  • 1. Merge Healthcare Business Overview August, 2009
  • 2. Forward-Looking Statements This presentation contains "forward-looking statements," including statements with respect to the financial results the Company currently expects it will report for the third quarter, which are statements related to future, not past, events, and, with respect to such anticipated report of its financial results, are based on the Company’s preliminary review of its operations for such period, and which are unaudited and remain subject to quarter-end and year-end adjustment, as well as potential revision upon completion of our third quarter financial statements and review thereof by our independent registered accounting firm. Forward-looking statements usually describe our expected future business and financial outlook or performance, and often contain words such as “will,” “believes,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “expects,” "plans," "seeks," and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements, by their nature, address matters that are, to varying degrees, uncertain and subject to various known and unknown risks. For us, particular uncertainties and risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from our forward-looking statements include: possible accounting adjustments and revisions to our current preliminary expectations as to the results the Company will report for third quarter financial results; market acceptance and performance of our products and services; the impact of competitive products and pricing; possible delays in the implementation of our managed services offering; the risks and effects of our recent changes in our executive and Board leadership, including the costs and expenses related to severance payments made to departing officers; the risks and effects of our recent securities issues, including the issuance of certain senior secured notes; the past restatement of our financial statements and other actions that may be taken or required as a result of such restatement; our ability to generate sufficient cash from operations to meet future operating, financing and capital requirements, including repayment obligations with respect to our outstanding indebtedness; risks associated with our prior delays in filings with the SEC or our ability to continue to meet the listing requirements of The NASDAQ Stock Market; the costs, risks and effects of various pending legal proceedings and investigations, including the formal investigation being conducted by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the pending settlements of certain class action and derivative lawsuits; and other risk factors detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These uncertainties and risks may cause our actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in our forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date the statement was made. We undertake no obligation to update such forward-looking statements or any of such risks, uncertainties and other factors. *Note that as to Work In Progress, Merge Healthcare is not legally obligated to develop or continue to develop such Works in Progress that may include the features and functionality described herein.

  • 20. Frontiers – Customer Feedback Mike Abramowitz MD, Fairfax Hospital “Frontiers allows you to spend more time directly with the patient and not with the chart. A good example would be when I have rapid turn cases. Typically, I might have five BMT's to do in an hour. With Frontiers, the documentation is thorough and complete for all my cases. By the time I get to the PACU, the records are finished. If I were charting on paper, I would have to start my records in the recovery room.” John E. Lindsey Jr. MD, President Orthopaedic Anesthesia Specialists, LLC. “Frontiers' user friendly software and intuitive documentation tools have enabled our clinicians to rapidly transition from time consuming paper-based documentation to electronic record keeping. Frontiers has significantly reduced the time we devote to documentation and has thereby provided us with more time to focus on the patient.”
