OASYS Healthcare selected by Premier Healthcare Alliance
Uxbridge, Ontario (January 10, 2012) OASYS Healthcare Corporation, a recognized innovator and leading provider of integrated operating room (OR) control systems, announced that they have been selected as a preferred vendor for the Premier healthcare alliance. Under the agreement, OASYS Healthcare will supply OR Integration and Automation solutions to Premier members effective January 1, 2012.
Integrated OR's are quickly becoming the standard in hospitals and surgery centers. A fully integrated OR is defined by a central control system that processes information from video and other data-sources. Integrated ORs optimize the use of time, space, information and expertise for faster turn-around times and fewer errors. As the demand for surgical procedures increases, leading hospitals are embracing this challenge by installing this innovative technology and as a result are seeing significant improvement in patient outcomes and OR efficiency. The future of integrated systems is very bright. Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData, an international market research and consulting group focused on providing market intelligence recently stated that "by 2016 more than 50% of all operating rooms in the United States will be integrated OR's".
"The adoption of our products, in particular our OR control systems, has been exceptional," said Rob Mann, General Manager of OASYS Healthcare Corporation. "Our customers are benefiting from our ability to deliver leading edge systems at an affordable price. We are excited about the opportunity to bring these value added solutions to the Premier membership".
OASYS Healthcare solutions are intended to simplify the implementation of an integrated OR. With their patent pending design tool, fully integrated environments can be designed in hours, not days. Using a database of industry standard components, clients can choose the best of breed technology for their facility. This simplified approach allows systems to be implemented in a shorter timeframe and for less cost.
Premier members now have discounted access to the OASYS Healthcare full line of integrated OR Control Systems and associated peripherals, including medical displays, professional displays, medical recorders, room cameras and sound systems.
