"As the industry continues to shift and rely more heavily on information technology for critical data exchange, we're addressing these changes head on by implementing solutions that enable instantaneous information sharing," said
After working with Merge to complete an assessment and pinpoint areas of improvement,
"Our providers previously relied on incoming CDs, which were imported to PACS, and accompanying reports had to be scanned and manually matched to the accession number," continued Syvertson. "We estimated that 60 percent of the information on these CDs was incorrect. Now, we will be able to move away from this manual process using Merge's interoperability platform. We're excited about this collaboration and look forward to identifying additional areas of improvement to further position ourselves for future regulation and technology changes, including HIPAA policy and archived data."
"Bozeman Deaconess recognizes the value of deploying an interoperability infrastructure from one vendor, and we're proud that they have decided to expand their partnership with Merge to add an enterprise-wide imaging platform to share clinical content across their organization," said
