Cedara Software (Mississauga, Ontario), a Merge Healthcare company and a medical imaging software and services provider, has released its C4 platform.

According to Cedara, the C4 platform is an integration framework that enables modular integration of clinical applications with minimal impact on the host software product. The C4 platform supports integration with many imaging companies' picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), radiology information systems (RIS) and electronic medical record (EMR) systems, contends the company.

The term C4 enabled refers both to the C4 host — PACS workstation software, for example — and to the clinical application that runs on the PACS, such as a 3D angiography visualization tool or a planning package for orthopedic procedures, says the software company.
