The University awarded a contract for catheter ablation supplies.
Boston Scientific supplies are used in catheter ablation to correct heart arrhythmia. Heart arrhythmia, also known as arrhythmia, dysrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, is a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular, too fast, or too slow.
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)) Boston Scientific Corporation disposable supplies have to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies the Hospital would not be able to offer treatment for heart arrhythmia. This will drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue for the Hospital.
