Kadiri Health LLC, a supplier of tissue regenerative technology products, announced its HELICOLL™ biological skin substitute product, has received an Innovative Technology contract from Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the country. The contract was based on the recommendation of HELICOLL by hospital experts in this product category who serve on one of Vizient’s member-led councils.
Documented evidence shows, HELICOLL is a biological skin substitute that results in an early infiltration of new blood capillaries within four to five days after application. “HELICOLL was engineered as a sub-molecular level Nano-technology based biomatrix. HELICOLL provides superiority over existing products in the market in the areas of better patient care and safety as evidenced by its human clinical studies and its vast usage over several thousands of cases during the past two decades,” said Dr. S. Gunasekaran, CEO, EnColl Corporation, HELICOLL’s manufacturer.
“Kadiri Health, HELICOLL’s exclusive distributor, is pleased to have a contract with Vizient that offers its members enhanced savings for this next generation product. Clinicians in all healthcare settings are charged with improving the quality of care, reducing costs, and improving patient satisfaction. This is an important product available for those needing a biological skin substitute solution. HELICOLL provides an effective treatment and based on its clinical efficacy, compared to other comparable products in the marketplace, is especially useful for the treatment of diabetic leg ulcer and burn wounds,” said Dr. Christopher Cox, Owner, Senior Consultant, Kadiri Health.
“Hospitals and providers are looking for innovations that offer unique and cumulative benefit over other products available on the market today. Our member council determined this technology met the criteria to be recognized with the Innovative Technology designation. Congratulations to Kadiri Health on receiving this status,” said Debbie Archer, director of procurement and Vizient Innovative Technology Program leader.
