To organizers, participants and guests of the International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations — the Nation’s Health”

Dear friends!

I welcome you at the opening ceremony of the International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations — the Nation’s Health”.

Thanks to its reputation, the International Medical Forum has become an independent platform for fruitful dialogue between the state, science and business.

The combination of research and practice and business programs within the framework of traditional annual meetings creates the conditions for presenting innovative methods of prevention, diagnostics and treatment, encourages exchanges of experience to use the best practices.

I am convinced that fruitful discussions on the current healthcare issues will demonstrate the readiness of our doctors and managers to change, will combine efforts of all stakeholders to make important decisions on reforming the industry.

I sincerely wish you all success and professional cooperation to improve the quality and accessibility of medical assistance for the population of Ukraine.

O.V. Bohomolets,

To organizers, participants and guests of the X International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations — the Nation’s Health”

Dear collegues!

I sincerely welcome you at the opening ceremony of the X International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations — the Nation’s Health”!

Your representative forum is an important event for the medical community of Ukraine. Thanks to its reputation gained among national and international healthcare experts for last ten years, the International Medical Forum has become an independent platform for fruitful dialogue between the state, science and business.

Every year this event serves as a platform for fruitful discussions on the most pressing issues relating to the implementation of state healthcare policy, the improvement of quality and accessibility of medical care services, the regulations of professional activity, professional self-government and constant professional development.

I am convinced that in the context of chaotic changes in the healthcare system, insufficient cooperation between the executive power and the medical community and the lack of a comprehensive strategy for healthcare development, such events have a significant effect on the further development of the national healthcare system and reduce risks of making wrong management decisions.

I believe that this year the forum will demonstrate a sincere and open dialogue between the representatives of authorities and doctors in order to achieve our common goal – be a healthy and happy nation, have an effective and transparent healthcare system, high-quality and available medical care.

I wish you inexhaustible energy, fruitful teamwork and good mood. Work hard, dream bravely, act wisely! As Theodore Roosevelt said “Believe you can and you are halfway there”.

I. V. Sysoienko,

people’s deputy of Ukraine,
deputy chairperson of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on Public Health

I sincerely welcome the organizers, participants and guests of the Tenth International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations — the Nation’s Health”!

The most important thing is that within the framework of this Forum we have opportunity to systematically analyze the changes in the healthcare system and define directions for its strategic development, including organization and management and introduction of modern medical innovations.

The healthcare system could hardly be overestimated. For this reason so sensitive industry needs highly-qualified personnel, in particular senior managers. The leading role of effective management is about reducing the effect of risks on the healthcare system, starting from the national management of the industry to the management of a certain healthcare institution.

The reform of the healthcare and educational systems being implemented at the legislative level has gradually changed the situation for the better. This applies especially to the autonomy of medical institutions as their managers are accountable for organizing public health service.

The introduction of a new funding model for public health care requires fundamental changes in the relationship between a provider of medical services and its customer — the National Health Service of Ukraine. The command and administration model should be replaced by a contract model for all kinds of medical services by January the 1st, 2020.

It means that all relations will be regulated by medical services contracts that determine exact criteria of funding. We already can see the first positive results in primary care, in particular, the raise in wages of health care providers.

Personally, I have challenging tasks to create conditions to improve the quality and access to healthcare and to introduce innovative medical technologies. Therefore, it is important to introduce in Ukraine an assessment model for medical technologies that allow to take well-considered decisions by participants of the healthcare system to use resources rationally to introduce innovative medical technologies. And this allows to provide accessibility, to improve the quality and efficiency of medical services for patients and also prevents corruption in the medicine procurement and the provision of medical services.

The subjects for discussion at the International Medical Forum are extremely pressing, which proves the necessity for an open dialogue between the representatives of the healthcare system and the authorities for the implementation of progressive initiatives.

The health promotion, disease prevention and effective treatment are the most important conditions for the protection and improvement of welfare of each person and society as a whole. Cooperation and partnership are essential, which defines the differentiate role and responsibility for the healthcare of all its participants.

I wish you good health, a constructive dialogue, new ideas and fruitful work!

