The NEBULAE® I System, High-flow Laparoscopic Insufflator, has been awarded an Innovative Technology contract from Vizient, Inc. the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the country. The contract was based on a recommendation of NEBULAE I System by hospital experts in this category who serve on one of Vizient’s member-led councils.
The NEBULAE I System is designed to provide optimal visualization, clinical and economic value by managing the pneumoperitoneum environment for a broad array of laparoscopic procedures from pediatric to bariatric and robotic. Its modular design allows the surgeon and hospital to tailor the features used to efficiently manage spend by only adding functionality when needed. The system also includes the ability to provide up to 20 liters-per-minute of smoke evacuation with stable pneumoperitoneum while helping to protect scopes from fogging through a combination of the NEBULAE High-flow Smoke Evacuation Tubing Set, TAP Sensing Tubing Set, and the reusable in-line CO₂ gas warmer.
“We are excited to bring NTI’s 38 years of insufflation innovation to Vizient members and help optimize both spend and performance in creating optimal laparoscopic and robotic surgical environments.”
“The NEBULAE I System's ability to deliver high-flow in house gas and cylinder modes will bring greater utilization and access to all laparoscopic surgeries.”
Vizient represents a diverse membership base that includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute health care providers and represents approximately $100 billion in annual purchasing volume. Through its Innovative Technology Program, Vizient works with member-led councils and task forces to review potentially innovative products. If it is determined that a product is innovative, Vizient may award a contract outside of the competitive bid cycle.
