On 23 May 2016, the French Hospital Purchasing Group (Resah) announced that it has signed a new contract with Medsquare for the patient dose management solution Radiation Dose Monitor « RDM ». By winning this public tender − titled “Dose management software like DACS*” − Medsquare can provide any health institution affiliated with Resah with an effective solution that meets the particular requirements of European Directive 2013/59/Euratom.
Following an initial contract with Medsquare over the period 2014-16 (Resah-IDF), this new contract will give all hospital members of Resah − throughout France − the opportunity to acquire the RDM solution for their facility.
For Dominique Gabriel, CEO of Medsquare, this new contract is a great success for the company:
«Resah has again affirmed its confidence in Medsquare’s RDM solution by awarding its contract through a public tender. Since winning the first tender in 2013, we have been facing an increasing number of competitors − but this second win confirms Medsquare’s leading position in the DACS market. RDM is still the solution that best meets the needs of healthcare professionals today.»
RDM: a unique solution confirmed
In addition to Resah, the hospital purchasing groups AGEPS – AP-HP (Paris’ hospitals) and UniHA also selected RDM for their facilities. RDM is now deployed in a number of hospitals and university hospitals affiliated with these two hospital purchasing groups:
• AP-HP (Paris’ hospitals): Beaujon, Bichat, HEGP, Lariboisière, Necker, Robert Debré, Salpêtrière, etc.
• UniHA :
– Hopitals of Annecy, Carcassonne and Sainte-Anne
– University Hospitals of Grenoble, Nantes, Nice, Reims, etc.
Florent Jault, product specialist: « RDM is a constantly evolving solution, suitable for everyone responsible for the dose cycle. In line with the European Directives, the solution has become an essential tool for quality radiological care. »
With this new contract, Resah is opening new perspectives for Medsquare. In the coming weeks, Resah will organize future actions with Medsquare to make this contract a real success.
