Z-Medica Signs HealthTrust Agreement
Date:1/6/2014

WALLINGFORD, Conn., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Z-Medica, a leading developer and marketer of hemostatic agents, announced it has signed an agreement with HealthTrust, a group purchasing and total cost management solutions company,  to provide its healthcare member facilities access to QuikClot® products under a vascular closure patch category, effective January 1, 2014.

"Controlling bleeding in a hospital setting is essential for minimizing the length of procedures, reducing the risk of complications, reducing the cost to patients and medical facilities and improving overall patient outcomes," said Jack McCarthy, vice president of U.S. healthcare sales at Z-Medica. "We are very pleased to be working with the experienced HealthTrust team in this important effort to bring QuikClot products to more healthcare providers and patients who can benefit from them." 

QuikClot products are impregnated with a mineral called kaolin that has been clinically shown to accelerate the body's natural coagulation cascade, helping healthcare professionals, first responders, law enforcement officers, consumers and adventure and outdoor sports enthusiasts rapidly control bleeding. Kaolin is a naturally-occurring, inorganic mineral that does not contain any botanicals, biological material or shellfish products and does not cause any exothermic reaction or vascular complications. QuikClot products are credited with helping thousands of people survive traumatic blood loss every year.
