Five oblasts, including Odesa, entered the state pilot project on development of emergency medical care in 2019. For these changes, an additional UAH 1 billion will be put into the state budget. This was discussed today during the all-Ukrainian meeting on health care reform chaired by Prime Minister Volodymyr Groisman, which was held in Vinnytsia.

In particular, the plan for the transformation of the medical system for 2019 was presented. Priority is the development of emergency and family medicine. Doctors, heads of medical institutions of the region and Odessa regional state administration joined the discussion.

"Very motivating meeting - we received concrete proposals for the development of medical services. Already, the reform gives the first results. More than one million residents of the Odessa region have chosen a family doctor and this process continues. All these changes stimulate medical workers to work more effectively in the framework of medical reform ", - said the deputy chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Vitaliy Svichinsky.

Currently, more than 1,100 family doctors, pediatricians and physicians from the Odessa region have registered with the Electronic Health system. "They are involved in the implementation of the agreement with the National Health Service of Ukraine (NSAID). This directly enhances the professional capabilities and financial support of medical workers ", - added Olena Teryaeva, Director of the Department of Health of the Odessa Regional State Administration.

Recall that a pilot emergency medicine project for 2019 is planned to be used to purchase sanitary transport, train instructors, and increase salaries for physicians who have undergone training. Improving the quality of medical services in Odesa Oblast is one of the priorities of the implementation of the Strategic Action Plan of the Head of the Odessa Regional State Administration Maxim Stepanov "Intelligent Region" for 2017-2019.
