GEDSA Statement on Adoption of ENFit in California, and NeoMed’s Loyalty Program

Purple NeoConnect Transfer LidAs hospi­tals engage in the plan­ning process, they are looking at strong supplier part­ner­ships to ensure a successful Go-Live. The NeoMed Loyalty Program was designed in response to the GEDSA Position Statement to provide customers the strategic guid­ance to miti­gate their risk during this change. The essence of the program is to help customers navi­gate through the entire conver­sion process; not limited to a product specific tran­si­tion.

From GEDSA’s February state­ment:

“The conver­sion to the ENFit connector system impacts the entire enteral feeding system across all health care settings. To avoid disrup­tion of therapy, a careful and method­ical tran­si­tion to new connec­tors is recom­mended over the course of 2016 across the United States. Introduction of ENFit may vary depending on your supplier(s) timing. GEDSA encour­ages manu­fac­turers to intro­duce, and health­care facil­i­ties to adopt ENFit tip syringes and feeding tubes in the first half of 2016 to meet the California mandate. GEDSA and its supporting orga­ni­za­tions strongly suggest you work with your supplier repre­sen­ta­tive and distrib­utor network to under­stand their specific plans for conver­sion. In partic­ular, you must confirm that your syringe supplier has adequate supply of syringes before you convert to ENFit feeding tubes.”

Over 7000 hospi­tals, as well as thou­sands of home­care, alter­nate care and phar­macy facil­i­ties in the US, Canada and Europe expect reli­able ENFit suppliers dedi­cated to preserving and enhancing patient care through improved outcomes. NeoMed’s unique under­standing of the special­ized needs of the neonatal/pediatric patient and phar­macy allows us to provide a compre­hen­sive approach that meets both clin­ical and supply chain needs, while offering a cost compet­i­tive solu­tion. NeoMed prod­ucts mini­mize process disrup­tions by recog­nizing the need to preserve effi­cacy, safety and conti­nuity of proto­cols.
NeoMed offers existing customers “The NeoMed Loyalty Program” to help iden­tify hospital staff training needs, estab­lish and review process proto­cols, and ensure supply chain integrity before conver­sion. This program aligns customer supply needs and planned Go-Live dates with our NeoConnect family of ENFit prod­ucts. The NeoMed Guarantee assures supply of our NeoConnect prod­ucts but is limited to active customers with an accepted Go Live date.

NeoMed boasts:

• A complete phar­macy to NICU product line
• Guaranteed avail­ability for current customers
• Transition to NeoConnect based on the hospital’s time­line
• NeoMed track record of over 99% on-time product delivery rate
