Luminetx (Memphis) reported it has signed a three-year vendor contract with Amerinet (St. Louis), a group purchasing organization.
With the agreement, Amerinet’s 24,000-plus members, of which more than 2,000 are acute care institutions, will have access to custom Amerinet group purchasing discounts as they relate to the VeinViewer, a vascular imaging system made by Luminetx. VeinViewer uses a combination of near-infrared light and patented technologies to image vascular structures and project their location directly on the surface of the skin. This provides clinicians with a non-invasive adjunct technology for clinical treatments and procedures including IV insertions, PICC line insertions, routine venipuncture, blood and plasma donations and treatment for varicose and spider veins.
Greg Candelmo, VP of U.S. sales at Luminetx, said, “Solid GPO contracts with industry leaders like Amerinet open significant doors for our sales team in terms of laser-targeting the finest healthcare institutions across the country.”
Rodney Schutt, COO at Luminetx, said, “Not only will this endeavor enhance the patient experience, but it also will allow hospitals and clinics to be able to maximize savings and re-invest those into patient care.”
