September 15, 2021 – Arjo was awarded an Innovative Technology Contract for the Provizio SEM Scanner with Vizient, Inc. (Irving, TX).
The contract, effective September 15, 2021, signifies to Vizient members the Provizio SEM Scanner’s unique qualities that potentially bring improvement to the healthcare industry.
In 2020, Arjo acquired an equity stake in Bruin Biometrics giving Arjo exclusive global distribution rights for Bruin Biometrics’ portable SEM Scanner, which allows early identification of increased pressure injury risk and thereby can help to reduce patient suffering and healthcare costs.
Arjo initiated the launch of the Provizio SEM scanner in the beginning of 2021. Currently, more than 150 customers around the world have completed evaluations, or are planning to evaluate, the Provizio SEM Scanner.
Innovative Technology contracts are awarded based on recommendations of healthcare experts serving on a Vizient member-led council who review potentially innovative products and identify technologies that potentially enhance clinical care, patient safety, healthcare worker safety or improve business operations of healthcare organizations.
