Governmental Delegation chaired by the Deputy Prime-Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Gulshara Abdykalikova arrived in Semey city

The first object the honoured guests visited was the Emergency Hospital. Akim of East Kazakhstan region Danial Akhmetov told Gulshara Abdykalikova and the Minister of Healthcare of the Republic of Kazakhstan Elzhan Birtanov that in the near future the Emergency Hospital will be accredited to JCI international standard. The medical institution is among leaders. In May, the unique hybrid operating room will be opened in the Emergency Hospital.

 We equipped the operating room meeting the international standard, - Danial Akhmetov emphasized. – We have a floor angiograph here. The equipment of such scale is not available in Kazakhstan, or in the Russian Federation.

We plan to conduct in this hybrid operating room nearby 3,000 surgeries a year. KZT1,8 billion is directed to the implementation of the project.

The nearest month the first surgery will be conducted here. It will be conducted by the Chairman of the Board of the National Neurosurgery Center of the Republic of Kazakhstan Serik Akshulakov.

The principle of action of the angiograph is that it isn’t a patient goes to the diagnostic equipment, but the equipment goes to a patient, - the Head of Healthcare Administration of East Kazakhstan region Marat Shoranov added. - Areas of its application are neurosurgery, cardiosurgery, abdominal surgery, gynecology, urology. In this operating room we can conduct up to three surgeries.

The Deputy Akim of East Kazakhstan region Asem Nusupova told Gulshara Abdykalikova and Elzhan Birtanov about the Comprehensive Plan on Healthcare System Effectiveness Increasing of the region for 2017-2019. The volume of the hi-tech equipment meeting the international standards, increased in 2,5 times for 3 years, - Asem Nusupova said.

The complex program of re-equipment planned as part of the international audit will be completed due to allocating this year KZT4,9 billion for the equipment. In all, the total funding of the equipment program amounted to KZT23,4 billion for three years.

Thus, the program on professional training in the world leading clinics and scientific centres of the country is divided into three levels of service rendering. Continuous medical education during the professional activity is a key factor. The three-level program of training of medical workers in priority directions with volume of funding KZT3,7 billion has been introduced. 4080 physicians have already been trained, including 157 in the world leading clinics. All these measures are directed to creating a patient –oriented model of healthcare services meeting the world standards of equipment and quality of medical service rendering.
