Merge's Hemodynamic System Ranked Number 1 Category Leader In KLAS For Second Straight Year

CHICAGO, Dec. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Merge Healthcare Incorporated (Nasdaq:MRGE), a leading provider of clinical systems and innovations that seek to transform healthcare, today announced that Merge Hemo™ has been named the "Category Leader" in the "2012 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services" report for Cardiology Hemodynamics rankings for the second consecutive year.

Currently running in over 500 cardiac cath labs in some of the country's largest health systems, Merge Hemo captures real-time data and documents procedural events to enable efficient workflow. "We are extremely proud that Merge Hemo has maintained its number one status with KLAS for two years running," said Jeff Surges, CEO of Merge Healthcare. "We have worked diligently to ensure Merge Hemo provides seamless EHR integration, enhances workflow and reporting and provides quality patient care. We are pleased to be recognized for our innovative solution, and for our customers to rank us number one is a significant accomplishment."

Merge Hemo provides physicians and staff the ability to capture information through a simple touch-screen user interface at the point of care, leading to enhanced reporting and care. Because the data captured on Merge Hemo can be easily integrated with EHRs, cath lab information is cohesively incorporated into the overall electronic patient chart, leading to a more complete record.
