December 8, 2008 – At RSNA 2008, Merge Healthcare launched its eFilm Software Exchange, an online community designed to empower organizations to develop, distribute and sell applications related to eFilm Workstation.
Merge Healthcare’s eStore will host the Exchange on its new Web site, www.eFilmApps.com. The site will showcase new applications created by Merge Healthcare and third-party developers in the areas of advanced visualization, improved workflow and integration with the industry’s most widely accepted tools.
The eFilm Software Exchange aims to be a new model for the medical imaging industry, enabling a free flow of ideas, information and products among eFilm users, developers and Merge Healthcare. The Exchange reportedly gives the developer community a way to unleash their creativity and expertise in developing new applications and in showcasing existing eFilm-oriented applications. Participants in the eFilm Software Exchange have options to share a solution as freeware, or position the solutions as commercial applications and benefit financially from their efforts.
