Kala will drive the development of precision healthcare solutions using AI, automation, and digital transformation for all business lines of Siemens Healthineers.

Medtech giant Siemens Healthineers India has recently appointed Kalavathi GV (Kala) as the head of the development center (DC) and executive director.

In her new role, Kala will drive the development of precision healthcare solutions using AI, automation, and digital transformation for all business lines of Siemens Healthineers.

Leading over 3,500 DC employees in India and Slovakia, Kala has taken office from Dileep Mangsuli, who will now look after the global corporate activities in the fight against tuberculosis at Siemens Healthineers.

Sharing thoughts, Peter Schardt, CTO, Siemens Healthineers said, “We welcome Kala who will be integral to our purpose to pioneer breakthroughs in healthcare for everyone, everywhere, sustainably. As a strong female business leader, we are confident that Kala will be a role model for our teams globally, fostering an environment of collaboration, mutual learning, inclusivity, and growth.”

Career Background

Kala has an extensive track record of driving global digital transformation at large multinational organizations.

She has previously held leadership positions at Philips Healthcare and GE Healthcare.

With three decades of industry experience along with strong medtech and healthcare acumen, Seimens aims to benefit from her insights and ideas to strengthen their leadership in innovation.

“At least half of the world does not have access to essential healthcare services which has been further aggravated by a lack of trained healthcare professionals. There is a need to create intuitive healthcare solutions that can be operated by anyone. Siemens Healthineers is at the forefront of healthcare innovation by developing unique solutions that aim to provide quality patient care across the world,” the newly appointed executive director, said.

Germany-based Siemens Healthineers is a leading medtech company that aims to expand precision medicine, transform care delivery, improve the patient experience, and digitalize healthcare.

Earlier, Siemens Healthineers partnered with several institutions including HealthCare Global Enterprises Ltd (HCG), and Narayana Health (NH) to make India an innovation center for Siemens Healthineers globally.

In January, Siemens Healthineers and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) joined hands to launch the Siemens Healthineers-Computational Data Sciences (CDS) Collaborative Laboratory for AI in Precision Medicine at IISc Bangalore. The newly launched lab focuses on accurately diagnosing neurological diseases and analyzing their clinical impact at a population level.

The global medtech company also partnered with Bengaluru-based Chinmaya Mission Hospital (CMH) which introduced Siemens Healthineers' Multix VA 20 x-ray machine, marking a first-of-its-kind installation in Bengaluru and South India. This medical imaging equipment integrates advanced AI and precision technology, improving diagnostic accuracy and speed while prioritizing patient care and safety through reduced radiation exposure.
