The law passed today lays the foundation for the first real health reform – Iryna Sysoyenko

The Verkhovna Rada adopted in the second reading a bill on the autonomization of medical institutions. As noted by Samopomich MP, Iryna Sysoyenko, this is a very important law for the entire healthcare system, which allows budgetary medical institutions of communal and state ownership to become non-profit enterprises.
So, according to the law, patients will be able to pay directly for the medical services obtained, instead of financing hospital beds and infrastructure, the way it is today. Also this bill provides administrative, financial and economic independence to the chief physicians in making decisions on the labor remuneration fund; that is, they are given the possibility to manage funds and financially encourage the best doctors.
“In addition, the law provides for the creation of supervisory boards that will monitor the economic activities of the chief physician so that there will be no abuses and violations, and the rights of patients will be protected, while the access to medical care will be ensure,” the MP emphasizes.
As a co-author of the law, Iryna Sysoyenko underscores that this is the first systemic bill that changes the principles of financing of the entire healthcare sector. In fact, this is the first law that initiates real health care reform.
