Techopedia explains Microsoft Amalga
Amalga is a platform designed to retrieve, collate and display patient information from different sources such as scanned records, X-ray images, magnetic resonance imaging scans, electrocardiograms and laboratory results, as well as other related information like patient personal records. It is designed to interface with already existing information systems so that the organization is not required to know in advance how information is to be applied specifically, allowing it to provide real-time clinical information about patients in a single view, as well as financial and administrative information that may be related to the patient.
