Cenmed worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to organize a network of suppliers to provide smallpox testing ancillary kits and assemble them in environmentally controlled facilities. To achieve this, we created and managed a seamless collective of integrated independent companies to assemble the smallpox diagnostic test ancillary components in a resealable container while ensuring GMP certification compliance.
Cenmed created collection kit uniformity among NYC Health+Hospitals’ 11 acute care hospitals, five nursing homes, six diagnostic and treatment centers, and 70+ clinics. We expanded specimen collection device options, developed standardized collection kits, created clinician user guides, consolidated purchasing operations, and achieved cost savings via volume.
Cenmed minimized the level of effort required by clinicians to collect multiple specimens at Westchester Medical Center. We developed a cost-effective solution without reengineering an entirely new kit. Instead, we added an additional collection component to an existing evacuated closed system.
