Kimberly-Clark Awarded Novation Contract for Patient-Warming System


ROSWELL, Ga. ­- Kimberly-Clark Health Care announced today that Novation, the contracting arm of VHA Inc. and the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), has awarded the company a three-year contract for the KIMBERLY-CLARK* Patient Warming System. 

 After a thorough product and documentation review by the Novation Anesthesia Council and Novation Perioperative Council, which include clinicians and purchasing executives from VHA and UHC member hospitals, the KIMBERLY-CLARK* Patient Warming System was found to offer proprietary technological advantages in managing patient temperature during specific procedures.  Therefore, the contract was not competitively bid, but was awarded through Novations new technology evaluation process.

We applaud Novations dedication to ensuring that VHA and UHC member facilities have access to savings on the latest technological advancements in warming technology, in this case, direct conduction, said Tim Dye, general manager of critical care and temperature management for Kimberly-Clark Health Care. We are pleased that the Councils found that, through the proper use of our warming system, facilities can reduce the negative clinical and financial impacts of hypothermia, the most frequent and preventable surgical complication.
