M*Modal and Merge Healthcare Collaborate
M*Modal has expanded its relationship with imaging provider Merge Healthcare to an extensive reseller partnership in which M*Modal's Fluency and M*Modal Catalyst technology platforms will be available to Merge's imaging customers, delivering cloud-based speech recognition, real-time business intelligence, structured multimedia reporting, and workflow management for diagnostic interpretations.
As part of the agreement, Merge will bundle M*Modal Fluency for Imaging and M*Modal Catalyst for Radiology with its Merge PACS portfolio of imaging and radiology products to give clients greater flexibility in deploying picture archiving and communication systems (PACS).
"Our collaboration with Merge really speaks to the demand in healthcare for speech-enhanced products as well as technologies that enable efficient diagnoses," said Vern Davenport, CEO of M*Modal, in a statement. "Merge and M*Modal both focus on delivering cloud-based intelligence and giving clients access to images and documentation anywhere, anytime."
