Novation, Toshiba ink CT deal
Toshiba America Medical Systems has signed a three-year agreement with healthcare supply contracting company Novation, which will now offer Toshiba CT scanners to provider members of VHA, University HealthSystem Consortium and Provista.

Novation, which is based in Irving, Texas, said it will offer Toshiba’s entire line of CT products to its healthcare providers, which contracted Novation to purchase $40 billion worth of medical supplies in 2010. Toshiba, whose headquarters are in Tustin, Calif., attributed the contract to its customer service offerings and efforts to lower radiation dose.

The three-year contract also holds two additional one-year extension options, Novation said.
