Attis Industries Secures Commitments from Long Term Care Partners Covering 27 Facilities
Sophisticated Diagnostic Testing Has Commenced and Should Reach More Than 3,500 Beds
MILTON, GA, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attis Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATIS) (the “Company” or “Attis”), an integrated technology and innovations holding company, today announced commitments from three separate corporations to provide molecular pathogen testing in their long term care facilities. The testing is expected to occur on a monthly basis in these facilities and yield recurring revenue for Attis.
The corporations that have agreed to partner with Attis Healthcare, a division of Attis, collectively operate approximately 27 facilities with combined beds in those facilities of approximately 3,500. Testing has already begun in several of the facilities and Attis expects to expand into the other facilities in the coming months. Molecular pathogen testing offers health care providers specialized, detailed information on infections and their causes, as well as targeted information on the appropriate antibiotic treatment for each infection. The testing allows health care providers to provide better quality care while adhering to federal guidelines for the prescription of antibiotics. Because the test results are provided within 12 to 24 hours of receipt of the swab, health care providers get this detailed, targeted information much more rapidly than the traditional method of culture testing.
Attis Industries Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Cosman, commented, “Molecular pathogen testing improves the quality of medical care provided by health care providers and enables patients to receive appropriate treatment in a quicker, more efficient manner. We believe this testing will become the standard of care. Through this commitment from our partner corporations, Attis will be able to offer this testing to a broader base of patients, improving patient outcomes and quality of life on a significant scale. We fully expect to continue to gain commitments from other long term care facilities across the country, and because this testing can occur on a monthly basis in these facilities, these commitments should yield recurring revenue for Attis.”
