"Third-party development of medical tests will become the new health reform to enhance the level of service hospitals, clinics and hospitals a major thrust of operational capacity." May 27, the largest independent medical laboratory - testing centers in Guangzhou Golden Mile and the U.S. ranked fourth overall Cleveland Medical Center signed a strategic partnership agreement meeting, domestic and foreign experts on China's development in the case of independent laboratory evaluation.
For both sides in the partnership, Golden Mile, chairman Liang Yaoming test, said the high-end medical centers and foreign clinical testing, paper tissue remote pathology consultation, personnel training, introduction of new technology projects to start testing all-round cooperation can improve the domestic test the capacity of institutions and levels, and promote Chinese hospitals, especially the primary hospital for medical diagnostic services to a higher level, but also for hospital operating cost savings.
It is reported that the third-party testing laboratory has been gradually on the rise.
Promote higher quality health care
In fact, the balance of health care resources to achieve the new health care reform one of the goals to achieve this goal lies in improving the level of grassroots medical institutions. County-level hospitals as primary care leader in the health care system plays an important role in linking. In particular, as a national pilot reform, paper napkins the level of the hospital's medical services and enhance the operational efficiency of the entire key to the success of reform.
But the domestic county hospitals accounted for about 46% of the total number of hospitals in China, the pattern of distribution of medical resources, although the state has increased investment, lack of county-level medical equipment configuration, backward infrastructure is still difficult to solve the problem, county grade level of the hospital's existing medical technology and service capabilities is relatively backward, unable to meet the needs of patients, has seriously hindered the development of the hospital.
"Clinically, there are more than 70% of medical practices are based on medical testing and pathology results." Cleveland Medical Diagnostic Testing Center Pathology and Director of the Center Dr.Marchant rummage Professor at the meeting said.
Golden Mile Inspection chairman Liangyao Ming, told reporters that under current conditions, a sample of county hospitals and diagnostic testing outsourcing to a third party independent laboratory model, the hospital itself operate to reduce stress and enhance the role of medical diagnosis is obvious, third-party testing samples for the detection of small and medium sized hospitals and diagnostic services in the Western countries have acquired a very good application.
Reporters also learned that, as opposed to most of the county and the following hospitals, third-party laboratory testing equipment generally more complete and high-end, and the professional level is also higher, on the basis of this assurance from an independent medical laboratory tests quality. In addition, relative to the hospital's own testing, the cost of third-party testing and more affordable. First, the required third-party laboratory or reagent test strips and other supplies, purchasing directly from manufacturers, and hospital products you need to get through the part of agents; the second is to use more efficient. General hospitals, especially small and medium hospital routine test sample size required is not much, is not fixed, likely to cause various types of reagent waste; In addition, the test equipment is expensive, hospital laboratories and can not make full use of the third party Because it is multi-sample test, sample test items and to ensure that personnel and equipment can be able to maintain continuous operation, more easily spread the cost.
"Relying on these advantages, the promotion of third-party medical examination of the development of the county hospital will be a very good driver." Liangyao Ming said.
At the meeting, as well as experts pointed out that the reform of county hospitals in the country early on the promotion of third-party testing for the conservation of medical input to enhance the hospital's diagnosis and treatment, optimization of the hospital the way they operate, and so resolved to keep medical drugs will be very large benefits. "If you can a wide range of promotion, mutual recognition of test results after the hospital will also be further promotion."
It is understood that medical institutions in the country in 2010 total revenue of about 800 billion yuan, of which the hospital tested 10% of total revenues, reaching 80 billion yuan. The National Medical Laboratory outsourcing market, accounting for about 2% of hospital laboratory market, 15 billion yuan. However, the U.S. accounted for hospital laboratory medical test outsourcing ratio of around 30%, Japan, Korea and even up to 70% level; In addition, the foreign medical test items have more than 5000, while the top three hospitals can detect about 1000. Therefore, in accordance with the ratio calculation, the future Chinese market more than tens of billions of third-party testing is not difficult to achieve.
The experts at the meeting also said that on the one hand, the next state will implement the national focus of more than 2,000 county hospital support, state finance and institutional investment policies in this field will tilt, as the main services market, county-level hospital market the rapid rise of third-party testing to promote more opportunities; the other hand, the county hospital as a national public hospital reform the starting point, the county hospital's revenue structure will change, the hospital's cost control and efficiency demands more hospital higher and higher, while the test business outsourcing for county hospitals to ease a huge financial pressure to improve the diagnosis of medical services, a win-win way to achieve income generation.
