Cianna Medical Launches Comprehensive Support Program   

Do you want to implement a wire-free breast tumor localization program at your institution?  Now there’s help.  SCOUTCare is a comprehensive training, certification and communications program designed to support a facility’s mission of “moving beyond wires” through the adoption of SAVI SCOUT® Radar Breast Tumor Localization.

“We are committed to assisting healthcare professionals in implementing a wire-free localization program. SCOUTCare, along with the SCOUT system, is just another way we’re helping to ease the burden of breast cancer for women and their families,” said Jill Anderson, President and CEO of Cianna Medical. “With SCOUTCare, we are able to align breast care programs across the U.S. that are integrating their compassion for patients with our SCOUT technology. This program is one more way that we are helping our customers make breast cancer surgery easier for their patients.”

The program provides multi-modality training for radiologists, surgeons and allied health professionals, including customized implementation planning and certification of the clinical team and the facility. Once certified as a Wire-Free Provider, Cianna Medical will ensure that women without insurance have access to SCOUT with no added out of pocket cost. On a quarterly basis, Cianna Medical will replace reflectors used to care for uninsured women in an amount up to 5% of reflector purchases during the same time period.

The team at Cianna Medical continues to support the facility with quarterly meetings to improve or realize scheduling efficiencies, review clinical techniques and share best practices from hospitals across the country that have successfully implemented their wire-free program.

Over 200 hospitals across the country have adopted SCOUT, with many going “wire-free”. Becoming a Wire-Free Provider helps to reduce operating room costs, improve operational efficiency and reduce stress for women who are going through one of the most difficult times in their lives.

The SCOUT radar localization system has the first and only non-radioactive implant used in wire-free localization that can be implanted with no restrictions on the length of time the reflector can remain in the breast. You can try the SCOUT system live and learn about SCOUTCare at the 23rd Annual University of Florida Multidisciplinary Symposium on Breast Disease, Feb 15-18, Amelia Island, FL.
