CHICAGO, Nov. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Merge Healthcare Incorporated (Nasdaq:MRGE), a leading provider of clinical systems and innovations that seek to transform healthcare, will showcase their new universal viewer solution at Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting on December 1-6, in Chicago, Ill. An industry first, iConnect Access Version 5.0 smartly combines enterprise viewing with image sharing for easy image review for referring physicians anywhere, any time.

Because patients are cared for in multiple locations, iConnect Access addresses the need for a clinical collaboration solution that enables patients' images to follow them to the point of care. Merge's solution combines a zero-client enterprise universal viewer with an image sharing/CD import workflow manager and a non-DICOM management tool that integrates seamlessly into EHR workflow. This single, integrated solution aligns with an organization's strategic goals, enhances performance, and is easy-to-use by all stakeholders.

"Based on client feedback and changing clinical, IT and business requirements, Merge has developed three flexible configurations of iConnect Access that can meet all institutions' specific mission and workflows," said Justin Dearborn, CEO of Merge. "Merge is the only vendor to offer this unique and innovative combination of image sharing and enterprise viewing…no third-parties, no partners. This is our true end-to-end enterprise imaging solution and we are pleased to show it at RSNA this year."

Slated for delivery in the first quarter of 2014, iConnect Access 5.0 is part of the iConnect Enterprise Clinical Platform and includes iConnect Enterprise Archive, which was ranked the largest vendor-neutral archive in the world for the second year in a row by IHS.
