Bremen, January 17, 2014 – MeVis Medical Solutions AG [ISIN: DE000A0LBFE4], a leading provider of medical imaging software, announces that its biggest customer Hologic, Inc. aims for an altered form of cooperation with MeVis in the mid-term.
Over a transition period of several years the licensing business model shall be converted to development support for Hologic starting probably 2016. MeVis will continue to contribute its clinical know-how and software development expertise in the development of applications as a strategic partner.
