Avadim Technologies shares Theraworx Protect long-term care update

January 2, 2018

In April of 2016, Avadim Technologies launched a fully dedicated Long Term Care  team of 10 sales people  to focus on nursing homes, rehab centers and Long Term Acute Care Centers (LTACS).  To date, they have made significant progress in the top 25 nursing home and rehab centers, ranked by number of locations.  Their initial strategy was to position Theraworx for high acuity, high risk patients to substantiate Theraworx efficacy and then expand usage throughout the national chains.   They are now in a position to leverage early adoption and rapidly expand usage and revenue in the Post-Acute Care Markets. They expect to see significant growth in their per-site purchases in 2018 now that LTC facilities have transitioned to adhere to new regulations, which dampened purchases in the second half of 2017.  In addition, they expect the number one and two largest LTC systems in the country to send them their initial purchase orders in January, 2018.
Avadim’s product is currently in over 400 Long Term Facilities and with the new accounts listed below, they anticipate growing to over 1,000 facilities in 2018.
