September 11, 2009 - Building on a successful distribution agreement established over the past three years, Merge Healthcare and Rosslyn Medical, a medical imaging solution provider serving the Russian market, have extended their partnership to expand the portfolio of Merge OEM products available to Rosslyn.
This new agreement brings the Russian market access to “zero client” web technologies, PACS applications, and clinical workstations that Rosslyn will integrate into custom solutions for their customers.
Rosslyn Medical has been active in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) for over 16 years, and has steadily grown to become one of the largest distributors of medical equipment in Russia. “Our customers, including private clinics and medical centers, are some of the largest purchasers of medical equipment throughout Russia and the countries of CIS,” explains Leon Zilber, President of Rosslyn Medical. “These customers demand the latest technology, as well as top quality sales and service.”
Frost and Sullivan estimates that the Russian medical technology market was worth $2 billion in 2007, and, although the country has been affected by the worldwide economic downturn, national initiatives like the 'National Health Program' and project ‘Health’ are providing additional stimulus to equip specialized health centers, hospitals and clinics with advanced medical technology.
