Tru-D SmartUVC Awarded National Contract by HealthTrust
MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Tru-D SmartUVC LLC has announced an agreement with HealthTrust, which serves 1,350 acute care facilities and members in more than 15,000 locations. The new agreement will allow Tru-D SmartUVC’s automated disinfection robot to be purchased and utilized by hospitals in the HealthTrust members that are committed to taking their infection prevention efforts to the next level.
“Hospitals are increasingly recognizing the need for an advanced and integrated approach to improving patient outcomes on several levels,” said Chuck Dunn, president and chief executive officer of Tru-D Smart UVC LLC. “Antibiotic resistant bacteria and HAIs are a challenge that cost health care facilities billions of dollars every year. By integrating advanced technology that has been proven as a solution time and time again, hospitals are not only saving money, but they are also protecting patients and staff from acquiring potentially deadly illnesses.”
HealthTrust members include acute, ambulatory surgery centers, physician practices, long-term care facilities and alternate care sites. With an established reputation in acute care facilities across the United States, Tru-D SmartUVC is now expanding access to other health care providers and facilities in the industry through this contractual partnership.
Tru-D SmartUVC is a germ-eliminating UV disinfection robot used to kill germs and pathogens that plague health care environments. It is the only device on the market with Sensor360™ technology that measures UVC dose and calculates the proper time needed to thoroughly deliver a measured dose of UV light from a single placement in the room. There are hundreds of Tru-D’s protecting health care environments across the globe.
Third Party comparisons to pulsed xenon methods conclude Tru-D SmartUVC is six times more effective eliminating Clostridium difficile (C. diff) spores, seven times more effective removing vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), and twice as effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). HealthTrust’s intensive due diligence process concluded that Tru-D SmartUVC robot’s validated capability to completely disinfect a room without requiring hospital staff to guess where the robot should be placed, how many cycles to run and for how long, makes Tru-D the best technology choice in the automated UV Disinfection technology space.
