INDIANAPOLIS, April 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Solstice Medical announced its ClinicalPulse™ has received Innovative Technology designation from Vizient, the leading healthcare services company that serves the more than 100,000 members and affiliates of VHA Inc., UHC, Children's Hospital Association, and Provista. The designation was based on reviews of ClinicalPulse™ by hospital experts who attended Vizient's Innovative Technology Expo in November. The annual event provides medical technology suppliers the opportunity to demonstrate their product and gain direct feedback from onsite clinical experts and health care providers on the impact their products may have on improving clinical care, safety, or benefits to organization's care and business models.
ClinicalPulse® allows hospitals to leverage existing surgical, clinical, and supply chain data into a central, cloud-based repository of familiar data sets that will enhance collaboration, improve decision making, and improve patient care.
"ClinicalPulse® is revolutionizing how healthcare institutions manage cross-functional areas via the power of real-time data management, allowing leaders to be more responsive with strategic adjustments to system-wide operations resulting in cost savings and efficiencies," explains Dan Sands, Chief Executive Officer.
"Vizient is committed to providing the members we serve with leading-edge technologies that deliver new clinical and operational benefits from what is currently available in the market today," said Debbie Archer, Director of Procurement and leader of the Innovative Technology program for suppliers. "After a reviewing Solstice Medical and ClinicalPulse® at our annual Innovative Expo, the hospital experts who attended agreed the product offers unique and incremental benefit over other products available on the market today, and recommended it for the Innovative Technology designation."
Since 2003, more than 2000 new and innovative products and technologies have been submitted through the Vizient Innovative Technology program. Vizient works with member-led councils and task forces to identify and review potentially innovative products. If it is determined that a product is innovative, a contract may be awarded outside of Vizient's competitive bid cycle.
