What does this mean for India customers?

We are committed to a smooth transition; there won't be any significant initial changes.

Here are a few things that won't change:

  • Your current Halyard Sales Manager will continue to provide the excellent service you have come to expect from us. Please continue to work with your current representative and use existing ordering processes.
  • You'll have access to the same quality HALYARD* products and clinical expertise.
  • Product code numbers will remain the same, with no product, packaging or name changes.

What you can expect in the future:

We are now in the first phase of the transition, which will occur in multiple phases through the end of 2019. During this first phase, O&M and Halyard will be handling business on shared systems and we will continue to work with you, our valued customers, as usual.

There are no changes to how you order and receive Halyard products. More information will be provided when our systems are ready to accommodate separate order processing and the development of new account/vendor numbers.
