“We are very excited and pleased to enter into agreement with UC San Diego Health for The DiskCover System,” said Scott Mader, AseptiScope co-founder and CEO. “It is especially rewarding to see that our premiere multi-facility health care system agreement is with a widely recognized and well-respected organization whose urgent care facilities were among the first to install The DiskCover System as part of our national beta test site initiative. We now look forward to working with the clinical teams across UC San Diego Health to ensure that every stethoscope exam is a safe and clean patient experience,” Mr. Mader added.
