The Merge RIS v7.0 includes a radiology-specific EHR with complete certification to enable radiologists to capture and report on metrics required for meaningful use without disrupting the traditional workflow. The technology also includes ePrescribing that allows physicians to automatically trend clinical data and report on meaningful use measures.
The product line also includes an orthopedics-specific electronic medical record system. "With Merge OrthoEMR we can meet meaningful use criteria and earn stimulus incentives," said Vickie Shuler, clinical administrator of Western Carolina Orthopaedic Specialists. "Using Merge OrthoEMR also means we'll avoid financial penalties that are coming to those not using MU-certified solutions. The most important aspect of Merge OrthoEMR for us is that it will help us provide better care, streamline our workflow and improve operational efficiencies."
