efficiencies by automating the process of medical image study ordering from within the Greenway EHR, and delivering results to the referring provider. Providers gain access to the final report and a link to the diagnostic images. This access uses certified EHR technology that meets federally mandated Meaningful Use requirements, which is beneficial to Greenway and the referring provider. iCNS also helps providers ensure that all prescribed medical imaging studies are fulfilled by tracking orders electronically and identifying instances when prescribed studies were not performed.

Merge Healthcare Partners with AIM Specialty Health to Streamline Imaging Study Prior Authorizations

Merge Healthcare has entered into an agreement with AIM Specialty Health which intends to streamline the process providers undertake to obtain imaging study prior authorizations from payers. The agreement will benefit both providers and payers using Radiology Benefits Management (RBM) programs administered by AIM as well as Merge customers, including imaging centers and hospitals using Merge's iConnect Network Services (iCNS). iCNS is a comprehensive technology-based solution which electronically routes imaging study orders, manages access to incoming prior authorizations and communicates medical imaging results among healthcare professionals in a HIPAA-compliant manner. Some physician practices and medical imaging providers continue to navigate multiple online portals to input the patient eligibility and clinical data required by multiple payers. This new partnership is intended to ease the administrative effort, providing secure access to the AIM solution platform directly from within the iCNS environment. Medical imaging providers will be able to manage incoming orders, payer prior authorization and results delivery from a comprehensive technology platform.
