Angeion Corporation (NASDAQ: ANGN) announced that it has been awarded a three-year contract with Premier Purchasing Partners L.P., the group-purchasing unit of Premier Inc. of Charlotte, NC and a leading performance improvement alliance for healthcare providers. The agreement is for Angeion’s complete line of MedGraphics® cardiorespiratory diagnostic systems, including related supplies and services. Effective July 1, 2011, Premier members will have direct access to specially negotiated pricing and terms for MedGraphics systems that diagnose heart and lung disorders while in their earliest stages and monitor therapy across the spectrum of care for such conditions as heart failure or asthma and other forms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
“We are proud to have been selected to supply Premier members for the next three years with our full line of cardiorespiratory diagnostic systems and services,” said Phil Smith, Angeion’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This agreement will provide Premier’s broad base of members easier access to our innovative technologies and world-class services while at the same time, offering them a greater array of options to achieve successful outcomes and effective care management for their patients.”
