Some of the equipment has already entered medical institutions, which received the first patients after major repairs.
In 38 polyclinics of the capital, medical equipment will be updated in accordance with new Moscow standard… 105 ultrasound devices and 65 units of diagnostic equipment were purchased for medical institutions under life cycle contracts: 17 mammographs, 31 X-ray diagnostic devices, 17 X-ray devices of the “U-arc” type. 28 ultrasound machines and 12 units of diagnostic equipment have already been delivered to polyclinics, where overhaul has been completed.
The new equipment meets all modern requirements and will become part of a single digital platform for the Moscow healthcare. Under the terms of the contract, the supplier guarantees the operability of the equipment throughout the entire life cycle, and also assumes its maintenance throughout the entire life cycle. In cases where medical equipment purchased under a life cycle contract requires service or repair, the customer pays nothing for the downtime.
Moscow Department of Health updates medical equipment under life cycle contracts since December 2019. The purchased equipment is replacing equipment that has exhausted its technological resource. The long-term nature of the contracts allows you to get the best price / quality ratio of equipment and the cost of its maintenance. Moscow became one of the first regions of the country to start using the procurement of medical equipment under life cycle contracts.
Since 2011, about 100 city, federal and private healthcare facilities have been built in Moscow. Among them, 45 polyclinics, of which 18 were built at the expense of the Moscow Targeted Investment Program, another 27 were built – at federal and private funds.
The Targeted Investment Program for 2021–2023 plans to build 65 healthcare facilities. Among them, in particular, 31 polyclinics, 21 hospital buildings, four substations of emergency medical care.
According to the new Moscow standard, modern medical equipment for diagnostics and treatment is being installed in polyclinics after major repairs. For patients in the halls, waiting areas with water coolers and vending machines are equipped, and convenient information desks appear instead of the reception. The new navigation is intuitive, which allows visitors to easily find the desired office. Reception is carried out by doctors of the most demanded specialties.
In total, 137 polyclinics are planned to be renovated according to the new Moscow standard by 2024.
