Signify Premium Insight: Canon’s Vital Changes
Published: July 28, 2021
Canon Medical Systems intends to strengthen its healthcare information technology (HIT) division and has announced an operational plan to broaden its capabilities. Canon’s HIT business will leverage the vendor’s global infrastructure to accelerate the delivery of a full range of Enterprise, AI, and collaborative imaging solutions. Among the key changes from the announcement is Vital Image’s rebranding, with the unit dropping its present designation and instead adopting the Canon Medical Vitrea brand to support a more unified business approach. In doing so, Canon will find itself competing ever more closely with larger, entrenched rivals.
- Canon is increasingly positioning itself as an alternative to large imaging solution (modality plus imaging IT services) vendors to fight for major, network-wide managed service deals.
