Merge Healthcare Announces Mobile Platform for Consumers

11-15-2012 8-50-52 PM

Merge Healthcare jumps on the mHealth bandwagon, announcing today that the company plans to develop a mobile and internet platform support its radiology information system customers and their patients.

Merge intends to develop an app that will allow patients to schedule a radiology appointment and review results. The platform will also include a web based module that will allow patients to complete pre-visit documentation.

It’s a brave new mHealth world, and even something as occasional as a radiology referral is justification of an app now. Is Merge doing this because mHealth apps are trendy, or is Merge doing this to engage with patients that are so busy they need an app to help manage their radiology appointments?
