Date:11/27/2007

MILWAUKEE, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Merge Healthcare (Nasdaq: MRGE; TSX: MRG), a leading medical imaging software and services provider, announced today that its Merge Healthcare Teleradiology division has been awarded the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval(TM), by demonstrating compliance with the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization's national standard for healthcare quality and safety. On November 20, 2007, Merge Healthcare announced the introduction of a new teleradiology application called Merge TeleRead and a new teleradiology service, Consult PreReads(TM), a premium image pre-reading service of its newly formed Merge Healthcare Teleradiology division. Consult PreReads are provided by skilled remotely-based radiologists.

"We have established our systems and processes to support the Joint Commission's strict licensing and credentialing verification, especially in regard to healthcare quality and patient safety," said Kenneth Rardin, Merge Healthcare CEO. "We go beyond those standards with other types of verifications and references to ensure the highest level of Consult PreReads."

"Achieving accreditation demonstrates that Merge Healthcare voluntarily sought an independent evaluation of its compliance with state-of-the-art performance standards," says Michael Kulczycki, executive director, Ambulatory Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission.
