  • 2019 № 10 Medication and medical product procurement regulations in a multidisciplinary healthcare institution

    Relevance. The process of organization of medication and medical product supply in conditions of the day hospital and inpatient care, that are part of the health insurance system, is assigned to the authority of the Ministry of Health of the constituent territory of the Russian Federation. However, the need to determine the quotas for medications and medical products from other sources of funding (federal budget, extrabudgetary activity) falls within the competence of a healthcare institution.
    Aim. To propose tools and regulations that allow to plan volume and range of medications and medical products for health¬care institutions that provide medical services, both through compulsory medical insurance and on an extrabudgetary basis.
    Materials and methods. The materials studied were the legislative and regulatory framework governing the medication supply of healthcare institutions of the Russian Federation and the Krasnoyarsk Territory; internal regulations of the FSFI FSRCC under the FMBA of Russia, a healthcare institution subordinate to the Federal Medical-Biological Agency. Mathe¬matical, analytical and descriptive methods were used in this work.
    Results and discussion. Particular problems in determination of the volume and range of medications for the institutions providing medical services on an off-budget basis are associated with the impossibility of accurate planning concerning medication type and volume. The FSRCC uses a retrospective analysis of requests for each type and number of medical services using a technical medical service worksheet. Application of the designed and approved procurement regulations allows to plan future expenses the most optimal way for the uninterrupted high-quality routine medical care provision not only at the expense of compulsory medical insurance but also as a part of extrabudgetary activity.
    Conclusions. The proposed algorithm for work with the regulations is recommended for the use in multidisciplinary health-care institutions in order to optimize procurement activity.

    The aim of the study is to optimize the processes leading to increasing patient satisfaction level, providing accessibility to medical services, increasing efficiency and eliminating existing temporary financial and other losses using the implementation of lean manufacturing principles and tools. The experience of organizing medical services on a paid basis allowed us to establish a patient-oriented system in the provision of primary health care to the population.. Legislative and regulatory framework governing the provision of medical services on a paid basis, guidelines for the implementation of lean manufacturing principles in medical organizations. Mathematical, analytical and descriptive methods were used. Schemes for the implementation of medical services based on optimizing the flow of created values for the patient are proposed. Changes of some indicators of the medical organization activity are analyzed. Implementation of the principles and tools of lean production leads to the solution of the problems of the current healthcare system – the effective use of the personnel potential of a medical organization, the possibility of creation additional income source for medical workers within one healthcare facility.
