Through the partnership, HARD gains the ability to optimize all of its product-focused content and technical details in the collaborative OpenMarkets Exchange for healthcare equipment. All healthcare providers in the OpenMarkets community will now be able to access HARD’s detailed specifications, images and videos to streamline procurement.
