Cardinal signs agreement with Novation to supply custom procedure kits

Cardinal Health : 29 November, 2007  (New Product)
A three-year dual source agreement has been reached between Cardinal Health and Novation, the leading contracting services company, to provide Presource custom procedure kits and Procedure Based Delivery System (PBDS) modules to the 11,500 hospital and surgery centre members of the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), VHA and Provista.
Under the agreement, which is effective February 1, Cardinal Health will supply these customers with Presource kits and PBDS modules for all areas within the acute care hospital and surgery centre environment, including the operating room, labour and delivery, cardiac catheterization lab and interventional radiology lab.

Cardinal Health works collaboratively with health care customers to use the Presource Process to assess procedure pack needs, design and deliver custom solutions to meet those needs and then measure results to adapt procedure pack solutions to address evolving requirements.

As part of the agreement, Cardinal Health will also use its recently introduced Preferred Choice Program to assist UHC, VHA and Provista members in improving product standardisation and cost management.

Through this programme, Cardinal Health works with each customer to identify all products needed for a Presource kit, and then recommends clinically equivalent options for those products. By providing high-clinical-quality product alternatives, this program helps customers to reduce supply costs while maintaining their focus on patient and practitioner safety.

'We look forward to expanding our relationship with Novation by providing procedure pack solutions to thousands of UHC, VHA and Provista hospitals and surgery centres, nationwide,' said Steve Inacker, president and general manager of Cardinal Health's Presource Products and Services business. 'We're excited to deliver cost-effective solutions that will help Novation alliance members improve productivity and patient care.'
