Helping Start Ups Grow

An Ongoing Multi-Faceted Communications Campaign

In 2005, CoActiv was a local Conn. IT company with several custom-developed technology implementations in nearby healthcare and medical imaging practices. That year, for the first time, the company attended RSNA to introduce its initial PACS product. It hoped to significantly expand its customer base and to become a recognized force in the medical imaging field.

Over the years, as CoActiv’s HealthFlash marketing efforts helped CoActiv gain significant traction and recognition in the field, the company’s business expanded to include hospitals, multi-specialty practices, in addition to radiology groups. So too, as its success grew, the CoActiv product line expanded.Its RSNA booth size increased more than four-fold as it moved to a location of prominence at the major medical convention. The company’s sales increased steadily each year as did the caliber of its customer base. Today, its technology integrates at many installations with such companies as G.E.and Siemens.
