This robust solution leverages OnBase for proven electronic medical record (EMR) integration, Health Information Management workflows and complete Release of Information capabilities. The integrated solution ensures full operation of Merge's zero-download viewer, iConnect® Access, in conjunction with OnBase to eliminate unnecessary workflow steps and provide access to any clinical content, both DICOM and non-DICOM, from any EMR. iConnect Enterprise Archive, Merge's vendor-neutral archive, allows clients to eliminate imaging silos throughout their organization, reduces long-term storage costs and simplifies connectivity to disparate systems. The combined Hyland and Merge solution provides Meaningful Use Stage 2 image enablement of the EMR and positions healthcare enterprises to achieve HIMSS Stage 7.

Jeff Sorenson , Hyland's Global Director of Healthcare Sales and Solutions, explained, "OnBase includes an expansive array of clinical and administrative workflow capabilities. Our partnership and development roadmap with Merge leverages the native integration capabilities of our software and augments these with new image context management capabilities to provide a significantly more efficient physician experience.  The incorporation of medical imaging into the OnBase environment will bring the intelligent workflow automation of ECM to the medical imaging enterprise."

"We're very excited that our teams will be offering this collaborative solution to their respective installed base," said Jeff Surges, CEO, Merge Healthcare. "After successfully working together for several years, this is a natural extension of our partnership and we look forward to expanding our enterprise imaging footprint in the market."
