Hu Mou-mou, the person in charge of the Department concerned, immediately suspended his post to cooperate with the investigation, suspended his outpatient service and other work, and then handled accordingly according to the further investigation.

Hu Mou, the head of the Department concerned, was the director of the Department of Traditional Rehabilitation for the Elderly in Jiangsu Provincial People's Hospital. He repeatedly recommended "sky-priced insoles" to patients and collected kickbacks from them.

In recent years, the industry of rehabilitation assistive devices has developed rapidly. In October 2016, the State Council issued a number of proposals to speed up the development of rehabilitation aids industry, which put forward the development goal: by 2020, the scale of rehabilitation aids industry will exceed 700 billion yuan.

However, development is accompanied by chaos. According to people familiar with the situation, even in public hospitals, "department contracting system" still exists, "especially in rehabilitation treatment centers and other departments, rehabilitation aids are in great demand, and"contracting performance"is often very good.

Shi Lichen, founder of Beijing Dingchen Management Consulting Co., Ltd., believes that rehabilitation aids, as a kind of medical device, need to go through a series of examination and approval in public hospitals, and then be purchased by the hospital according to the actual needs. "It is a clear violation of the rules and regulations to enter the hospital for the high-priced insoles. The hospital must strengthen the control and supervision."
