Mercy's IT arm commercializes cloud-hosted imaging tool

Mercy Technology Services, the IT arm of Aurora, Mo.-based Mercy health system, launched a cloud-hosted imaging software solution.

The picture archiving communication system comprises an enterprise viewer, vendor-neutral archive, workflow orchestrator, and speech recognition and reporting tools based on the solution used by Mercy, a 40-plus hospital system.

The service makes Mercy Technology Services the first healthcare provider to extend PACS-as-a-Service to hospitals across the country. Mercy Technology Services plans to market the system, which combines tools from vendors like Visage, Medicalis and Nuance, to small and midsize hospitals.

"Mercy's is a solution built by busy radiologists for busy radiologists," Steve Bollin, vice president of radiology support services at Mercy, said in a news release. "Having everything together and instantly viewable with the click of a button — all prior studies, all modalities — means radiologists aren't waiting and neither are patients."
