February 7, 2017 12:15 AM EST

TEMPE, ARIZ.-- Insight (NASDAQ:NSIT), a leading provider of Intelligent Technology Solutions™ to organizations of all sizes, announced it has received the Innovative Technology designation for the HP Elite X3 device from Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the country.

The Innovative Technology designation was given to Insight based on reviews of the HP Elite X3 device by hospital experts who attended Vizient's recent Innovative Technology Exchange. The event provided medical technology suppliers, such as Insight, the opportunity to demonstrate their products and gain direct feedback from 1,300 onsite clinical experts and health care providers. Feedback was focused on the impact products may have on improving clinical care, safety, or benefits to an organization's care and business model.

"Thanks to our relationship with Vizient, Insight can offer advanced and innovative technology solutions to a vast healthcare network," said Dave Cristal, vice president Insight Public Sector. "Transformative technologies, like the HP Elite X3, allow the Insight team to help our key Healthcare partners improve the patient experience."

"Due to the number of products and services being released and marketed as 'innovative', member hospitals truly value the peer-review system in place at Vizient to help them identify products worth further evaluation at their own facilities," said Debbie Archer, director of procurement and leader of Vizient's Innovative Technology program for suppliers. "After a review of the HP Elite X3 Vizient's member council agreed this solution offers unique and incremental benefit over other products available on the market today, and recommended it for an Innovative Technology designation."

"As our 2016 HP Personal Systems Reseller of the Year for the US Channel, I am thrilled to congratulate Insight on their Innovative Technology designation," said Stephanie Dismore, Vice President & General Manager, Americas Channels at HP. "Through partnerships like these, HP is proud to help bring technology to the forefront of the hospital care experience and to ultimately drive better patient outcomes."

The HP Elite X3 combines PC power and productivity with smartphone capabilities as a one-stop-shop device. This allows for seamless access of critical applications for users without having to switch devices. Additionally, HP Elite X3 can process data on-site into useful information, and therefore, serve as a mobile diagnostic lab for on-the-go healthcare professionals who need access to personalized medical information.
