SCWorx Announces the Formation of Direct-Worx, a Wholly-Owned Subsidiary to Provide Health Care Providers Access to Critical Personal Protective Equipment to Aid in Their Fight Against the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19)
SCWorx’s Pipeline for Data Services Healthcare Clients is at an All-Time High
NEW YORK, March 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SCWorx (Nasdaq: WORX) today announces the formation of a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary, Direct-Worx, which was founded to provide health care providers with access to critical personal protective equipment (PPE) to help protect their well-being as they manage the influx of infected patients within the healthcare system. As normal supply chains have substantially broken down due to the coronavirus pandemic, SCWorx founded Direct-Worx based on a substantial volume of requests from its clients to assist with the acquisition of much-needed supplies necessary to protect their workers and for the safety of their patients.
Marc Schessel, CEO of SCWorx, who is also serving as CEO of the new Direct-Worx subsidiary, stated, “SCWorx is in the unique position to provide immediate assistance to our hospital and healthcare provider clients as we have all the necessary healthcare products in our large data array, a list of functional equivalent products and the connections to sourcing vendors for the core PPE our hospitals need, even as certain critical brand name products are sold out via normal sourcing routes. We are proud of our team’s ability to react immediately and provide added benefits to our clients at this time.”
Since the founding of Direct-Worx circa March 12, 2020, the new company is now working with more than 1,000 hospitals, state municipalities, and foreign governments in the sourcing and delivery of these incredibly hard to find items.
SCWorx’ traditional data management services have also continued to grow in this market, which has brought the necessity of improved critical hospital data and resources management to the forefront in order to help maintain the massive influx of utilization. The company is now in the process of finalizing several new long-term contracts with large hospital independent data networks.
“SCWorx is experiencing a strong influx of recurring revenue streams, which should drive improved results during these difficult times,” added Mr. Schessel.
