Aliso Viejo, California, UNITED STATES

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cianna Medical’s SAVI SCOUT® Radar Breast Localization System is one of the medical innovations that was showcased in front of thousands of healthcare providers at Premier Inc.’s 2018 Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition on June 19. 

Cianna Medical’s SCOUT®  radar technology was featured during the conference’s 10th annual Innovation Celebration, an event recognizing advancements in healthcare and highlighting suppliers dedicated to furthering innovation and improving patient outcomes in the industry.

“Cianna Medical shares Premier’s commitment to providing valuable products to our alliance members that are safe, high-quality and cost-effective,” said Michael J. Alkire, Chief Operating Officer, Premier. “These innovations can truly benefit providers in our shared work to transform healthcare.”

Clinicians and other health system members of Premier selected the SCOUT system 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 SCOUT system is uniquely suited for marking tumors and biopsy sites prior to neoadjuvant therapy.  The SCOUT reflector does not interfere with MRI studies so patients are not restricted in the types of imaging modalities they may need.

With seven peer-reviewed publications and over 20 clinical abstracts, the SCOUT system has been proven to be easy to use and provides accurate detection and precise localization.  SCOUT also has been shown to improve radiology work flow and significantly reduce OR delays. SCOUT has received significant recognition from medical societies and industry associations including the 2016 Scientific Impact Award and the 2017 Gold Award for Medical Design Excellence Awards.

Beyond the technology, Cianna Medical is committed to helping healthcare professionals in implementing a wire-free localization program through SCOUTCare, an award-winning program that provides multi-modality training for radiologists, surgeons and allied health professionals.  It includes customized implementation planning, certification of the clinical team and facility, coding and reimbursement guidance as well as assistance for uninsured patients. 

“The SCOUT system provides significant value to hospitals looking to improve operational efficiency while transforming the patient experience,” said Jill Anderson, President and CEO of Cianna Medical. “We are honored to receive this recognition as we continue on our mission to reduce the burden breast cancer places on women and their families.”

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 1,300 suppliers.
