By further strengthening its presence in the healthcare industry, Siemens Healthcare began expanding their solution portfolio in 2006 with the acquisition of three leading diagnostics solutions providers – Dade Behring, Bayer Diagnostics and Diagnostic Products Corporation. This new business was integral to Siemens’s overall strategy to help its customers streamline workflow as well as improve quality of patient care at reduced costs. Siemens is now the world’s first and largest integrated healthcare company providing medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics, clinical IT, medical information technology and hearing aids.
