Who We Are
Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC) reaches more than 25,000 healthcare professionals in cardiology, interventional cardiology and cath labs across the United States. These influential buying team members rely on DAIC's award-winning editorial content and comparison charts as a unique research tool for specifying, recommending and approving technology/device purchases.
History of DAIC
DAIC had its beginnings as a publication called Medical Electronics & Equipment News, founded by Chilton Publishing in Philadelphia in 1961. In 1975, it was acquired by Reilly Communications Group, and became known as MEEN shortly thereafter. As time passed and the industry evolved, the publication was divided into two new brands, MEEN Imaging Technology News and MEEN Cardiology/Critical Care Technology — which today is known as Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC). In 2009, RCG was acquired by Scranton Gillette Communications.
In January 2020, Park Ridge, N.J.-based publisher Wainscot Media acquired Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC) and its sister publication Imaging Technology News (ITN) from Scranton Gillette Communications of Arlington Heights, Ill. “We’re impressed by the recent growth trajectories of these brands,” said Mark Dowden, CEO of Wainscot. “Both DAIC and ITN have become increasingly influential in their fields, and that’s a credit to the publisher’s embrace of digital opportunities. Dedication to audience engagement has produced market-leading growth in website traffic, and a focus on analytics is yielding audience insights that help to match buyers and sellers.
“The deal is a natural outgrowth of our medical publishing heritage,” continued Dowden, referring to Dowden Health Media, the predecessor company to Wainscot, which specialized in medical journals and continuing medical education. The acquisition expands Wainscot’s portfolio of more than 50 publications, which range from healthy living and luxury lifestyle titles to city and regional magazines.
