Mindray Signs Agreement with HealthTrust Purchasing Group, L.P. to Provide Anesthesia Equipment and Supplies
MAHWAH, N.J., April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Mindray Medical International Limited (NYSE: MR), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices worldwide, announced today that it has been selected by HealthTrust Purchasing Group, L.P., (HealthTrust) as a provider of anesthesia equipment and supplies for members in 1,400 not-for-profit and for-profit acute care facilities, as well as 10,600 ambulatory surgery centers, physician practices and alternate care sites.
With this agreement, Mindray can offer its A Series Anesthesia System Solutions to HealthTrust members. Both the A3 and the A5 in the series are easy to use but offer superior performance, thus enabling anesthesiologists to meet the rising challenges in today's complex clinical environment. The products' 15-inch touch screen allows clinicians to select ventilation settings more easily so that they can spend more time on patient care. Mindray is committed to improving interoperability by using open architecture and profiles such as Health Level Seven (HL7). To further simplify interface communication, the A Series has been verified to comply with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise – Patient Care Domain (IHE - PCD) profiles, which are based on the HL7 and other applicable standards.
"We are very excited about this collaboration. This is a huge win for Mindray and a significant benefit for HealthTrust members who can now have access to our A Series anesthesia systems," said Thomas Barford, Vice President - Perioperative Systems at Mindray North America. "A partnership with HealthTrust is respected and coveted by the industry because of their reputation for compliance as well as their large base of member hospitals and surgery centers."
