This change will be debuted at HIMSS 2021, and Vital will be exhibiting as Canon Medical for the first time

July 22, 2021 — Canon Medical Systems Corporation announced a major operational plan to strengthen its healthcare information technology (HIT) division.

The HIT division will broaden its capabilities and leverage Canon Medical’s global infrastructure to accelerate the delivery of a full range of Enterprise, AI and collaborative imaging solutions. As part of the development, Vital Images, Inc. will adopt the Canon Medical brand to support a more unified business approach.

The entire reform, which is expected to take time to complete, will further solidify the company’s goal of strengthening HIT as a key growth pillar – enabling customers to access the full range of solutions they can use to help improve patient outcomes and decrease turnaround time in a value-based healthcare system.

“This development represents a bold new future for our company, our partners and our customers,” said Toshio Takiguchi, CEO and President of Canon Medical. “Enhancing our HIT solution and service provision is the natural next step in a world that demands accurate and immediate results across the entire hospital enterprise.”

Jim Litterer, President and CEO of Vital Images, Inc. said of the reform: “Canon Medical has a well-established reputation for delivering leading solutions that support the end-to-end needs of the evolving healthcare systems. I am confident that customers around the globe can look forward to enhanced service delivery, uncompromised quality, and an innovative approach to healthcare – which is why I am excited to strengthen the HIT division under the entity name Canon Medical Informatics, Inc., leveraging the global reach of Canon Medical”.  The formal name change will be completed effective Oct. 1, 2021.
