Carestream Receives New Innovative Technology Contract From Vizient for OnSight 3-D Cone Beam CT System

May 31, 2017 — Carestream Health has received an Innovative Technology contract from Vizient Inc. for its Carestream OnSight 3-D Extremity System. Vizient is among the largest member-driven healthcare performance improvement companies in the country.

The contract was based on a recommendation of Carestream’s OnSight 3-D Extremity System by hospital experts with expertise in this category who serve on one of Vizient’s member-led councils. Innovative Technology contracts are reserved for technologies that demonstrate an ability to enhance clinical care or patient safety, and those that improve an organization’s care delivery and business model.
 
The system performs high-quality, low-dose 3-D extremity exams using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology. In addition to being compact and easy to install, it captures high-quality 3-D images, including weight-bearing exams of lower extremities under normal load conditions. Unlike traditional CT systems, the CBCT system has a large-area detector that can capture a 3-D image of the patient in a single rotation, which takes only 25 seconds.

Vizient gave Carestream a three-year Innovative Technology contract.

“Due to the number of products and services being released and marketed as ‘innovative,’ member hospitals truly value the thorough innovative technology review process in place at Vizient to help them identify products worth further evaluation at their own facilities,” said Debbie Archer, director of procurement and leader of Vizient’s Innovative Technology Program for suppliers. “After a full review of the OnSight 3-D Extremity System, Vizient’s member council agreed this solution offers unique and incremental benefits over other products available on the market today, and recommended it for an Innovative Technology contract. We are pleased to award this new contract to Carestream Health.”

Vizient Inc. represents the combined strengths of the organizations formerly known as VHA Inc., University HealthSystem Consortium, Novation and MedAssets’ Spend and Clinical Resource Management.
