China lists high-value consumables for national management

China’s National Healthcare Commission (NHC) released notification of a first batch of high-value medical consumables that will be added to the national key management list​. See the table below for full details.

According to the notice, all local medical and healthcare bureaus are required to add varieties to the national list and draw up local lists, and guide medical institutions to come up with their own lists under their own jurisdictions.

The State Council released a "High-value medical consumables administration reform plan" on July 30 last year, as GBI reported. The plan proposes to strengthen the standardized management of high-value medical consumables, clarify the scope of governance, and focus on managing high-value medical consumables with relatively high unit prices.
