Merge releases surgery management product

Merge Healthcare underscored its ability to branch into information technologies outside of imaging with the release of software that captures and charts clinical data from presurgical screening through the operating room and into patient recovery. The software, called Frontiers 4.2.2, is being framed as a surgery management solution that improves hospital workflow, capturing each surgery-related charge at the point of care. It also transcribes physiological data from any Windows-based charting station in the hospital. Using this electronic surgical record, hospital administrators have access to detailed data that can improve enterprise-wide processes while enhancing profitability and compliance efforts, according to the company.
