To Empower Providers to Better Manage Their Implant Costs and Revenue.

After decades of working with health plans, providers, surgical facilities, and patients across the country, Advantien’s co-founders knew there had to be a better way.

In 2011, they applied their commercial know-how in the implant supply industry and committed to optimizing the often fragmented relationships between manufacturers and ASC’s to improve the quality of care for patients and deliver the resulting savings and profits to the providers.
