In the Odessa region, the Mobile Polyclinic project was launched in the field of healthcare. It involves conducting diagnostics and providing skilled consultations to the rural population of the region with the help of so-called mobile clinics and, if necessary, telemedicine. This was announced by the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov during the presentation of the project.

"Let's be honest: unfortunately, there is a shortage of some specialists at the district level in the region. But this is not a reason to leave patients without help! Therefore, I initiated the launch of the Mobile Polyclinic project. The principle of operation is very simple: 2 auto-ambulances and 2 teams of specialists will ride across the area. Reviews will be held in all districts without exception. Absolutely free for people. The project is systematic, designed not for one year, just like all our initiatives. We will make these changes to the "Affordable Medicine" program for 2019-2020. And I hope that at the session of the regional council, the deputies will support them ", - said the head of the Odessa region Maxim Stepanov.

Therefore, the diagnosis will be carried out by cardiologists, ophthalmologists, including children, gynecologists, endocrinologists, and specialists in ultrasound diagnostics. In addition, mobile auto-ambulances are also equipped with a mobile mammography office. Referrals will be provided by family doctors to those patients who need diagnosis. Mobile clinics will visit different settlements on schedule.

The project is part of the reform of rural medicine, launched by President Petro Poroshenko in the Oknyansky district. He stressed that high-quality medical services should be equally accessible for the residents of the most remote village and for the cities.

Therefore, the project "Mobile Polyclinic" involves identifying the pathologies of the most common diseases at an early stage and further sending patients for examination and treatment in institutions of highly specialized medical care. During the first wave of reviews it is planned to inspect 20 thousand villagers in 75 settlements. In addition, the implementation of the project will increase the number of signed family doctors' declarations by 30% and inform the public about the "Available drugs" program.

Recall that the improvement of the quality of medical services remains one of the key priorities of the Strategic Action Plan of the Head of the Odessa Regional State Administration Maxim Stepanov "Intelligent Region" for 2017-2019.
