University Health Network's Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH, Toronto, Ontario) has formed a partnership with Cedara Software (Mississauga, Ontario), a Merge Healthcare (Milwaukee, Wis.) company and an independent developer of medical software technologies in clinical image and information management.

This encompasses distributed information management (based on Cedara aXigate), Web-enabled image management (Cedara I-Reach), rapid application development platforms (Cedara OpenEyes), and toolkits for image segmentation and image registration, says the company.
