MEMPHIS, Tenn. – (June 23, 2015) – Christie Medical Holdings, Inc., the global leader in portable vein scanner systems, today announced that it has partnered with Attainia, an industry leader in healthcare equipment planning solutions, to make information on Christie’s VeinViewer products, the clinician preferred vein illumination system, available to users of Attainia’s cloud-based software solutions. Healthcare facilities now have fast, easy access to Christie VeinViewer® devices including VeinViewer Vision2 and VeinViewer Flex through Attainia’s extensive catalog database.
“Being a part of Attainia’s catalog will allow Christie VeinViewer products to be accessible to healthcare purchasing supply chain members, and help them to facilitate a simplified and streamlined approach to product education and ordering during the critical phase of their capital investments,” said George Pinho, Christie Medical Holdings president.
The Christie VeinViewer system is the first and only device to use harmless near-infrared light to detect patient vasculature and then project a real-time, high definition image of the vein pattern directly on the skin surface. Facilities that have implemented the VeinViewer imaging system have seen key results including an increase in first-stick success and patient satisfaction scores. One facility in Kentucky, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, conducted a study to measure avoidance of central lines placed only due to unsuccessful peripheral IV access. They avoided over 675 peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) in a two year period, equating to a $475,300 cost savings within just one department. Only VeinViewer can provide pre-, during and post-access benefits throughout the entire vascular access procedure.
