Velano Vascular

Blood draws are the most common invasive medical procedure by far, informing 70% of all clinical decisions. Medical device company Velano wants to make the process less painful. Its PIVO device allows needle-free blood draws in hospital settings by repurposing existing peripheral IV lines to pull blood out of the body without repeated needle sticks. After a series of pilot programs with multiple hospitals, in 2018 Velano did a 22-hospital rollout with Intermountain Healthcare and announced commercial agreements with University Hospitals of Cleveland, Griffin Hospital in Connecticut, and others.
