With integrated data and analytics, collaboratives, supply chain solutions, and advisory and other services, Premier enables better care and outcomes at a lower cost.
“We are excited to have Premier select our microMend wound closure products for placement in their “new” Non-Invasive Skin Closure Device Category. We believe that Premier can provide an opportunity to help our new technology serve the members of all the Premier Acute and Non-Acute Care Facilities throughout the U.S.,” said Deon Miller, KitoTech’s Chief Commercial Officer.
Dr. Ronald Berenson, President and CEO of KitoTech, stated, “Similar to KitoTech, Premier is focused on improving the quality and lowering the costs of healthcare.

KitoTech’s first product, microMend, consists of an array of miniature staples (Microstaples) attached to an adhesive backing that combines the holding strength of a suture with the simplicity of applying a bandage. It is designed to provide medical personnel with a cost-effective, time saving and easy-to-use option for closing lacerations, skin tears, surgical incisions, and other wounds.
