Louis H. (Larry) Miller has been promoted to president of Marconi Health Care Products. Miller, who was previously vice president and general manager of HCP, has become only the third president in HCP’s history. Miller will emphasize e-business initiatives revolving around the imaging distributor’s Web site, marconihcp.com.

In other news, HCP has signed a three-year agreement with Broadlane, which specializes in the delivery of supply chain services to the healthcare industry. The contract extends an existing contract and contains two one-year renewal options. The deal is potentially worth more than $30 million in annual sales. HCP has also entered into a relationship with Deus Technologies to distribute that company’s Rapid-Screen RS-2000. The system uses computer-aided detection to identify regions possibly associated with early-stage lung cancer.
