The new technique makes it possible to increase the level of diagnosis and treatment of many diseases, including cardiovascular and oncological ones.
The capital continues to implement a program for the procurement of modern medical equipment for city polyclinics and hospitals under life cycle contracts. It is calculated until 2023, however, purchases for some hospitals have already been fully completed.
“For 10 hospitals, the equipment has already been purchased 100 percent, partly delivered to these institutions and is used by doctors in their daily work. The new technology makes it possible to raise the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases, including cardiovascular and oncological ones, to a qualitatively new level. At the same time, all angiographs, magnetic resonance tomographs, mammographs, ultrasound machines, densitometers, as well as endoscopic equipment of various types have already been purchased from the equipment planned for the purchase, ”the press service of the Moscow social development complex said.
The procurement of equipment for hospitals No. 31, 40, 51, GKB named after I.V. Davydovsky, Research Clinical Institute of Otorhinolaryngology named after L.I. Sverzhevsky and other institutions. More than 90 percent of the planned equipment has been purchased for another 29 hospitals, and over 80 percent for another 11. More than half of the purchased equipment has already been delivered to hospitals.
Many samples of purchased medical equipment are unique in their category and provide doctors with qualitatively new opportunities for diagnosis and treatment. In particular, they have a higher degree of visualization, in some cases they can be integrated with each other, and allow the use of 3D visualization with 4K resolution. The new equipment can be immediately connected to the Unified Radiological Information Service of the Unified Medical Information and Analytical System (ERIS EMIAS), where the results of radiation studies are processed using artificial intelligence technologies. This significantly reduces the risk of errors in the diagnosis and shortens the diagnostic time.
In total, the program provides for the purchase of more than 5.5 thousand units of various equipment. To date, 2,984 ultrasound machines, 258 computer and magnetic resonance tomographs, 235 mammographs, 422 x-ray machines of various types, 830 endoscopic systems and other equipment have been purchased for city hospitals and clinics.
The purchase of equipment under life cycle contracts can significantly increase the availability and quality of medical (including high-tech) care for patients, since it eliminates the likelihood of equipment downtime due to repair or maintenance. In addition, thanks to this contract scheme, it is possible to achieve an optimal price-quality ratio, both for the equipment itself and its maintenance.
