Group Purchasing Organization Vizient is inviting suppliers interested in showcasing their innovative technology to hospital decision makers from across the country are encouraged to submit their application now to participate in the 2020 Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange. The event is part of Vizient’s Spring Connections Summit, which takes place the week of March 30 to April 3 at the Wynn in Las Vegas. The deadline to apply is Nov. 22.
Since 2003, Vizient has reviewed over 2,600 technologies as part of its Innovative Technology Program. The review process may result in an Innovative Technology contract with Vizient, as it did for EcoMed Solutions' novel blood management system recently.
The Innovative Technology Exchange offers up to 100 selected suppliers the unique opportunity to connect with hospital decision makers to discuss and demonstrate how their technology improves clinical outcomes, enhances safety or drives incremental improvements to health care delivery or business models.
“The Innovative Technology Exchange is a hands-on event, which provides clinicians and supply chain professionals the opportunity to interact with suppliers who are bringing innovative solutions to the health care industry. The direct interaction gives attendees a deeper understanding of the new technology, which enables them to confidently discuss it with physicians and other colleagues,” said Debbie Archer, Procurement Director at Vizient in a news release.
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.
