2019 № 7 Some approaches to the labor normalization in the laboratory diagnostics
The laboratory service is one of the most difficult from the point of view of labor normalization, which is determined,
first of all, by the many and ever-increasing number of studies, the variety of equipment used, etc. Laboratory
labor standards were developed more than 20 years ago. They relate primarily to non-automated techniques and do not
reflect the modern organization of labor, new laboratory technologies, etc. Due to the lack of centrally developed labor
standards, medical organizations are forced to determine the load indicators, the number of necessary laboratory workers
mainly by expert means, or try to independently develop labor standards. In these conditions, it is necessary to determine
the main approaches to the implementation of labor standards in the laboratory service, to develop normalization methods
for various research groups. The authors' suggestions were the result of joint research by Federal Research Institute for
Health Organization and Informatics of Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation (Moscow) and St. Petersburg State
Budgetary Healthcare Institution Consultative and Diagnostic Center for Children (St. Petersburg).
2017 № 7 The issues of creation and functioning of centralized laboratories in the system of compulsory medical insurance
Centralization of laboratory diagnostics is a time commitment associated with the benefits it provides. However, the appeal to this topic is also connected with the new factors that are considered in the article. The difference in the regional features of the organization of health care, the availability of various sources of financial support for medical organizations, etc., suggest a distinction between specific models of centralization, the system of financial relationships, etc. In addition, the centralization of the laboratory service, having undoubted merits, also carries certain risks and threats that must be taken into account. This article addresses these and other issues related to the practical aspects of the centralization of the laboratory service.
