The University awarded a contract for mandibular osteotomy implants & ancillaries.
Immersive Touch offers implants and ancillaries for mandibular osteotomy procedures that is a surgical procedure that's undertaken through an incision made at the back of the patients mouth in the gum by the molar teeth to gain access to the jaw. The implant is then moved into its new position that has been predetermined during surgical planning with the aid of models of your teeth.
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)) Immersive Touch implants and ancillaries have to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies the Hospital would not be able to offer patients mandibular osteotomy procedures and care that would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
