It was purchased as part of life cycle contracts.
834 units of endoscopic and laparoscopic equipment of various types were purchased for specialized departments of city hospitals and polyclinics. This was reported by Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
“We continue the program of re-equipment of city medical facilities. As part of a unique procurement technology – life cycle contracts – we have purchased more than 800 pieces of expert-class equipment. The use of modern endoscopic technology in medicine is fundamentally new opportunities for both diagnostics and treatment of a wide variety of diseases, including oncological ones. Such technologies allow performing the most complex operations with minimal risk to the patient. This not only significantly improves the results of surgery, but also shortens the recovery time after surgery. We do our best to ensure that the latest medical advances are available to Muscovites. Now, each city hospital, without exception, will have endoscopic equipment, which will provide medical care at the highest level, ”she said.
The new laparoscopic equipment is very different from the previous generation. For example, 4K 3D imaging can now be used for complex operations. It is also useful in the treatment of diseases and injuries. New technologies allow the operation to be performed in three-dimensional image with significant magnification, so that less traumatic operations give better results.
Of the total number of purchased endoscopic equipment, 529 units belong to flexible endoscopy. This technique is used mainly for diagnostic studies in broncho-, gastro- and colonoscopy. More than 100 units were sent to city polyclinics, another 305 are intended for metropolitan hospitals.
All doctors who will work with the new equipment have passed the necessary training on the basis of the medical simulation center of the city clinical hospital named after S.P. Botkin. Skills in working with equipment of this class are a prerequisite for obtaining the status of “Moscow Doctor”.
Thanks to life cycle contracts, the equipment runs smoothly from the moment of installation and throughout the entire life cycle – the supplier takes care of this. According to Anastasia Rakova, it is possible not only to replace equipment that has exhausted its resource, but also to significantly expand the possibilities for the provision of high-tech medical care.
In addition, almost two thousand units of diagnostic equipment were also purchased under life cycle contracts. Among the purchased equipment 1360 ultrasound machines and 589 units of heavy diagnostic equipment: 216 mammographs, 199 X-ray diagnostic devices and 174 X-ray devices type “U-arc”.
