The import of medical equipment has increased substantially. The existing system defects restrict the development of domestic industry. It is learned from Shenzhen Customs that after the introduction of the national medical reform policy, the state has increased the investment in medical equipment and equipment and the domestic market demand is warming up. The medical equipment and instruments at Shenzhen Port this year. Imports are growing rapidly. According to statistics, in the first half of this year, the import of medical instruments and equipment from Shenzhen Port was US$749.23 million, an increase of 34.6% compared with the same period of last year. The industry believes that China's huge population base and rapid development of the economy make the domestic medical device market demand continue to grow with the continuous improvement of residents' life expectancy, the aging of the population and the public's expectation of quality of life and health. Since the introduction of the medical reform policy this year, the state has increased the construction of a social security system. The increase in investment in medical equipment and equipment manufacturing has led to a rapid expansion of domestic medical equipment market demand. On July 3, the Ministry of Health stated that by 2011, the state planned a total investment of about 100 billion yuan to improve the construction of grassroots medical and health service system, and improve the standard of medical equipment configuration in primary hospitals. The above factors have promoted the rapid growth of medical instruments and equipment imports at the Shenzhen Port in the first half of this year. The insiders pointed out that with the improvement of China's medical security system and the active promotion of the country's new medical reform policy, the domestic medical device market will continue to grow, which will bring better opportunities for the development of the industry. However, it is worth noting that the existing medical equipment system defects in China also restrict the development of the domestic medical equipment industry. On the one hand, the product structure is not reasonable, the degree of subdivision is low, and the traditional and primary products account for the majority. Except for some domestic medical equipment such as Gamma Knife, there is certain competition, and most other high-end products are still imported; Industrial R&D is mostly based on imitation, lacking independent innovation products, and the industry's competitiveness is weak. On the other hand, at present, large medical equipment must be applied for and obtained from the health department in order to enter the hospital in China. Otherwise, the hospital cannot purchase and use it for clinical use. Although the performance of some domestically produced equipment can meet the requirements, it is difficult to obtain the configuration certificate in actual operation, and it is impossible to enter the scope of domestic hospital procurement, resulting in a high degree of dependence on imported equipment, and a large part of the huge benefits brought by the medical reform policy are taken by foreign high-end products. Absorbed. Unreasonable barriers to entry have caused domestic medical equipment manufacturers to face severe pressures to survive. To this end, Shenzhen Customs recommended that doctors should be changed to take the opportunity to give policy support to the research and development of high-end products of domestic enterprises, improve the independent innovation capability of medical equipment enterprises, encourage enterprises to actively carry out industrial transformation and upgrading, and smoothly enter the market for domestic medical instruments and instruments. Hidden dangers and thresholds should guide hospitals to make priority purchases of domestic products and provide more space for the development of domestically produced equipment ..
