Olathe, Kan., Sept. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NTrainer System by Innara Health has been named an Innovative Technology by Vizient, Inc., and will be exhibited at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange Sept. 29 in Dallas. The NTrainer System is an FDA-cleared solution that assesses and develops non-nutritive suck (NNS) in infants and newborns born prematurely.
The expo attracts more than 2,000 clinicians from across the United States to learn about new technologies that improve clinical outcomes, enhance safety or drive improvements to the health care business model.
“It’s an honor for the NTrainer to be named an Innovative Technology and an exciting opportunity to bring unique solutions to the Vizient membership,” said Michael Peck, president and CEO of Innara Health. “We are eager to show the clinicians in attendance how the NTrainer System can help them shorten length of stay (LOS) for premature infants in the NICU, improving clinical efficiency and patient outcomes at their hospitals.”
At the event, Innara will have the opportunity to demonstrate its solution for clinicians and hospital executives, and present clinical evidence in support of its technology, including the recently released study that showed use of the NTrainer System to provide patterned oral stimulation resulted in significant reduction in LOS in preterm infants.
Vizient is the largest member-owned health care company in the country with a diverse membership and customer base that includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute health care providers.
