C4(TM) (Cedara Clinical Control Center(TM))

The C4 platform delivers desktop integration of clinical applications to an established RIS/PACS solution. This application plug-in integration and development model shortens the development cycle, accelerating time to market and delivering a streamlined best-of-breed clinical imaging solution. In essence, C4 acts as an invisible layer between different software applications, creating a means for bidirectional information exchange between each unit. Using a component based architecture; C4 creates a framework for host and plug-in applications to operate in unison, sharing system resources. In this way, C4 minimizes the time and cost of integrating and maintaining the clinical application array required by today's clinicians.

Cedara will show C4 integration throughout its booth and at the exhibits of several customers that have embraced C4. C4 hosts at the Cedara booth will include:
