Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland Selects IConnect(R) Access And Share For Enterprise Image Viewing And Sharing

CHICAGO, Aug. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Merge Healthcare Incorporated (Nasdaq:MRGE), a leading provider of clinical systems and innovations that seek to transform healthcare, today announced Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland in Oakland, CA has selected Merge Healthcare's iConnect® Access and iConnect®Share solutions to provide real-time access to images and information among its network of providers and referring physicians.

"Cutting edge technology like the iConnect Access system helps Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland continue our 100-year-old mission of caring for all children," said James Hanson, MD, Children's Vice President of Medical Affairs. "The new system allows Children's Oakland's medical expertise to be available to help hospitals throughout California and even has the potential to improve patient care by allowing Children's to get a surgical team and operating room prepared for an incoming patient."

As we work closely with other major care providers in the Oakland area, we need to get data to others quickly and easily. Because iConnect Access is a zero-footprint, web-based viewer, referring physicians can view images anywhere, including on mobile devices. All of this makes it easier for referring, ED, OR or remote physicians to get immediate access to reports for consultative and patient care purposes without downloading of software or a VPN connection to our network."

"Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland has taken the first critical step in developing a comprehensive enterprise-wide image strategy," said Jeff Surges, CEO of Merge Healthcare. "We believe that once providers see the value of anywhere, any time access to images, they will want to extend their ability to share and archive these images as they continue to care for children throughout the region and beyond."

iConnect Access provides a true "zero-footprint" image viewing capability and can be embedded into many third party products. iConnect Share is an internet-based gateway for image sharing between enterprises. Both solutions are part of the iConnect suite, which is the industry's only comprehensive solution for collecting, archiving, viewing, sharing and exchanging any type of image, anywhere, any time.

*iConnect Access is not FDA-cleared for diagnostic use on mobile devices.
