HIGH PEAK MEDICAL SYSTEMS
High Peak Medical Systems is an Oregon LLC whose mission is to eliminate false-positive blood cultures caused by contamination of the sample during the blood collection process.
False-Positive Blood Cultures are a serious problem that causes unnecessary antibiotic treatment, increased length of hospital stays, and risks to secondary infection and HAC/HAIs for patients. False-Positive blood cultures cost U.S. hospitals over $5 billion annually. Bodily fluids removed via standard practice are susceptible to skin bacteria contamination, often causing “false positives” for blood cultures. The High Peak Diversion System is designed to eliminate contaminations, drive better patient outcomes and reduce medical treatment and liability costs.
