Roche First to Implement MIRA™ as an Online Medical Image Repository
Roche is using ICON's MIRA™ (Medical Image Review and Analysis) software as the company's central repository for medical images. MIRA is the core application used by ICON Medical Imaging in its daily operations and provides functionality for imaging and clinical data management, image analysis, project management and document management. MIRA™ is being implemented by Roche in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, which provides Roche with 24/7 access to imaging data from anywhere in the world and also eliminates the technology costs associated with purchasing and maintaining an image management system in-house. ICON is the first medical imaging provider to offer clients a SaaS solution for their image management needs.
