Merge Healthcare Inc has announced that NexxRad Teleradiology Partners is implementing its Merge PACS to enable NexxRad to store, share, and access images across its teleradiology and referral networks. Merge PACS will interface with NexxRad’s Radiology Information System, NexxRIS, and will help NexxRad streamline workflow while reducing operational costs.
“Our healthcare landscape is changing quickly, and it was critical for NexxRad to find an information technology partner who could help us change with the times and set a foundation for long-term success,” said Michael Gordon, vice president of operations at NexxRad. “By implementing Merge PACS, our team of teleradiologists will leverage a solution that’s geared toward our working environment. We have access to customizable capabilities that connect critical patient information across our networks, helping us to focus on our core mission to provide the best quality of care to our patients—rather than the clunky technology.”
“NexxRad provides a highly customizable imaging solution within teleradiology, and we understand there are unique needs that must be addressed when it comes to remote reading and reporting especially beyond the four walls of a hospital setting,” said Justin Dearborn, CEO at Merge Healthcare. “We’re happy to partner with NexxRad and provide them with a PACS solution that will help them enhance operational workflow and improve quality of care. This new relationship sets a solid foundation for NexxRad to expand their current teleradiology services and further supports Merge’s dedication to delivering optimal imaging solutions for all facets of the radiology workflow.”
