Varian, a Siemens Healthineers company, has acquired Aspekt Solutions, a provider of medical physics and dosimetry services, to enhance its Advanced Oncology Solutions (AOS) and meet the growing demand for customized care delivery.
“Through our AOS offerings, we’ve been leading the way in melding innovative technology with clinical expertise to help address these challenges,” says Chuck Lindley, vice president of AOS, at Varian. “With Aspekt Solutions, we can support more oncology centers with a holistic approach to addressing today’s challenges while also preparing for the fast-evolving future of cancer care.”
Cancer care is evolving rapidly, and providers face numerous challenges, including the rising cost of care, technological complexity, and a shortage of skilled personnel, according to Varian. While navigating these challenges, cancer centers strive to meet several competing objectives in clinical quality, operational efficiency, and technology utilization.
Varian’s AOS provides customized technology and professional support from experts with clinical and operational experience to assist cancer centers in achieving their goals for expansion, upgrade, or standardization while implementing global best practices in cancer care.
“As part of Varian, we are confident that we will have more opportunities to empower clinicians and patients around the world,” adds Brian Pellegrini, CEO of Aspekt Solutions.
“We are excited to continue our mission of bringing together the best team of physicists, dosimetrists, and consultants in the industry and partnering with clients to support and extend their existing programs and prepare them for the future. Our immediate focus will be on ensuring that the transition is as smooth as it is beneficial for customers and Aspekt Solutions employees,” Pellegrini adds.
