Abstract. High-tech medical equipment for telemedicine, nuclear medicine, etc. is needed for patients’ treatment in modern medical institutions. In order to provide medical institutions with such equipment, it is necessary to determine the adequacy of the medical equipment already available in hospitals and/or the need for the purchase of more modern and efficient medical equipment.  We should also remember that the medical institutions are responsible for providing medical services that meet the standards of economy and efficiency, free of fraud, misuse, and so on. The concept of value-based healthcare institutions demonstrates improved quality of care through rigorous quality assurance measures. But in some cases, the management of these institutions falls short of their remarkable potential because of the lack of information, the lack of incentives, and the fragmented nature of the organization between management and practitioners. This chapter provides scientific view for determining appropriateness and necessity of high-tech medical equipment by integrating service data, and a logical scheme for evaluating High-tech medical equipment alternatives.
