Merge RIS from Merge Healthcare, Inc., is a Web-based radiology-specific electronic health record (EHR) solution that caters to radiologists and ambulatory imaging centers. It is Meaningful Use and ICD-10 compliant.
The solution is integrated with Merge PACS (a picture archiving and communication system) and Merge Financials, which is a billing system. It also features document management and dashboards, which enable radiologists to track scheduling and staffing trends.
The Merge Patient Portal module within Merge RIS enables physicians to refer patients, who in turn can place electronically signed orders and view their medical information online. The product’s integrated billing system enables the capture of billing codes at the time of treatment, which enables staff to easily generate bills and claims for patients and insurance providers.
