When Change Brings Opportunity: A Merge Cardio Case Study
The 2013 merger between Edward Hospital & Health Services and Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare created one of the largest health systems in Illinois. As is often the case with this type of amalgamation, executives of the newly named Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare faced numerous integration challenges and had to determine the best way to maximize each organization's strengths. Thankfully, one thing that required little effort was deciding on a cardiology system.


“Data flows very nicely from the hemodynamics system to the cardiology system. The continuous improvements that we've seen in Merge Hemo over the years have been nice, too. It's a very easy system to use, very user-friendly.”

Download our complimentary case study to learn how Edward-Elmhurst:
  • Automated the cath lab process into a digital patient record across the entire healthcare enterprise
  • Saved time and achieved more accurate, complete and faster results with a centralized web-based system
  • Achieved significant improvements with echocardiograms, better control for video clips, and faster speed when downloading cases
