Novation Awards Wristband Contract to LaserBand
ST. LOUIS, Oct 02, 2008 / -- DiversityBusiness.com /- LaserBand, LLC (LASERBAND), the leading global manufacturer of patient identification wristbands, recently signed a three year contract with Novation, the health care industry's largest group purchasing organization (GPO), to provide 2,500 hospitals and other health care organizations with the latest patient identification wristbands and chart labels that improve patient safety, increase workflow productivity, and contain costs.

Effective May 1, 2008, Novation's contracted facilities will have access to all LaserBand products, including the complete line of Original LaserBand(R) and LaserBand2(R) adult and pediatric bands and LaserBand's newest wristband lines -- the Family Band(TM) (a comfortable and long-lasting identification option for babies and their parents) and FusionBand(R) (the first and only self-laminating, direct thermal patient wristband on the market). The comprehensive product selection enables participating facilities to leverage existing print methods, from laser- to thermal-printed, handwritten to embossed.

"This is an exciting time for all involved, as our business continues to expand not only in size but in product availability," says Rick Feiner, Vice President of Business Development. "While we are a world-wide corporation, we still qualify as a Diversity vendor, which helps Novation's Supplier Diversity Program fulfill unique contract initiatives."

All of LaserBand's wristbands, both laser- and thermal-printed, feature LaserBand's patented self-laminating technology which protects the integrity of a patient's information at the point of care. LaserBand products also include unique options such as extenders (which expand a band to fit a wide range of sizes, including bariatric patients), tamper evident tabs (which provide additional security to the band), and ComfyCuffs(R) (a padded cuff that is hypoallergenic and protected with Sanitized(R) antimicrobial treatment for infection control). LaserBand's products combine bar-coding, color-coding options, and innovative designs to ensure maximum patient comfort, adjustability, scanning, durability, and security.