S. I. Berezenko,

People’s deputy of Ukraine,
Member of Verkhovna Rada Healthcare Committee

Dear participants of the X Anniversary International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations — Nation’s Health”!

I am honored to congratulate you on the beginning of one of the largest events for the medical community!

The overwhelming majority of you might have been already involved in a significant transformation of the domestic healthcare system, while some might have already seen its benefits.

Like any matter of great concern, the medical reform cannot be done in a day, a month or even a year since the reform introduces new, fundamentally different approaches and changes the system of values and principles of interaction between healthcare professionals and patients. Step by step, we are approaching European standards, and our medical institutions become more comfortable and better equipped. Of course, we have to face mistakes, missteps, legal conflicts, legislative gaps, and even some artificially created populist barriers on the way of reforming our healthcare system.

That is why I would like to encourage you all to have a dialogue at the Forum — to communicate, share your opinion and ideas, and, probably, hear just criticism.

Let’s think globally and join our efforts because we are all responsible for the future of Ukrainian medicine!

I wish you professional growth and communication that will inspire you to new achievements, and I hope you have a wonderful experience at the International Medical Forum!


kovtonyuk-medforum-in-ua-2019
Pavlo Kovtoniuk,

Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine

I welcome all participants of the X International Medical Forum!

During the decades the public and private sectors of the healthcare system operated separately from each other, with less cooperation. I am very happy that in 2018 we have succeeded in changing it.

Currently, thousands of municipal institutions and hundreds of private clinics and medical centers cooperate with the National Health Service of Ukraine to provide citizens with high-quality primary medical assistance.

I am convinced that this is the only beginning of cooperation in the framework of transformation of the healthcare system.

We witness the emergence of a real market of medical services in Ukraine — oriented to welfare of patients and professional development of doctors. The market making no difference between private and public centers, artificial barriers and soviet bureaucracy. The market where a patient chooses a provider and receives highquality assistance.

New market conditions require new leadership for the industry. The cooperation with the National Health Service of Ukraine requires rational use of resources and implementation of effective procedures within a medical center. I am glad that there are platforms like the International Medical Forum where experts engaged in public and private sectors may exchange their experience and case studies.

CHIEF PHYSICIAN SHOOL is of particular note. I hope that this initiative will be a platform where proactive managers of medical institutions may find answers to the question: “How to succeed in the reformed healthcare system?”

We have a lot of work to do. In 2019 we are launching new electronic tools: medical information card, prescription, referral forms, sickness certificates. The provision of specialized medical care in hospitals and medical centers will be funded according to new rules.

It will be a difficult way, but we cannot choose other option. Let’s move on together.

Roman Ilyk,

Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine

Dear collegues, I welcome you at the opening ceremony of the X International Medical Forum!

We live in the extremely hard and interesting time. Last year the transformation of the industry seemed to be an unachievable goal, but now it is not just taking shape, but we can see the first results in primary care. In 2020 the changes will be implemented at all levels of medical services supply.

In addition to the financing approach, we are also changing the medicines and medical products supply chain, improving the reimbursement system and working on the best provision of hospitals with medicines. We are developing an electronic healthcare system, implementing an electronic prescription and other electronic documents. We are reforming the system of medical education of Ukraine, developing the system of transplantation, promoting the prevention measures, in particular vaccination.

We are happy with our achievements, but focus on next goals.

We have a lot of work to do. The quality of the Ukrainian healthcare industry in 2, 5, 10 years depend on our personnel responsibility, readiness to cooperate and improve to build a new model oriented to each citizen of Ukraine.

For 10 years in a row the International Medical Forum has become a platform for communication and discussion of pressing issues. Get involved into an open and professional discussion relating to the transformation of the healthcare system. We have a common goal and unique opportunity to create an effective healthcare model.

R. M. Isaenko,

Head of the State Service of Ukraine on Medicines and Drugs Control

Dear colleagues!

I sincerely welcome participants and guests of the X International Medical Forum.

I am very happy to take part in the event that unites the Ukrainian medical community: doctors, researchers, heads of healthcare institutions, IT developers, manufacturers and suppliers of drugs and medical supplies.

