Healthcare IT and advanced visualization developer Merge Healthcare has released iConnect Network, an advanced imaging network, at RSNA 2013 in Chicago.

The network allows hospitals, providers, and imaging centers to exchange imaging information securely and electronically, according to Merge. The interoperability service integrates with existing electronic health record (EHR) networks and health information exchanges (HIEs), facilitates increased referrals, and supports meaningful use stage 2 imaging requirements in a cost-effective manner, the company added.

Without any additional infrastructure, iConnect Network allows providers to meet regulatory requirements and deliver critical patient data directly into a community physician's EHR system without having to build expensive point-to-point HL7 interfaces, Merge said.

Additional capabilities will be added to iConnect Network over time, including electronic patient referrals and online ordering processes, automated insurance precertification services, and direct patient access to care navigation for scheduling and accessing images.
