The issue of leasing of hardware and software solutions in health care systems is considered in the context of the project RFMEFI577170254 “Intraoperative navigation system with support of augmented reality technology on the basis of virtual 3D models of organs obtained from CT diagnostics for minimally invasive operations”, since this the project involves the introduction of hardware and software systems in the practice of medical institutions for performing organ-preserving operations and segmental resections, which provide the applying of world-class technologies during surgical interventions. A lot of medical institutions in Russia have financial problems and are not able to purchase hardware and software systems using their own or credit funds. Thus leasing is a priority opportunity to use modern equipment in medical practice. The rationale for the research study is in the fact that limited funding is associated with the main problem of providing innovative equipment; therefore, leasing is regarded as the most economic finance instrument for purchasing medical equipment. The calculation of the efficiency of finance leasing by discounting method in comparison with other methods of financing the purchase of medical equipment was performed; the conclusion was performed on the optimality of leasing as a form of investing in the purchase of equipment and its advantages over crediting and acquisition at sole cost and expense.
