Avadim Technologies Contracts with Group Purchasing Advantage to Provide Theraworx® Patented Technology and Protocols to its Members

Asheville, NC (June 1, 2017) – Avadim Technologies Inc. (“Avadim”), the Bionome Therapies™ life sciences company, today announced that it has contracted with Group Purchasing Advantage (“GPA”), a leading Group Purchasing Organization (“GPO”) based in Charleston, Arkansas, whose membership includes more than 400 dedicated healthcare clients in the mid-South area. GPA will provide Avadim’s patented and innovative technology, Theraworx® that safely supports the immune health of the skin’s microbiome, which is the first line of defense against healthcare-acquired conditions.

GPA is known for its strong commitment to its clients, and specializes in assisting long-term care and other healthcare facilities in controlling supply costs, planning, budget, logistics, and in staying up to date on innovative products, which can help deliver superior patient care. The company’s genesis was as part of the Arkansas Healthcare Association (“AHCA”), but in 1987 the AHCA spun GPA out as a separate company, and for 30 years they have been a key element of healthcare in the Arkansas market, as well as now in several surrounding states.

“GPA’s strong commitment to the long-term care market, coupled with its extremely strong regional presence and excellent customer service reputation, make this relationship a potential significant partnership in what is rapidly emerging as our strongest growth market,” said Steve Woody, Chairman and CEO of Avadim Technologies. “We look forward to establishing a strong working partnership with GPA’s client group, and are confident that together we can help provide positive clinical outcomes to GPA client facilities, as well as, overall cost savings on skin hygiene.”

“Avadim Technologies has introduced a product line, Theraworx®, that represents innovative new technology in healthcare skin hygiene, and our clients have told us that this can be a beneficial product contract for them,” said Wes Robertson, Founder and President of Group Purchasing Advantage. “We look forward to creating a strong working relationship with Avadim, and to providing their innovative technology to our clients.”
