About Economics of Medical Equipment
The global market for a variety of medical engineering products and devices, with its particular appeal, offers great opportunities for researchers, manufacturers, sellers, distributors, and difficult choices for policymakers and decision makers in large countries.
A market in which, in order to succeed, staggering costs are spent on researching and developing new products and reducing production costs, so that the face of human life undergoes certain changes. Today, no country can claim to be self-sufficient in producing all the medical engineering devices and medical equipment it needs.
But the policy of many more developed countries has been to move towards goods with higher technology and quality, in order to achieve higher added value in this way.
The first concern of any country for its society is to ensure the health and safety of the people and to maintain public health in order to promote positive ideas.
Our dear country, Iran, with its potentials and as the third country to cultivate engineers in the world, has an excellent position for the development of this economy and can gain a special place in the world and move towards a sustainable economy, provided that the entire medical engineering community and the government work together for progress.
Health status of Iran
Iran, as the seventeenth largest economy in the world, is one of the most important countries in the world.
According to Article Twenty ninth of the Iranian Constitution, access to health services and medical care is considered a public right.
Iran, with a population of more than eighty-three million, spends nearly ninety billion dollars annually to maintain and improve public health. Also, the annual medical expenses in Iran are close to thirty billion dollars.
In the health sector, there has been extensive progress in recent years due to the improvement of health and treatment standards, the increase in the number of active personnel in this field in all categories, as well as the updating of equipment and medicines used.
The Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education, as the sole custodian of this issue, is responsible for formulating policies, creating the required infrastructure and launching the national health network of the country.
In addition to its other duties, the ministry develops standards and quality requirements for medicines and medical equipment required by the country, and oversees their production, import and export.
Health care and treatment costs in Iran strongly include subsidies and government assistance. These subsidies are particularly effective in the import and supply of medicine and medical equipment and have greatly reduced the final treatment costs of patients compared to global per capita. But health and treatment in Iran is not free for the public. To cover this cost gap, health insurance is available.
Currently, between eighty and eighty-five percent of the population of Iran are covered by health insurance.
The four main organizations providing health insurance services in Iran include the Social Security Insurance Organization, the Health Insurance Service, the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee, and the Armed Forces Medical Insurance.
In addition to these four organizations that have the main share in this sector, other organizations and companies also operate in this sector. Among these organizations, we can mention the specialized charities such as Mahak foundation, which supports children with cancer.
