The policy is good! The country will fully support the development of third-party medical laboratories.
Medical Network September 13th, September 5, 2018, the National Health and Health Research Center for Health Development released a third-party medical laboratory evaluation and experience summary project report in Guangzhou. This meeting is relatively low-key, and may be a lot of inspection industry insiders. In particular, the people in the hospital's laboratory are not concerned. However, because the Health Development Research Center of the Health and Health Commission is a direct institution of the National Health and Health Commission, it is a think tank that provides technical advice to the National Health and Health Commission. The official background, its assessment of third-party medical laboratories will determine the attitude of the National Health and Health Commission to third-party medical laboratories to some extent. Looking at the full text of the report, we will find that the next National Health and Health Commission may fully support third parties. The development of medical laboratories.
First, third-party medical laboratories can save inspection costs
Compared with the hospital laboratory, the third-party medical laboratory has more inspection items and more specimens. The intensive operation of the laboratory can be obtained directly from the testing instruments and reagent manufacturers at a competitive price. , exempt from the middle proxy The business link has a great cost advantage. At the same time, relying on standardized human resource management can minimize the cost of human resources, and it has an unparalleled advantage compared with the extensive human resource management of the hospital.
Therefore, the third-party medical laboratory can effectively reduce the inspection cost. According to the statistics of the integrated service model of Qingdao 'medical insurance + medical examination' by the Health Development Research Center, through the centralized inspection of medical insurance, 2013-2017, only in the routine inspection project In the middle, the medical insurance expenditure has saved nearly 10 million yuan; in the Conghua mode, it can reduce the diagnostic cost of nearly 5 million for the masses every year.
Based on 2016, the National Health and Wellness Research Center for Health Development estimates that the cost of inspections by third-party medical inspection agencies in 2016-2020 will be 10.4 billion yuan, 13.7 billion yuan, 17.6 billion yuan, 22.1 billion yuan, 27.4 billion yuan. Assume that the amount of Medicare spending between 2016 and 2020 is growing at a rate of 3% per year, and it can be concluded that third-party medical tests can save nearly 1% of the cost of Medicare every year.
With the overall increase in the overall cost of medical insurance, third-party medical laboratories can save 1% of the cost of medical insurance every year. The National Health and Health Commission has no reason not to support its development.
Second, third-party medical laboratories actively participate in the mainstream
For the future development of the third medical laboratory, the report pointed out that third-party medical testing institutions should actively integrate into the construction of grading medical treatment and medical associations, and build a collaborative medical platform for regional inspection medical centers and regional clinical inspection centers, with a focus on county medical communities. As a useful supplement to the public medical service system, the unit will improve the ability of inspection and inspection at the grassroots level and promote the balance of medical and health resources. The report believes that new medical institutions such as third-party medical examinations can become a hub between medical and health care, medical care and prevention. Bridge. Pilot monitoring can be carried out first. Under the framework of the value-oriented strategic purchase of medical insurance, the medical expenses entrusted by the designated medical institutions will be included in the medical insurance payment.
Third-party medical laboratories have developed rapidly in recent years, but they have always been outside the mainstream, can not participate in public hospital-based medical associations, and can not enjoy medical insurance treatment. But this report clearly stated that third-party medical laboratories take the initiative. Incorporating grading diagnosis and treatment and medical union construction, and gradually incorporating medical insurance payment, this is undoubtedly a major positive for the development of third-party medical laboratories. Third-party medical laboratories are integrated into the mainstream, mainly reflected in the construction of regional inspection centers, with emphasis on county-level Regional inspection center, this point I also analyzed in the previous article, why focus on the county? Mainly to promote the sinking of high-quality medical testing resources, to provide strong support for graded diagnosis and treatment.
Third, the development model of third-party medical laboratories is more diversified
After the third-party medical laboratory is integrated into the mainstream, its development model is also significantly different from the past, mainly reflected in its participation in the construction of regional inspection centers:
1. Third-party laboratories and regional leading hospitals or professional organizations to build regional inspection centers: Jointly set up regional inspection centers with regional leading hospitals, which is a new mode of cooperation for third-party laboratories, and After the promulgation of the Guiding Opinions on the Construction and Development of Medical Complexes, this new model has developed rapidly, and domestic third parties such as Jinyu and Dean. enterprise In more than half a year, dozens of regional inspection centers have been contracted. On the one hand, third-party laboratories are used. standard , specialized, intensive laboratory management experience, reduce laboratory costs, reduce local government investment; on the other hand, the use of third-party laboratory specialized management and technology platform to quickly improve the inspection level of the grassroots area.
2. Third-party laboratories and regional faucets hospital Cooperation: Compared with the joint construction of the regional inspection center, this is a loosely cooperative way. The third-party laboratory signs a contract with the leading hospital in the region, and sends the projects that cannot be carried out in the regional hospital to the third-party laboratory to make full use of it. And optimize each other's resources to maximize the benefits of both parties.
3. Third-party laboratories directly join the medical association as a regional inspection center: This mode is different from the previous two modes. There is no co-construction problem, but the third-party laboratory is directly added to the medical association as a medical association. The regional inspection center. Compared with the previous three models, this model more completely frees the government from investing in the inspection center, not only does not need to invest in hardware construction, but also does not need to hire inspection staff, greatly reducing the government. Input.
4. Telemedicine collaboration mode: Use the original network of third-party laboratories to establish a remote writing mode.
The overall evaluation of the report on third-party medical laboratories is: Third-party medical laboratories can not only improve the service capacity of primary medical institutions, but also promote the hierarchical medical treatment system, promote the balance of medical and health resources, and help establish a high-quality and efficient medical and health service system.
Perhaps, the spring of third-party medical laboratories is coming.
