Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing holiday break and that your 2024 is off to a strong start. We’re already hard at work kicking off our plans for the year to continue delivering and building on the exceptional user experiences you’ve all come to expect from Merge. For us, 2024 is all about three major focus areas: innovation, adoption, and focus.

On that note, I’m happy to announce the return of the Merge User Meeting for 2024! This year we’re hosting it at our brand-new headquarters in Hartland, Wisconsin, for a more intimate experience that will allow us, and you, to more directly dial into your imaging needs.

New research on the evolution of cloud in imaging

In case you missed it, last year we commissioned an independent research survey of 100 U.S. medical imaging practitioners about their enterprise cloud journey – specifically their level of enterprise cloud adoption, investment prioritization, and integration requirements.

Are you one of the 77% that relies on cloud for storing and accessing medical information? Or the 98% who said their organization is currently facing tech challenges? Or how about the 58% who say they need faster, easier access to patient data to significantly improve their workflows – does that sound like you?

Check out our full report for exclusive findings on how our industry is faring with cloud, the challenges blocking better utilization, and the road of opportunities that continues to lie ahead.

Customer Spotlight: SOIN and Costa Rica

Get a look inside the five-year plan to revolutionize hospital care in Costa Rica, and how SOIN got it done with an enterprise imaging foundation from Merge.
