TAIPEI, Taiwan– Flat Medical has been selected to exhibit EpiFaith® Syringe, a visualization solution for epidural safety, at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange. Vizient, Inc, the nation’s largest member-driven health care performance improvement company, will hold the Exchange virtually Sept. 21-23.
The annual Innovative Technology Exchange offers selected suppliers the unique opportunity to demonstrate their technologies to supply chain and clinical leaders from Vizient’s member hospitals and subject matter experts who serve on their supply councils. Each technology will showcase how it improves clinical outcomes, enhances safety or drives incremental improvements to health care delivery or business models.
With its exquisite and physician-centered design, EpiFaith® can help providers identify the arrival of epidural space via a clear and simple signal, and provide the ability to manipulate the needle in a stable and flexible fashion. With these improvements, EpiFaith® can save more than $60 on average for each epidural procedure due to its safety design.
“We are super excited that we will be sharing EpiFaith® on the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange this year,” Said Dr. Joseph Luo, the CEO of Flat Medical. “Assisting the providers to do epidural in a safer and easier manner is our major goal, and we are eager to demonstrate how EpiFaith® can help you reduce the risks and elevate the medical quality with significant cost savings.”
“Suppliers apply to attend the Exchange hoping their product will be awarded an Innovative Technology contract, which signals health care providers of their product’s unique qualities,” said Debbie Archer, procurement compliance director, Vizient. “The selection process for which suppliers will be chosen to exhibit at the Exchange is rigorous, and this technology has earned a coveted position in this event.”
The annual Innovative Technology Exchange is part of Vizient’s Innovative Technology Program that includes product review of supplier-submitted technologies by member-led councils and task forces. Since 2003, Vizient has received over 2,800 technology submissions as part of its Innovative Technology Program.
