The University awarded a contract for supplies for Carto III 3-D mapping system.
Biosense Webster, Incorporated offers supplies for the Carto 3 System which is a 3-D mapping system with the integration, scalability and insight to help electrophysiologist make optimal treatment decisions. Carto 3 3-D Mapping System is used with specialized catherters in Electrohysiology (EP) Lab for treating patients effectively and safely while mapping and ablating complex arrythmias during a procedure.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Biosense Webster, Incorporated supplies have to do with direct patient care. Without access to these specific supplies, the Hospital would not be able to offer surgical procedures and care that in turn would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
