Leading West Virginia Hospital Selects Merge for Cardiology Imaging and Information Solutions

August 3, 2011 — Merge Healthcare, provider of enterprise imaging and interoperability solutions, announced that Mon General Hospital, located in Morgantown, West Virginia, is installing its full suite of enterprise-level cardiology solutions. Mon General is one of West Virginia’s leading acute care community hospitals

The hospital is replacing all of the existing imaging systems in their cardiology department with Merge solutions, including information systems for cardiology image management, hemodynamics and electrocardiograms (ECG).

“We needed to eliminate the inefficiency caused by the disparate systems we previously had,” said Steve Carter, CIO at Mon General Hospital. “We met with executives from Merge and were impressed with the company’s direction and their roadmap for future products. Ultimately, we selected Merge because it was the best fit for our long term goal of having a fully integrated, enterprise-wide cardiovascular information system.”

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 complete functionality for data collection, waveform analysis, inventory control, patient charging, and procedure reporting.

Merge Cardio ECG will provide an integrated, vendor neutral, Web-based visualization platform for all noninvasive cardiology data. Cardiologists, emergency room physicians, anesthesiologists and referring physicians will now have "anywhere access" to not only the patient’s ECG information, but their images and clinical data as well.

“Merge Hemo will streamline many of our current processes and give us real data in real time and allow staff to focus on the patient and procedure,” said Diana Bridges, director of cardiovascular services, Mon General Hospital.
