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.
As part of the agreement, Cedara contends it will provide PMH with a variety of clinical applications, software development toolkits, and services to accelerate the hospital's research and development efforts in oncology and radiation therapy. 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.
University Health Network is an academic research hospital that includes PMH, Toronto General Hospital and Toronto Western Hospital.
