TUSTIN, Calif., July 31, 2019 – The AlphenixTM  platform is one of the medical innovations that was showcased in front of thousands of healthcare providers at Premier Inc.’s 2019 Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition on June 18.

Canon Medical’s Alphenix family of interventional systems was debuted during the conference’s 11th annual Innovation Celebration, an event recognizing advancements in healthcare and highlighting suppliers dedicated to furthering innovation and improving patient outcomes in the industry.

“Canon Medical shares Premier’s commitment to providing valuable products to our alliance members that are high-quality and cost-effective,” said David A. Hargraves, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain, Premier. “These innovations can truly benefit providers in our shared work to transform healthcare.”

Clinicians and other health system members of Premier selected the Alphenix platform to be showcased at the Innovation Celebration due to its uniqueness, ability to have an impact on unmet clinical needs and potential to improve patient care.

The innovative line of interventional systems delivers images with clarity and precision and combines industry-leading dose optimization technologies, enhanced workflow and a new set of features to provide patients with accurate and fast imaging.

The Alphenix Biplane and Alphenix Core + systems within the family also include an all-new Hi-Def Detector (High-Definition Flat Panel Detector) with the highest image resolution in the market to help clinicians see finer details during complex interventional procedures such as stent positioning and stent apposition, wire and catheter navigation through the stent struts, and observation of coil deployment.

“Canon Medical is proud to be recognized for our commitment to innovation in medical imaging technology through the Alphenix family, a platform that was designed to deliver solutions for unmet needs and create new opportunities for innovation through intervention,” said Casey Waldo, director, Vascular Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “Armed with clearer images to see finer details, this product line is opening doors in both clinical care and patient safety by enabling health care providers to make more confident clinical decisions for better patient outcomes.”

Any supplier, regardless of whether the company is contracted with Premier, can be considered for participation in the Innovation Celebration. Premier contracts with more than 1,400 suppliers.
