The University awarded a contract for neurostimulation implants.
Medtronic offers implants used in neurostimulation for the management of pain. The implantable neurostimulation and pain control pump system are used in patients to aid in the management of chronic intractable pain of the trunk or limbs and spasticity and tremors such as chronic pain and Parkinsonian tremors.
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)) Medtronic USA, Incorporated implants have to do with direct patient care and without the Medtronic implants, the University of Illinois Hospital would not be able to offer pain management procedures that in turn would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
