The University awarded a contract for mandibular osteotomy implants and ancillaries.
Immersive Touch offers implants and ancillaries for mandibular osteotomy procedures which is a surgical procedure that is 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. It is then moved into its new position, which 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 products have to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies the Hospital would not be able to offer patients certain surgical procedures and care that would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
