June 1, 2012 — ClearCanvas Inc., a medical imaging informatics company, announced a new partnership agreement with DPR of San Ramon, Calif., a technology company that delivers intelligent imaging informatics solutions for the radiology industry. The companies will work together on joint marketing and sales efforts to further distribute their combined solutions.

DPR develops and sells CaseReader, a structured reporting solution for medical imaging professionals. The software automatically populates measurements, images and other relevant information into a report based on key diagnostic activities performed by a radiologist. The widespread adoption of high-volume imaging modalities has placed significant productivity restraints on radiology; the workflow associated with CaseReader is designed to speed up the reporting process, helping healthcare professionals to process vast amounts of medical imaging data at a faster pace. 

ClearCanvas develops and markets diagnostic workstations, picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) and radiology information systems (RIS), allowing medical imaging clinics to capture, distribute, review, report, and archive digital images and associated information. The company's products provide radiologists and other clinicians with a variety of advanced diagnostic tools while simplifying system management for IT administrators. Clinical editions of the company's products have received regulatory clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada, and European CE Mark is pending. ClearCanvas is also known for providing open-source software platforms that are used by medical researchers and OEM companies to accelerate development timelines and reduce costs.

CaseReader comes embedded with M*Modal Speech Understanding technology for both navigation and dictation purposes. This capability allows healthcare professionals to systematically navigate through patient studies using voice-driven commands. Direct access to case templates and CPT codes in the application help to ensure that reimbursements are maximized for reported exams. With a wide variety of reporting tools, the application looks to drastically reduce the potential for errors, lower costs and, while working in collaboration with the referring physician, improve patient outcomes. CaseReader can be deployed on either a PACS server or in the cloud.

The companies have previously worked together to integrate their software into a unified solution. The first CaseReader installation will be a ClearCanvas site, which is expected to become operational in July.

"We are excited to be expanding our relationship with ClearCanvas," said Steve Douglas, president and CEO of DPR. "An integrated ClearCanvas and DPR solution will deliver dramatic radiology post-processing analysis and reporting results. Delivering these important technology efficiencies to both new and established ClearCanvas customers will create exceptional value and growth for both companies."
