Black Diamond Video announced today that it has been awarded a 36-month group purchasing agreement with Premier, Inc., for its OR Integration Systems. Effective January 1, 2015, the new agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for OR Integration Systems.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer Premier members our leading integrated operating room technologies,” said Devon Bream, Vice President of Global Medical Sales and Marketing at Black Diamond Video. “Through this agreement, Black Diamond Video will be able to work closely with Premier member hospitals to support operative visualization, collaboration, and efficiency both within and beyond the OR.

“Additionally, BDV is the only supplier to design, develop, and manufacture in the US,” continued Bream. “Our design philosophy is to design cost out of the system, resulting in market-leading technologies at market- leading price points. I look forward to our providing these benefits to Premier institutions.”
