2019 № 10 The main contours of the next reform of sectoral wage system in public health
The special attention paid to staffing is not accidental – it is a natural reaction of the state to the deterioration of the situation with the number of medical workers in state (municipal) institutions. In turn, the personnel deficit has increased due to the fact that in difficult economic conditions, many institutions have taken the path of reducing workers in order to increase the wages of the remaining. These steps directly contradicted the logic of the "May" presidential Decrees of 2012, but simplified the task of achieving the salaries of medical workers at the level stipulated by these Decrees. Therefore, a number of documents reflecting the strategy of development of health care, as well as the Instructions of the President contain measures aimed at correcting the situation, including by reforming the system of remuneration of employees of state (municipal) health care institutions. At the same time, it is important not just to implement the measures provided for in these documents, but also a specific implementation mechanism. Therefore, the article analyzes the possible positive and negative consequences of various options for the implementation of measures provided for by the Instructions and other documents.
2019 № 6 New rules of obligatory medical insurance: major changes
The rules of obligatory health insurance regulate legal relations of subjects and participants of compulsory health insurance. New rules of obligatory health insurance developed by the Ministry of health of Russia in accordance with the recommendations of the Ministry of justice. The essence of these recommendations was not to make regular changes to the existing rules of obligatory health insurance, but to approve new rules of obligatory health insurance. To a large extent, these changes are associated with the Informatization of health care, with the advent of legislative regulation of the use of telemedicine technologies. Most of the changes affect the order of calculation of the value of sanctions applied to the medical organisations in the mandatory medical insurance system. In turn, these changes reflect the desire to reduce the financial burden on state (municipal) institutions and make it easier for them to achieve the level of wages provided for by the "may" presidential Decrees of 2012.
