Aug 27, 2013

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – CareFusion Corp. (NYSE: CFN), a leading global medical technology company, today announced it has simplified the ordering process for its line of surgical products through an interactive e-catalog portal that creates an easy and intuitive way to order products individually or as full, procedure-specific trays.

The new ordering system includes more than 12,000 different products that are easily searched and sorted based on the product name or the type of specialty in which they are used. Modeled from leading online retailers, the CareFusion surgical e-catalog enhances the customer experience by simplifying the ordering process and saving time.

“We conducted extensive research on customer needs and designed our new e-catalog to be a best-in-class online experience,” said Andreas Lex, vice president and general manager of V. Mueller® and Snowden-Pencer® surgical instruments for CareFusion. “The ease to find products, build customized trays and save previous orders will simplify the experience and save valuable administrative time for our customers.”

The new ordering system features pre-built, recommended trays for more than 25 common procedures from nine different specialty areas including Cardiovascular, Ear Nose and Throat, General and Micro Surgery, Laparoscopic Surgery, Neurology and Spine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmic, Oral Surgery and Orthopedic. Tray recommendations are compiled based on the Pocket Guide to the Operating Room. These pre-built trays can be ordered with the click of a button, or customized for facility or provider preferences. Once built, trays can be saved under a user’s profile within the system, making re-ordering much more efficient.

The e-catalog is available to any health care provider at http://catalog.carefusion.com/vmueller.
