Merge Healthcare's Cedara WebAccess, a new solution created with IBM software, could potentially help medical professionals view emergency cases, consult with colleagues and forward critical findings.

The Cedara WebAccess application will include systems that deliver medical images to an iPhone or iPod touch, physician portals and other web-based solutions that promise to decrease the medical profession's reliance on image delivery methods, Merge said.

The Milwaukee-based company said that its Cedara WebAccess technology eliminates the need for specialized systems and additional computer storage capacity.
