PARDES-HANNA, Israel, June 18, 2019 -- RedDress’s ActiGraft is one of the medical innovations that was showcased in front of thousands of healthcare providers at Premier Inc.’s 2019 Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition on June 18.
RedDress’s ActiGraft was debuted during the conference’s 11th annual Innovation Celebration, an event recognizing advancements in healthcare and highlighting suppliers dedicated to furthering innovation and improving patient outcomes in the industry. “RedDress shares Premier’s commitment to providing valuable products to our alliance members that are safe, high-quality and cost-effective,” said David A. Hargraves, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, Premier. “These innovations can truly benefit providers in our shared work to transform healthcare.” Clinicians and other health system members of Premier selected ActiGraft to be showcased at the Innovation Celebration due to its uniqueness, ability to have an impact on unmet clinical needs and potential to improve patient care. ActiGraft, based on RedDress’ proprietary patented technology, is the first wound care product that enables health care providers to produce—in real time—in vitro blood clots from a patient’s whole blood. Once applied, the blood clot tissue serves as a protective covering and supports wound healing processes which naturally occur in the patient's body. “ActiGraft: There is No Substitute” Any supplier, regardless of whether the company is contracted with Premier, can be considered for participation in the Innovation Celebration. Premier contracts with more than 1,400 suppliers. For more detailed information, including a video of ActiGraft, visit: http://breakthroughs.premierinc.com/innovation-celebration-2019/
