Dear friends!

I sincerely congratulate you on the opening of the International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations – the Nation’s Health”.
Over the years, this event has gained recognition among reputable representatives of the medical community, becoming a professional platform for the exchange of experience between leading domestic and foreign healthcare specialists.
I am convinced that the relevance of the issues brought up for discussion will give a new impetus to the improvement of quality management in healthcare and consolidate the efforts of the state, science and business in making constructive decisions on further modernization of the industry.
I sincerely wish you all fruitful work and new achievements for the health of our citizens.

Olha Bohomolets,

MP, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on Public Health

Dear colleagues!

On behalf of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on Public Health, I welcome all the participants and visitors to the ІХ International Medical Forum!
Promotion of public health must be one of the main priorities of Ukraine as a welfare state. The task of the authorities is to build a social healthcare system, so that any person would have the opportunity to receive medical care free of charge and at the highest level regardless of their wealth. Only healthy people are the key to a strong state, so the revival of human potential of Ukraine is my main goal for the coming years.
Modern society understands that this goal can only be achieved by making major changes in the healthcare system. There is no doubt that doctors are the driving force behind them. Researchers, practitioners, and heads of medical institutions prove this every day, tirelessly saving lives of our citizens despite the political and economic problems in the country.
The Forum’s annual meetings of the best representatives of the medical community in Ukraine and their colleagues from abroad are extremely effective, because here experts can exchange experience, present innovative research and developments for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases, and advance their professional level.
I firmly believe that these meetings will result in new ideas and joint decisions on the organization of healthcare, as well as ways of the industry development to improve the quality of healthcare delivery and access to it for all Ukrainians.
Participation in the Forum by institutions of higher and postgraduate medical education shows a desire to improve the training of doctors.
I sincerely thank the participants, guests, and organizers of this landmark event for Ukrainian medicine for their joint efforts in the fight for the nation’s health! I wish you all inspiration and productive work during these three days!

I. Sysoienko,

People’s Deputy of Ukraine, Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Healthcare Committee, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Monitoring the Implementation of the Medical Reform of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Healthcare Committee

Dear participants and guests, I congratulate you on the opening of the IX International Medical Forum!

When starting my own path in the field of law a few years ago, I would often hear that it is impossible to change the Ukrainian health system. That this is a utopia.
However, Soviet stereotypes are gradually being “eradicated,” and myths debunked, thanks to joint efforts of industry professionals, people’s deputies, and the public. Domestic medicine, albeit slowly, approaches the European standards of medical care.
I believe that Ukrainians will soon go to modern hospitals and clinics and will trust the doctors as before. That quality help will be available everywhere, from cities to the most remote Polissia village. That the state will provide doctors with decent wages, and patients – with truly free-of-charge medical care. That is the essence of the medical reform.
What will become of the Ukrainian medicine in 3, 5 or 20 years depends on the authorities and the medical community, on our personal responsibility, our readiness to work and to improve ourselves, to exchange experiences with our colleagues at reputable specialized events.
I hope for many innovative ideas and effective decisions coming from the professional discussions at the International Medical Forum so that each of you would return to your workplace with new knowledge and use it in practice for the benefit of patients.
Our shared responsibility is to create Europe here, in Ukraine. So, do not wait for changes, be part of them!

Pavlo Kovtonyuk,

Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine

Congratulations to all participants of the IX International Medical Forum!
I am glad that this forum has been taking place for the ninth time and is gathering a large number of professionals in the health sector.
This is an important platform for communication and discussion of industry topical issues. I am glad that the forum is getting bigger every year and the circle of participants is expanding.
Different areas in the healthcare system are discussed at various platforms of the Forum, thematic seminars are held: from tactical medicine, dentistry, medical rehabilitation, organization and management of health care, etc.
I want to thank for the direction of “management in health care”, since the autonomy of institutions causes a lot of questions, and it is good that there is a platform for discussion of simple and complex issues.
But the issue of financing health care reform is now the most urgent, because it will affect every Ukrainian this year.
The principle of payment for medical services is changing. Now the state will pay for a particular patient, for a specific service. And the campaign for choosing its doctor “The Doctor for Every Family” is underway, now every Ukrainian can choose exactly the doctor he wants to be treated.
I wish all fruitful discussions, constructive discussions for the best medicine in Ukraine!

V. Tsymbaliuk,

President and Member of National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine

Dear colleagues!
I am pleased to congratulate you on the opening of the IX International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovation — the Nation’s Health” on behalf of National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine.
Modern medical science is not only the foundation of, but also key to the country’s healthcare reforms, aimed at creating a patient-centred system that can provide medical care at the level of advanced European countries for all Ukrainian citizens.
As one of the event organizers, NAMS considers it its mission to familiarize medical practitioners with the achievements of our highly skilled and reputable specialists and help overcome the technological inferiority of the national healthcare system as compared to foreign countries.
Most of our institutes have joined the scientific and practical programme of the Forum — the VII International Medical Congress “Implementation of Modern Achievements of Medical Science in Healthcare of Ukraine,” bringing their significant scientific and talent potential.
Over the years, International Medical Forum has become the most powerful platform, allowing for integrated approach to the solution of urgent problems of the industry.
All those interested in this process — representatives of the state and local government bodies, as well as local and foreign scholars and doctors — will have the opportunity to engage in a meaningful dialogue at conferences, seminars, round tables and workshops as part of this year’s Congress, while specialized exhibitions will engage manufacturers and distributors of medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, as well as healthcare service providers.
I am convinced that the success of healthcare reforms in the country depends not only on the level of the industry financing, but also, first of all, on the true desire of passionate professionals to make real quality changes.
Therefore, I wish you all fruitful work during these three days, professional and personal growth, joyous communication with colleagues and mutually beneficial business connections!

