In this March Madness edition, NuVasive Clinical Services (NCS) provides insight on IOM practices and patient billing, gives you the scoop on upcoming tools for the OR, and introduces NuVasive’s new Chief Executive Officer.
Pulse is the first spine technology platform to integrate independent technologies for a more effective and meaningful delivery of information, including advancements to IOM. The platform’s built-in wireless functionality allows everyone in the OR to access the technologies independently. This means the spine surgeon, neurophysiologist, C-arm tech, and others can work simultaneously, while still communicating relevant information. Meet the innovators and learn more about the technology launching in July.
On the heels of last quarter’s Premier announcement, NCS has executed a new three-year agreement with one of the nation’s largest GPOs, HealthTrust Purchasing Group, which will provide future cost savings to their members effective April 1.

Nothing but Net: NP Spotlight
Neurophysiologist, Huntington, West Virginia
“The best part of my job is being able to provide an extra level of comfort to patients and families. It is rewarding to be able to assist surgeons in helping prevent a less than favorable outcome. I am surrounded by other hardworking NPs, and the West Virginia team is one I feel fortunate to be a part of.“
