SAN DIEGO, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanomedics, Inc. (OTC: SIMH); Sanomedics, an international medical technology company focused on developing, manufacturing, and acquiring cutting-edge technology, products and services, announced today that their Thermomedics subsidiary recently strengthened its penetration of the Professional Healthcare vital signs business with the signing of a long-term agreement with HealthTrust Purchasing Group, LP, a world-renowned provider of healthcare supply chain expertise and contracting.
The 3-year agreement goes into effect July 1, 2015. The contract, via distribution partner, Kentec Medical, Inc. of Irvine, California, aligns Thermomedics' Caregiver® TouchFree™ Clinical Thermometer with the highest member-compliance GPO in the nation.
Based in Brentwood, Tennessee, HPG serves an extremely broad and compliant membership whose Clinical Advisory Boards (comprised of expert clinicians) govern and approve all contract awards to allow for the highest compliance at the best price.
Keith Houlihan, the Company's President, commented, "This arrangement helps to confirm the growing demand for the Caregiver Thermometer's unique combination of accuracy, ease-of-use, reduced cross-contamination, speed, and cost-savings for HPG's broad base of hospitals, medical office, and all aspects of the continuum of care. Given its competitive pricing model and the fact that no costly probe covers are required for it to deliver results, we're confident that Caregiver is the superior choice among thermometers in the market today and look forward to seeing increased interest in and adoption of it through this strategic partnership."
"The Caregiver's ability to perform in the high patient-volume environment of today's healthcare venues is enhanced by the availability of the items that hospitals have demanded: convenient mounting systems, security protection, in-house biomedical calibration support, and attractive service/warranty programs," noted Ron Benincasa, Executive VP of Marketing and Sales. "This 3-year contract will ensure that HPG will be at the forefront of innovative thermometry." Distribution will be handled by the Ameritus division of Kentec Medical, Thermomedics' supply partner.
Designed and developed by the team that first invented Infrared Tympanic Thermometry, led by Thermomedics' Chief Technical Officer, Gary O'Hara, the Caregiver is becoming a primary choice of hospitals and clinics across the nation.
