(May 10, 2023) Omaha, Nebraska – Cassling, an imaging and therapeutic technology, services and solutions vendor, is launching a new team to expand its industry partnerships and make its vision a reality. The business unit, Growth & Innovation, is tasked with bringing new services and solutions to market to help healthcare organizations solve their imaging pain points, remain viable and keep providers local.
According to Cassling President and CEO Kyle Salem, Ph.D., the G&I team was formed partially in response to the rapidly evolving healthcare industry.
“The needs of organizations, providers and care teams, whether they are large IDNs or small rural clinics, are changing and often increasing in complexity,” said Dr. Salem. “Our customers have specifically asked us for help, to evolve our offerings and help them tackle their challenges with more comprehensive solutions. That’s what the G&I team is all about. We’re on the lookout for up-and-coming healthcare innovations that can create efficiencies, improve outcomes and lower costs.”
Cassling has long built its reputation as an advanced partner of Siemens Healthineers—and that isn’t changing. Cassling acts as a local sales representative for Siemens Healthineers across 20 states and as the service arm across its Midwest geography to keep hospitals and clinics’ imaging equipment operating in peak condition.
“Our partnership with Siemens Healthineers began in 1999 and has never been stronger,” said Dr. Salem. “Their portfolio of imaging technology, digital automation tools and workforce solutions is impressive and expanding. Our efforts with the Growth & Innovation team are intended to augment Siemens Healthineers’s approach, so we can bring even more solutions to the table.”
The new business unit is spearheaded by long-time Cassling employee Elizabeth Grieger, Vice President of Growth & Innovation.
“I am thrilled to be leading the organization through such a pivotal time — thoughtfully expanding the Cassling brand and portfolio,” said Grieger. “We take our role to strengthen community healthcare seriously. We know that stepping up to identify and validate new technologies is one of the best ways we can support healthcare providers in their pursuit of better patient access and outcomes.”
Specifically focused on building out solutions in the interventional cardiovascular space, Cassling has executed sales and/or service partnerships with Alta, Radiaction Medical and Echo IQ.
“From remote peer-to-peer collaboration technology with Alta to innovative radiation protection for the interventional team with Radiaction Medical, our new solutions are focused on high-quality patient care,” said Grieger. “Our latest partnership with Echo IQ, which becomes official on May 15, 2023, is designed as an aortic stenosis audit tool and to support real-time diagnosis."
The Cassling team may be evolving to serve healthcare organizations in new ways, but it is staying focused on its customers’ needs and doing business “the Cassling way”— with integrity, initiative and humility.
“We believe we offer the best of both worlds — innovative imaging technology from some of the industry’s leading innovators — as well as local support and world-class customer service,” said Grieger. “That focus is intensifying as we work to connect healthcare organizations with even more tools, which we see as a critical steppingstone to accomplish our goals of impacting 350 million patient lives by the year 2030.”
Cassling strengthens community healthcare through customer-centric imaging and therapeutic technology, services and solutions. From critical access hospitals and diagnostic imaging centers to large health systems and IDNs, Cassling is committed to helping healthcare organizations improve access and outcomes, create efficiencies and lower costs.
Cassling serves as a partner and strategic advisor to healthcare organizations—helping them navigate the challenges of the fast-paced, ever-changing healthcare industry. Through our partnerships, including Siemens Healthineers, Cassling offers the best of both worlds—an unprecedented level of service and local support in combination with world-class imaging technology. Our goal is to impact 350 million patient lives by 2030.
Headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, and founded in 1984, Cassling is proud to be a family-owned company and have Midwestern values and integrity at the heart of what we do. To learn more, visit www.cassling.com.
