    Primary health care is a highly effective and efficient way to tackle the root causes and risks of poor health
    status, and to address emerging problems that threaten future health and well-being.
    Goal: Develop a model for predicting the need for general practitioners (GPs) until 2030, taking into account various
    input data in the equations describing the movement of labor resources in the form of “flows” and “ stocks “ using the
    method of system dynamics.
    Methods: The model was built using the Any Logic program, based on information about the availability of primary
    health care doctors, demographic data and the general prevalence of diseases in the population. Three scenarios were
    considered to predict the need for general practitioners. The base year was 2018, the forecast was carried out until 2030.
    Results: All of three scenarios indicate that with the current number of graduated GPs, the shortage of primary care
    physicians will be exacerbated. In general, the shortage can reach more than two thousand.
    Conclusion: Government and medical universities need to take measures to correct the number of students in the specialty of “General Practitioner” in order to avoid a growing shortage of primary care physicians in the future until 2030.

  • 2017 № 5 Study of workload and working time costs of general practitioners in healthcare organizations in Kazakhstan

    The article presents the results of a chronometric analysis of patients from the Karaganda policlinic, while analyzing and studying the costs of the doctor’s working hours for performing various labor operations. In addition, the main factors influencing the duration of admission of general practitioners of primary care organizations were identified, and we also compiled a forecast of the duration of GPs’ admission, depending on the treatment of some variables. Statistical analysis determined the main factors affecting the duration of admission of patients by GPs. These include the Communicative Factor or Component 1, Operating Procedures or Component 2, and Working with Documentation or Component 3
