January 6, 2015 — Lexmark International announced the acquisition of Toronto-based Claron Technology, a provider of medical image viewing, distribution, sharing and collaboration software technology.
One of Claron’s medical image solutions is a universal Web-based zero-footprint viewer that enables diagnostic interpretation of medical images and related digital information on a variety of computers anytime, anywhere across a healthcare provider’s enterprise. This universal viewer supports viewing of all cleared digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) imaging modalities and both 2-D and 3-D viewing. It also requires no software to download while delivering a medical view comparable to any PACS solution.
Claron will report into Lexmark’s Perceptive Software. With this acquisition, Perceptive Software expands its offering to healthcare providers by enabling referring physicians and clinicians to access, view and collaborate on patient information and medical images that reside outside the electronic medical records (EMR) systems, while concurrently image-enabling the EMR and providing easy Web-based access via desktop and mobile devices.
The surgical navigation portion of Claron will not transfer to Lexmark and will operate under the name Claronav.
