Kodak to streamline into two business units

In its ongoing efforts to improve profitability and remain competitive in an increasingly digital environment, Eastman Kodak is adopting a new corporate structure that consolidates its seven business units into two groups: consumer and commercial. Health Imaging is now part of Kodak’s commercial business. Martin Coyne, president of the Health Imaging unit, will head up the commercial group, and Michael McQuade, formerly general manager of worldwide operations for the Health Imaging unit, replaces Coyne as president of Health Imaging.

In related news, Kodak has formed a strategic alliance with R2 Technology of Los Altos, CA, to incorporate R2’s computer-aided detection (CAD) technology into Kodak’s CR and DR systems.
