Under the new operational plan, the HIT division will be known as Canon Medical Informatics and will encompass the firm's enterprise, artificial intelligence (AI), and collaborative imaging activities. The division will also broaden its capabilities and leverage Canon Medical's global infrastructure, according to the vendor.
The changes are being made to further solidify Canon's goal of strengthening HIT as a key growth pillar, the firm said. The name change and reform will take effect on October 1.
Vital Images was acquired by Toshiba Medical Systems in 2011; Toshiba subsequently was bought by Canon in 2016.
