PLYMOUTH, Minn., Oct. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Miga Solutions, developer of the pioneering Benchmarking 2.0 (sm) methodology that helps hospitals reduce medical equipment lifecycle costs, today announced that it has been awarded a contract with Vizient, Inc. the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the country. The three-year relationship will give Vizient members optimal pricing on Miga’s industry-leading asset disposition program, as well as the option to utilize the full breadth of Miga’s medical equipment lifecycle savings solution and its innovative Equipment Value Management System® (EVMS) platform.
“We are pleased to provide cutting-edge resources to Vizient members to address the evolving needs of today’s hospitals and medical facilities,” said Peter Robson, CEO of Miga Solutions. “Asset disposition is a critical part of an effective medical equipment lifecycle strategy and is a cornerstone solution of the Miga platform. We’re excited to deliver our proven solution for a recurring business need that every hospital faces and look forward to extending the many medical equipment cost savings solutions that are part of Miga’s platform.”
