Intralign recently received a highly sought-after “Innovative Technology” award from Novation, the leading health care supply chain expertise, analytics and contracting company. Intralign earned the distinction for its Intra-Operative Support service, which enables hospitals and surgeons to provide better quality of care and increase surgical throughput by supplying highly skilled Surgical First Assists (SFAs) to the operating room.
As part of a very competitive review process, Intralign’s Intra-Operative Support service was thoroughly evaluated by hospital member-led councils and found to have an incremental benefit over other products that focus on improving patient care or reducing the risk of harm to patients and care givers. Intralign SFAs can help reduce surgery time by 30 percent and increase surgeon throughput by 42 percent, all without sacrificing quality of care.
The significant designation was awarded after Novation’s Innovative Technology Expo in October and is only provided once a year to a small portion of products that are already available on contract through Novation.
