SANTA CLARA, Calif., December 1, 2022 — Glassbeam, Inc., a pioneer in data and predictive analytics for connected medical machines, today announced that Rhonda Longmore-Grund will be joining the Board of Directors of Glassbeam. Ms. Longmore-Grund is the former President & CEO of Alliance Healthcare Services, a leading provider of comprehensive radiology and oncology services, partnering with over 1,000 hospitals across 46 states in the US to provide high quality, compassionate care to ~1 million patients each year. When Alliance was acquired in 2021 by Akumin Inc. (NASDAQ: AKU), Ms. Longmore-Grund served as President, Co-CEO and a Director of the newly merged Akumin/Alliance company to facilitate a smooth transition through mid-2022.
Ms. Longmore-Grund will join Glassbeam at an opportune time when the company is poised for scaling its solutions and operations in the connected medical equipment world, both in the US and abroad in Europe, Japan and Asia. As healthcare becomes leaner, hospitals and health systems must evolve their care models and adopt technology solutions that support efficient utilization of medical equipment infrastructure to deliver high-quality, lower-cost care. With Glassbeams’ Clinsights solutions, hospitals and healthcare providers can implement intelligent analytics to better understand the needs of both patients and staff, create a more seamless patient experience, and deliver higher standards of care.

I am extremely excited to bring that experience to the Glassbeam Board and its management team as it navigates its way through future growth and market challenges”.