L. Shupyk NMAPE, President of the Association of Radiologists of Ukraine, NGO

Dear organizers, participants and guests of the Forum!
I am delighted to welcome you to the annual International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations – the Nation’s Health”!
Undoubtedly, the development of radiology (roentgenology), nuclear medicine (radionuclide diagnostics) and radiological oncology (radiotherapy) is impossible without a multidisciplinary approach to the current issues of the industry. The development of modern methods and techniques in this direction is possible only with the development of technological capacity of medical institutions.
Every year, the Forum gathers leading healthcare experts, foreign scientists and manufacturers of medical equipment and enables their constructive dialogue at its platform. These meetings allow physicians of various specialties to share experience, and healthcare executives, to discuss the pressing problems of the industry and jointly seek solutions.
Active participation of the companies strengthens and broadens the cooperation between them and practicing doctors.
I am convinced that the work at the Forum will promote the development of radiology, nuclear medicine and radiological oncology in Ukraine and will allow the creation of innovative approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
I wish you all fruitful contacts, development and prosperity!

President of the Ukrainian Association of Specialists in Ultrasound Diagnostics, Chief Doctor of the Institute of Elastography, Member of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine Expert Group on Radiology, Ultrasound Diagnostics, Radiation Therapy, Radiology and Radionuclide Diagnosis, Honoured Doctor of Ukraine

Dear participants and guests of the ІХ International Medical Forum!
The International Medical Forum has been an important information and communication platform for the specialists in ultrasound and functional diagnostics, manufacturers of modern diagnostic equipment and clinicians within the Ukrainian School of Ultrasound and Functional Diagnostics for eight consecutive years.”
The best professional staff is united in relevant national associations, Ukrainian Association of Specialists in Ultrasound Diagnostics (UASUD), and Association of Radiologists of Ukraine (ARU), NGO, which provide contacts with world and European associations, in particular ESR and EFSUMB.
Functional diagnostics covers all clinical areas. Thus, modern ultrasound technologies include basic B-mode with acoustic and smart optimization, echo- Doppler hemodynamics, laser Doppler flowmetry, interventions using ultrasound volume navigation and fusion technology, 3D/4D-reconstruction, strain and shear wave elastography, fibroelastometry, steatometry and viscosimetry of the liver, contrasts, etc. The current stage of the development of ultrasound and functional diagnostics is also characterized by the miniaturization of devices, often seen in processors, screens and units of modern personal “gadgets,” i.e. smartphones, tablets and the like. Modern ultrasound and functional diagnostic devices are quite complex, and their use requires training from experts. Every year there are several dozens of new ultrasound and other instrumental technologies. Healthcare in general is progressing rapidly, and a specialist in ultrasound and FD should be aware of such innovations and know the morphology and physiology, hydrodynamics of physiological fluids and the mechanical and acoustic properties of body tissues by normal and pathological changes. The close interaction between the instrumentalist and the clinician should be based on the multidisciplinary approach for optimal patient management at all levels of the healthcare system.
Constant information support of the industry and the development of remote consultation and communication of specialists are carried out through the Ukrainian Web portal for ultrasound diagnostics www.ultrasound.net.ua and the ARU website www.aruu-ua.org. This resource provides electronic copies of field-related journals Radiation Diagnostics and Radiation Therapy, Radiological Bulletin and National Guidelines for Doctors Who Refer Patients for Radiological Studies.
The European integration and the introduction of international guidelines and guidelines for national and local clinical protocols are an important stage for the Ukrainian professional community. For instance, the ARU and UASUD have translated and published EFSUMB Guidelines and Recommendations on the Clinical Use of Liver Ultrasound Elastography. International standards of evidence-based medicine, US-BIRADS, ThiRADS, PiRADS, LiRADS, are being prepared for publication. It is urgent for the national ultrasound diagnostics to implement the Best-Practice Recommendations of the ESR Working Group “Infection Prevention and Control in Ultrasound.”
We hope that the communication between clinicians, ultrasound specialists and physicians, the exchange of experience at the exhibition booths of diagnostic equipment manufacturers during the IX International Medical Forum, and lectures and master classes of the Ukrainian School of Ultrasound and Functional Diagnostics will accelerate the introduction of new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques based on the multidisciplinary, multi-parameter and multimodal principles of modern and evidence-based medicine.
I wish you fruitful work, interesting meetings and new discoveries!
