Merge Technologies makes management move

Connectivity and PACS firm Merge Technologies has named Joseph Gentile director of worldwide system sales. Gentile will manage the Milwaukee, WI, firm’s systems solution group, which provides medical connectivity products and medical information appliances and servers. The company expects Gentile’s experience as vice president of sales of IMACS Medical, which created a networked data and information management system for cardiology, to help it boost its business.

In other Merge news, the company last month began shipping its second-generation medical image information server MergeARK to facilities in Europe. MergeARK is part of the firm’s MergeWorks suite of products, and has been upgraded to improve its storage, retrieval, and reprint capacities. MergeARK’s hardware and operating system software are now based on Dell servers and Red Hat Linux version 6.0, respectively. Some of Merge’s European installations of MergeARK will include DRM-7000, a CD-R library from Pioneer that can store 670 CDs to provide data storage of more than 400 gigabytes.
