InterMed Resources Tennessee and UroViu Corp, a company that develops and commercializes highly portable single-use endoscopy platforms, announced their new partnership with InterMed Resources Tennessee as the exclusive distributor to HealthTrust Purchasing Group for all UroViu products.
Under the agreement, UroViu will sell its entire product line at a contracted price for distribution exclusively through InterMed Resources Tennessee to HealthTrust Purchasing Group's 1,600 member facilities throughout the United States.
"HealthTrust Purchasing Group represents a significant opportunity to access a large number of hospitals," said Bruce OuYang, President and CEO of UroViu Corp. "UroViu's cost-effective, ready-anytime, and time-saving solution will enable HealthTrust facilities to implement single-use cystoscopy and hysteroscopy, an efficient, safe, and reliable option for their patients, in clinics as well as acute and emergency care settings, eliminating the need for dedicated procedure rooms."
The single-use platform ranges from a 12-Fr diagnostic semi-rigid cystoscope and equivalent hysteroscope, a 14-Fr injection cystoscope with an integrated needle for drug delivery, to a flexible, deflectable, and rotatable 16.5-Fr cystoscope. Single-use endoscopy is a safe and reliable alternative to traditional reusable scopes that must be cleaned and sanitized after every use. The difficulty of servicing traditional scopes has led to FDA scrutiny due to inherent cross-contamination risks. UroViu's single-use scopes eliminate those risks.
"InterMed Resources is constantly on the search for the most innovative, cost-effective technology to deliver cutting-edge healthcare resources to our partners," pointed out Roger Biles, CEO of InterMed Resources. "We are very excited about what UroViu can deliver for HealthTrust members and their patients."
