Agreement enables interested Vizient members, including academic medical centers, acute care facilities, and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), to purchase Conformis knee and hip replacement solutions, including its new Image-to-Implant® Platinum Services℠ Program
BILLERICA, Mass., Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Conformis, Inc., (NASDAQ: CFMS), a leading medical device company that features personalized knee and hip replacement products, today announced it has entered into a multi-year agreement with Vizient, Inc., the nation’s largest member-driven health care performance improvement company.
“We are excited to offer personalized orthopedic implants to Vizient’s large membership of healthcare facilities through this contract. As more orthopedic patients and surgeons seek personalized solutions, increased awareness and ease of access to our product portfolio is more important than ever. The Vizient agreement connects us to a significant number of providers, many of which have limited access and awareness of our products and our new Platinum Services Program,” said Mark Augusti, Chief Executive Officer and President of Conformis.
The agreement gives increased access to the entire Conformis knee and hip portfolio to Vizient’s membership base, which is comprised of academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute health care providers, and includes:
- Identity Imprint™, a personalized knee replacement system;
- Image-to-Implant® Platinum Services Program, a patient-elected deluxe upgrade option to obtain a fully personalized knee replacement implant; and,
- Cordera™ Match Hip System, a personalized primary hip replacement solution.
Conformis implants improve efficiency and reduce overall costs for medical facilities. Researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle found that fully personalized total knee arthroplasty is cost-effective in comparison to a standard, off-the-shelf implant. Ongoing research suggests that fully personalized implants further reduce total costs to the healthcare system because patients recover more quickly and are less likely to require follow-up corrective (revision) surgeries.
