Earlier this year, our Merge RIS™
developers successfully participated in the recent Connectathon sponsored by Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), where Merge Healthcare was the first vendor to pass IHE’s new Clinical Decision Support (CDS) profile testing—a profile Merge and our clients had a big hand in developing. This is a major step forward in our long journey toward ensuring efficient compliance with an important industry mandate.
HIMSS16 begins next week. With a vision to better health through information technology, HIMSS promises to deliver a different conference from previous years’ shows. For starters, a 40 degree spike in weather from last year’s conference in Chicago should put a smile on the faces of those traveling from colder climates. Furthermore, it’s not an everyday occurrence for a (not one, but two-time) Super Bowl winner, Peyton Manning to deliver a healthcare IT conference keynote speech. Most importantly, HIMSS16 will bring together healthcare leaders from across the world with the same end goal: optimizing health engagements and patient care outcomes through information technology. Merge is excited to play a role in the HIMSS mission of developing innovative technology that will ultimately improve the speed and accuracy of healthcare delivery.
