Cedara Software, a Merge Healthcare company, introduced the C4-enabled I-ReadMammo, creating a plug-in version of its digital mammography solution, designed for modular integration into any C4-enabled imaging solution, such as a Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS).
Cedara also reported that several imaging equipment vendors are integrating this new C4-enabled version of I-ReadMammo into their PACS solutions. Cedara’s C4 platform is an integration framework that facilitates plug-in integration of clinical applications with minimal changes to the host (e.g., PACS) software product. A C4-enabled host integrated with one or more C4-enabled clinical applications provides an integrated desktop environment with procedure-centric workflow. The C4 platform supports integration with imaging companies’ PACS, Radiology Information Systems (RIS) and Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems.
