  • The contrast media product category awards include x-ray/CT, MRI, ultrasound, oral barium, and oral iodated contrast, according to Novation. GE's products will be purchased through Novation's private-label pharmacy, NovaPlus.

    The x-ray/CT agreement was awarded to NovaPlus/GE, while the MRI contrast agent pact was given to Bracco and NovaPlus/GE. The ultrasound contracts were signed for Lantheus and NovaPlus/GE. Bracco will handle the oral barium supply, and the oral iodated agreement was awarded to NovaPlus/GE.

    Novation estimates that the agreements, which go into effect on July 1, could result in savings of as much as 29% for its member hospitals.
