QualityStocks would like to highlight Merge Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRGE), a leading provider of clinical systems and innovations that seek to transform healthcare. Merge’s enterprise and cloud-based solutions for image intensive specialties provide access to any image, anywhere, any time. Merge also provides health stations, clinical trials software and other health data and analytics solutions that engage consumers in their personal health.
In the company’s news yesterday,
Merge Healthcare was named the number one vendor neutral archive (VNA) provider by InMedica, a market study research division of MS Research.
Merge’s iConnect is the first true standalone Vendor Neutral Archive and accounted for 37% of all studies archived in 2011, which equates to over 200 million studies and 13 billion images archived by customers. It is integrated with over 75 PACS vendors and specialty workstations at 350 sites across the US. Notably, InMedica predicts that total industry VNA solutions will grow by a 49% CAGR from 75 million to 570 million in 2016. With current trends in patient safety and healthcare reform, as well as competition for referring physicians, the need for image sharing across the enterprise is more critical than ever.
“Our clients continue to add 150 million images every month to iConnect VNA. This volume accounts for over one third of all studies archived in VNAs. That’s a phenomenal feat and we are proud to achieve this market leadership position,” said Jeff Surges, CEO of Merge Healthcare. “As we continue our move to the cloud, the volume of clients and images we support validates our credibility as a provider, our ability to scale and our forward-thinking approach to healthcare.”
Merge enterprise and cloud-based solutions for image intensive specialties provide access to any image. The company also provides health stations, clinical trials software, and other health data and analytics solutions that engage consumers in their personal health.
iConnect is vendor agnostic, which lends the ability to add or replace storage systems per the needs of the clients. The solution provides the ability to standardize and archive images from disparate systems and sites, and provides clinicians the ability to view all diagnostic images in one location. iConnect VNA is part of the iConnect suite, a comprehensive solution for viewing, archiving, and sharing any type of image. The suite also includes iConnect(R) Access, a zero-download DICOM image and XDS server, and iConnect(R) Share, an Internet-based gateway for image sharing between enterprises.
