With a Focus on Growth, Magnes Will Oversee all of Avail’s Commercial Activities
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – October 27, 2021 – Avail Medsystems, a pioneering healthcare technology company whose innovative audio/video telepresence platform facilitates real-time collaboration through interactive broadcasts of live procedures from the operating room, announced today the appointment of Ryan Magnes as President. Reporting to Founder and CEO Daniel Hawkins, Ryan will lead all commercial and customer-facing activities for the company. Together with Sales, Marketing and Field Service leadership, and teams, he will focus on the continued expansion of the Avail platform within a broad base of care settings, in order to serve providers and medical device companies who increasingly rely on the power of Avail’s remote OR access platform for medical collaboration and support.
“We started Avail to address a range of structural challenges that have emerged alongside the enormous changes in the healthcare and medical device industries over the last decade. These challenges directly impact access to clinical collaboration and the ability of the medical device industry to meet the evolving and expanding needs of providers at a time when technology advancements require higher levels of connectivity and industry support. Our Software as a Service (SaaS) based platform is built to address these challenges offering transformational opportunities and benefits within the healthcare industry. As we scale, we recognize focus and expertise, particularly in the area of SaaS, will be key to our continued growth,” Mr. Hawkins said. “Ryan brings a wealth of relevant expertise to Avail, and we are excited to work with him as he implements compelling and impactful strategies to expand access to our platform to a full range of providers and medical device companies.”
A leader with 25 years of commercial and healthcare industry experience, Mr. Magnes most recently ran Global Go-to-Market Strategy for Varian Multi-Disciplinary Oncology, a Siemens Healthineers company, offering Oncology-as-a-Service programs that bundle human and technical resources to support radiation oncology providers. Before that, he was Executive Vice President of Growth and Innovation at Medfusion, a patient-focused electronic health records and patient portal company, and Regional Vice President of Enterprise Sales for Waystar/Zirmed, a cloud-based revenue cycle management, SaaS platform for healthcare. He spent ten formative years at GE Healthcare in leadership and direct contributor roles.
“I am honored to work with the talented and forward-thinking team at Avail. I’m excited about the future, and the work we are doing to change the way the $200 billion medical device industry has operated for nearly 50 years,” Mr. Magnes said. “We expect to deliver meaningful operational efficiencies, and enable expanded access for healthcare and medical device partners, by providing procedure-room collaboration available anywhere, anytime, at the click of a button.”
In May 2021, Avail announced its move from a business incubator into a larger headquarters which was spawned by 200% single-year growth, a $100 million Series B funding round, the expansion of contracts with medical device industry partners, and the release of five software updates within six months.
