GMI Broadens Ultrasound Portfolio with Point of Care
Charlotte, NC (February 29, 2016) – GMI announces a new strategic relationship with Siemens Healthcare to distribute their ground-breaking and user-friendly ultrasound systems and related services to hospitals within defined geographies across the United States. Siemens, one of the world’s largest suppliers of imaging equipment to the healthcare industry, offers pioneering ultrasound technologies that will broaden and enhance GMI’s ultrasound portfolio.
The agreement, which began February 1st, gives GMI distribution rights to Siemens’ comprehensive line of diagnostic ultrasound equipment in hospitals’ “point-of-care” environments. Siemens ultrasound systems will help providers address clinical and business needs in specialty areas such as Pain, Anesthesia, E-MED, and MSK. The Siemens portfolio is designed to meet a broad set of imaging needs, ranging from compact, portable systems such as the innovative and wireless ACUSON Freestyle™ ultrasound system to fully-featured, multi-disciplinary systems.
Tom Siffringer, POC Sales Manager at GMI, is excited about the new strategic agreement with Siemens and what it will mean for both companies and their customers. “Since our founding, GMI has been an advocate for facilities purchasing ultrasound equipment. Our agreement with Siemens Healthcare allows us to expand that advocacy to the fastest growing segment of the ultrasound market, point-of-care imaging.”
