Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
ZONARE, the pioneer and developer of next generation ultrasound technology, announced it has been selected by HealthTrust Purchasing Group, L.P. (HealthTrust) as a provider of medical ultrasound for the 1,400 acute care facilities that HealthTrust supports. ZONARE will provide ultrasound solutions to help HealthTrust’s hospital providers manage clinical compliance accountability in today’s increasingly regulated health-care environment. ZONARE offers its solutions through using a sophisticated platform of evidence-based, clinical intelligence enabled by its proprietary ZONE Sonography™ technology (ZST).
“We are honored to be selected by this renowned purchasing group,” said Tim Marcotte, president and CEO of ZONARE. “We believe our upgradable Living Technology™ will provide HealthTrust members with state-of-the-art ultrasound solutions and excellence in patient care both today and in the future.”
ZONARE’s Living Technology delivers ultrasound imaging excellence based on a dynamic and open architecture that allows continual platform evolvement to meet the changing needs of clinicians. ZONE Sonography technology is an innovative approach to echo data acquisition and image formation. Using a small number of large "zones," ZST acquires ultrasound data up to ten times faster than conventional systems and implements the full reality of data acquisition and management in software rather than hardware.
The contract with HealthTrust enables its members to purchase ZONARE’s portable ultrasound with the company’s unique technology while offering a highly mobile, ergonomic system that is upgradeable as ZST advances helping to ensure a substantial return on investment.
“By working closely with HealthTrust, we can enable its members to utilize high quality ultrasound which also offers significant value for a wide range of imaging applications,” Priscilla Ryland, vice president of business development and corporate accounts for ZONARE. “We look forward to our association with HealthTrust and supporting each individual member with our breakthrough technology while providing outstanding customer care.”
