Published: Apr 02, 2018
BOSTON, April 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Visiomed Group (FR0011067669 - ALVMG), a company specializing in next-generation medical electronics, today announced the signing of a partnership agreement between American subsidiary BewellConnect® and Janz Corporation. The agreement will open the orders and distribution market to United States health facilities who will benefit from BewellConnect's suite of connected health devices and services.
Founded in 1999, Janz Corporation is a distributor of medical devices, equipment and health services for the US Government. Janz Corporation has a very broad offering that extends across all levels of care, from first aid to hospital equipment and from portable defibrillators to large, sophisticated imaging systems. Janz Corporation is known for bringing the latest medical and diagnostic technologies to government organizations.
Janz Corporation has the status of a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), which permits set-aside contracting access to the US Government. Janz Corporation's customers include, Federal Agencies, the DoD, the VA, NATO member countries, State Governments and commercial hospitals, clinics and institutions.
Janz Corporation has chosen to distribute a limited number of brands (fewer than 30 to date), all leaders in their field of expertise.
Olivier Hua, CEO of BewellConnect Corp., says, "We are proud of this distribution agreement with Janz Corporation in the United States. It opens doors to important government markets that only the best can access. This new brand of confidence for the innovative technologies developed by our company is again proof that the strategy we have built seduces the most demanding players."
Beyond the connected health devices of the BewellConnect® range (MyThermo®, MyTensio®, MyOxy®, MyScale®, MyGluco® and MyCoach®), both partners have chosen to promote VisioCheck®, the first mobile telemedicine station, given its disruptive nature and its powerful commercial potential, when the product will have received its clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
VisioCheck® integrates five different medical devices necessary for remote monitoring of patient vitals anywhere and in any circumstance. VisioCheck® weighs less than 300 grams and measures patient blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, oximeter level and blood glucose level. These measures can prove invaluable in the field of operations of the armed forces.
"Being a US Army Veteran-owned company and a medical device distributor, we offer our partners privileged access to US government orders, from the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs to federal agencies all over the country," said Rick Finsterbusch, CEO of Janz Corporation. "We recognize BewellConnect's strong innovation capability and are very pleased to be able to bring its breakthrough solutions in the field of connected health to our customers. In particular, we are looking forward to adding VisioCheck® to our catalog, as we see tremendous potential for this all-in-one device that has no equivalent in the market, " said Finsterbusch.
Much like the industry they are designed to streamline, digital health devices often remain siloed, cumbersome to use, and do not provide clear, actionable paths to better health. BewellConnect has set out to solve these challenges - not through the manufacturing of devices, but with a suite of healthcare services of which FDA-approved products are a component. The connected health devices are used to monitor patient progress and send the information back to the physician, resulting in patients who are more educated and empowered to take an active role in their healthcare. Additionally, the data-sharing helps to alleviate some of the strain on PCPs who are often overloaded and unable to gather or sort simple data from their patients. This allows both patients and physicians to monitor the data in one place, and work together to monitor and improve patient health. For more information, go to www.bewell-connect.us.
