Efficient June 1, 2022the new contract allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of Premier pre-negotiated pricing and special terms for MolecuLight’s point-of-care wound imaging devices under the Skin Integrity product category.
MolecuLight imaging devices are the only FDA cleared devices that allow clinicians to visualize the presence, location and load of bacteria (>104 CFU/g) in wounds in real time. Published results from a recent clinical trial of 350 patients and 14 sites showed that the clinical standard of care alone detected 15% of wounds with high bacterial load, while the addition of the MolecuLight device led to an improvement 400% in the detection of these wounds2. Presence of high bacterial loads are known to impede wound healing1 and removal of bioburden is key to improving wound outcomes1. The I:X and DX provide invaluable bacterial information at the point of care to inform clinical decision making and enable targeted wound treatments. In a recent study, the incorporation of bacterial information from MolecuLight imaging resulted in a 23% increase in wound healing rates, while decreasing the use of antimicrobials and antibiotics3. MolecuLight devices also perform accurate digital wound measurement, enabling consistent wound monitoring and documentation.
“We are delighted to have entered into a supply agreement with Premiere and honored that our MolecuLight point-of-care devices have received the award. Technological breakthrough designation“, says Anil Amlani, CEO of MolecuLight. “Thanks to the I:X and DX, we hope to enable significant cost savings and improved clinical outcomes. Premier’s vast membership base can now easily access MolecuLight wound imaging devices and see the clinical benefits in their wound care practices. »
In addition to clinical benefits, MolecuLight procedures performed in United States may benefit from availability way of reimbursement including two CPT® codes for the doctor’s work to be performed”fluorescence imaging for bacterial presence, location and load » procedures and ease of payment for Hhospital Oambulatory Dapartment (HOPD) and Aambulatory Surgical VSWalk in (CSA) parameters via a Aambulatory Ppayment VSclassification (APC) assignment.
