This year, Premier's highly anticipated Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition will kick off on July 23 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, MD. As a pivotal event for our members, suppliers and partners, the conference promises a dynamic platform to engage with pioneering ideas, connect with industry leaders and explore cutting-edge innovations shaping the future of healthcare.

A standout moment of the conference is our prestigious Innovation Celebration, where we recognize some of our most innovative suppliers and honor their technological breakthroughs.

This year we will celebrate Abbott, Beckman Coulter, Inc., GE Healthcare, Kate Farms, Medtronic, Rpharmy LLC, Samsung NeuroLogica Corp, Stryker, Sunset Healthcare Solutions, and Terraloam LLC. These organizations have introduced groundbreaking solutions to help advance healthcare delivery and patient outcomes. Below are brief descriptions of their game-changing products.

Abbott: TBI

Abbott's Alinity i TBI is a groundbreaking biomarker combination that provides a semi-quantitative, objective measurement of GFAP and UCH-L1 in human plasma and serum, aiding in the evaluation of suspected mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). When used alongside other clinical information, a negative result can help physicians confidently rule out the need for a CT scan, potentially reducing unnecessary scans by up to 40 percent. This innovation not only reduces the burden of unnecessary imaging, but also enhances emergency department care by allowing faster patient discharge and improved efficiency.

Beckman Coulter, Inc.: Dxl 9000 Access Immunoassay Analyzer

Beckman Coulter's Dxl 9000 Access Immunoassay Analyzer sets a new standard in clinical diagnostics with its innovative technologies. This analyzer boasts the highest percentage of Six Sigma assays available, helping to ensure exceptional accuracy and reliability. Designed to meet CLIA 2024 regulations, it features industry-leading throughput, safeguarding against errors that could affect patient results and turnaround times. The system's heightened analytical sensitivity enables exploration into new disease diagnostics and expands clinical applications for existing assays. It represents a significant advancement in laboratory efficiency and diagnostic precision.

GE HealthCare: Caption Guidance™ on the Venue Family

GE HealthCare's Caption Guidance™ on the Venue Family is a cutting-edge, computer-assisted acquisition tool designed to enhance echocardiography imaging. Utilizing real-time AI technology, it guides users through the process of capturing anatomically correct 2D echocardiographic diagnostic views and orientations. This software simplifies the cardiac exam workflow, allowing even non-experts to automatically capture high-quality cardiac diagnostic images. Now available on GE HealthCare’s Venue Family and Vscan Air SL, Caption Guidance helps ensure precise and efficient cardiac imaging.

Kate Farms: Pediatric Blended Meals

Kate Farms Pediatric Blended Meals represent a pioneering innovation in pediatric nutrition, offering nutritionally complete blended meals made from organic, plant-based whole foods fortified with essential vitamins and minerals. Specifically designed for children aged one to 13, these meals support healthy growth and development and can be used for both tube and oral feeding. Available in three flavors to provide variety throughout the day, each meal is packaged in an innovative, recloseable single-serve pouch for convenient and mess-free use with tube feeding devices, whether at home or on-the-go. This solution not only helps ensure ease and convenience, but also allows parents and caregivers to share meal experiences with their loved ones.

Medtronic: Symplicity Spyral™ Renal Denervation System

Medtronic's Symplicity Spyral™ Renal Denervation System is a groundbreaking treatment for hypertension that enhances traditional care approaches. Using a simple, versatile single-catheter design, this system delivers safe and precise radiofrequency (RF) energy via a low-profile 4 Fr non-occlusive catheter. The Symplicity Spyral™ complements medications and lifestyle modifications by targeting renal nerves, which play a key role in blood pressure regulation. Over 4,000 patients have participated in the SPYRAL HTN Global Clinical program, demonstrating significant and sustained blood pressure reductions in real-world settings. This innovative approach helps patients achieve better blood pressure control when conventional methods alone are insufficient.

Samsung NeuroLogica Corp.: OmniTom Elite with PCD

Samsung NeuroLogica Corp.’s OmniTom Elite with PCD represents a cutting-edge mobile CT scanner equipped with photon-counting detector (PCD) technology. This innovation allows for immediate, high-quality imaging directly at the patient's bedside in settings like emergency rooms, ICUs and operating rooms, helping to facilitate rapid decision-making and treatment. The PCD technology enhances diagnostic confidence by differentiating materials based on photon absorption properties, enabling precise characterization of tissue types with close Hounsfield Units. Additionally, Virtual Non-Contrast (VNC) scans reduce radiation exposure by reconstructing non-contrasted images from contrasted scans, potentially minimizing the need for additional scans and overall radiation exposure.

Rpharmy LLC: Rhazdrugs

Rpharmy’s Rhazdrugs is a comprehensive hazardous drug safety tool that integrates critical handling and disposal information directly into electronic health records (EHR). Designed to meet USP <800>, OSHA, and NIOSH regulations, Rhazdrugs protects healthcare teams from hazardous drug exposure and helps avoid costly compliance issues. Seamlessly compatible with leading EHR systems, Rhazdrugs provides real-time updates and customizable safety protocols, enabling enhanced efficiency and worker safety.

Stryker: 1788 Camera Platform and CYTALUX

Stryker's 1788 Camera Platform is uniquely paired with CYTALUX, an FDA-approved fluorescent imaging agent designed to aid surgeons in identifying malignant and non-malignant lesions in adults with suspected or known lung cancer. CYTALUX is administered intravenously before surgery, circulating and binding to lung cancer cells, causing them to fluoresce under the 1788 Platform's visualization. This innovative combination enhances surgeons' real-time visualization of cancerous tissues during procedures, marking a significant advancement in surgical precision for lung cancer treatment.

Sunset Healthcare Solutions: Microflow Microdial Flowmeter

Sunset Healthcare Solutions' Microflow Microdial Flowmeter is an advanced device designed to deliver precise micro steps in oxygen flow, down to 0.01 LPM, primarily for infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). This condition, common in very low birth weight and pre-term infants, often requires prolonged oxygen therapy due to respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) or chronic lung disease (CLD). The Microflow Microdial Flowmeter enables these infants to receive necessary oxygen therapy at home, helping to reduce hospital stays, lower the cost of care and reunite families sooner. Its accurate, repeatable micro-step adjustments help ensure low flow rates achieve target saturation, allowing for safe weaning of oxygen flow and enhancing overall patient and family satisfaction.

TerraLoam LLC: BioGown®

The BioGown® is a compostable medical gown, designed to revolutionize healthcare sustainability. Made by TerraLoam LLC in Charlotte, NC, this non-surgical gown is crafted from a proprietary blend of starches and biodegradable polymers, eliminating the need for traditional plastic-based personal protective equipment (PPE). After use, the BioGown is collected, composted and transformed into nutrient-rich soil, supporting community health and reducing landfill waste. TerraLoam partners with hospital systems to implement this innovative solution, helping to ensure a seamless transition to sustainable protective apparel that protects both people and the planet.
