The Urology Division of Medline - the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies – has joined the OpenMarkets Community to streamline the purchase and access of urological technology and capital equipment.

“We’re excited to have a leader in medical supplies and clinical solutions join the OpenMarkets Community,” said Michael Fineberg, CEO of OpenMarkets. “The Urology Division of Medline is innovative and extraordinarily focused on delighting customers. So are we. Hospitals, Health Systems and Clinics using OpenMarkets will now have rich insight to Medline’s urological technology and online access to their experienced team. This improves collaboration and eliminates waste for all.”

OpenMarkets will feature two popular bladder scanners from Medline: the BioCon 750 and BioCon 900, both critical tools in the reduction of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). Data from the 800+ hospitals using OpenMarkets to research, manage and buy equipment shows Medline as a preferred provider in the bladder scanner market.  Users of OpenMarkets can now find these bladder scanners in the platform and be immediately connected to Medline’s team for access to clinical data and technical specs.

“We take pride in the craftsmanship and reliability of the BioCon Bladder Scanners,” says Medline Urology Division President Sarah Dickinson.” “The scanners’ exclusive BladderPoint™ technology enables clinicians to more quickly locate the bladder for accurate measurements to help determine if a catheter is needed. And they scan 30% deeper into the abdomen than any other scanners, increasing the ease of use for bariatric patients. Studies show bladder ultrasounds can help reduce catheterization rates by 50%, thus helping to significantly reduce CAUTI rates.  BioCon bladder scanners, in conjunction with other best practice CAUTI prevention techniques outlined in guidelines such as those by the CDC or ANA, may thereby improve patient outcomes and minimize costs associated with CAUTI.”

“We’re here to support hospitals seeking more choices, better value and efficiency,” continues Fineberg; “It’s inspiring to be aligned with Medline.”