Recently, the Ukrainian healthcare system has been reformed. Alongside the healthcare reform, the work on the improvement of the pharmaceutical supply system has continued. It is the State Service of Ukraine on Medicines and Drugs Control that implements the state policy on medications and drugs quality control and licensing pharmaceutical activity. And I am glad that the Organization and Management in Pharmacy is one of the priorities of the Forum, where several events for manufactures of pharmaceutical products will take place.

We have a lot of work to do. So, get involved, give your assistance and proposals, share your experience as we have a common goal and a unique chance to create a really effective pharmaceutical supply system for the Ukrainian people!

See you at the events dedicated to the scientific agenda of the X International Medical Forum!

I wish you fruitful work and interesting meetings!

Dear friends!

In the tenth year the participants of the International Medical Forum Medicine Innovations — the Nation’s Health” have gathered together in the best city in the world to join their creative, research and professional potential for the development of medicine!

It is not the first time when I am honored to take part in the Forum, so, from my experience, I may say that this is the most prestigious platform for experts who dedicated their lives to the medical science, practical medicine and medical education!

I am absolutely convinced that you all, both permanent guests and those who have joined us for the first time, have one common feature. The willingness to improve yourselves by improving the global medicine. That very reasonable perfectionism, in my opinion, is a real driver, motive power of any development and movement.

Therefore, on behalf of the Healthcare Department of Kyiv I wish you, distinguished participants of the Forum, to achieve your agenda and get benefits and enjoy new findings, exciting and inspiring meetings, communication with like-minded people and acquired knowledge!

Borys Y. Paton,

President, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine NASU Academician

Dear colleagues!

I am glad to congratulate you on the start of the X Anniversary International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations — the Nation’s Health”!

A truly unique event, this Medical Forum helps its participants use fundamental knowledge to solve extremely challenging tasks in medicine from the development of innovative pharmaceuticals and devices to the implementation of “the technology of tomorrow”.

In my opinion, it is the open dialogue and systematic cooperation between innovators and experts who apply innovations in practice to drive the development of national science.

I would like to note, not without pride, that the institutions within the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine have proposed many developments for the healthcare industry, including in particular a family of electrostimulation devices with biological feedback to restore movements and speech in patients suffered from severe nervous system disorders, such as stroke, infantile cerebral paralysis and others, and more than 15 thousand patients have already benefited from such therapy.

More than 150 procedures in abdominal surgery, traumatology, pulmonology, proctology, mammology, gynecology, otolaryngology, and ophthalmology are based on our domestic revolutionary technology of electric welding of living soft tissues which significantly reduces blood loss and improves wound healing. More than 200 thousand surgeries have been successfully done so far.

I believe that these achievements are just the beginning of a global era of developments and do hope that the Ukrainian government will eventually provide our research community with tangible support so our scientists could realize their creative potential as full as possible.

I wish you many interesting projects and professional discussions to lay down the strong basis for groundbreaking changes!

V. Tsymbaliuk,

President and Member of National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine,
Academician

Dear colleagues!

On behalf of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine (NAMS), I am glad to congratulate you on the opening of the X Anniversary International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations— Nation’s Health”.

As a co-organizer, NAMS sees its mission in familiarizing practitioners with the achievements of our highly skilled and authoritative professional community and in promoting the development of the national health system.

Most NAMS institutions have joined the development of the scientific and practical program of the Forum— the VIII International Medical Congress “Introduction of Modern Medical Science Advances into Healthcare Practice in Ukraine”. Medical science becomes not only a foundation but also a key success factor for the reforms initiated in the domestic healthcare sector to develop a patient-oriented system that could provide medical care for all Ukrainian citizens at the level of developed EU member states.

Over the years, the International Medical Forum has become the most powerful platform that provides a good background for the development of a comprehensive approach to address current healthcare issues.

Representatives of national government and local authorities and domestic and foreign scientists and doctors will take part in a constructive dialogue at conferences, seminars, round-table discussions, and master classes held as part of this year’s Congress. Specialized exhibitions will bring together manufacturers and distributors of medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, and providers of healthcare services.

I believe that medical specialists will get most and enhance their professional level by attending Forum events and get acquainted with the latest medical equipment, instruments, and products by visiting specialized exhibitions.

I congratulate the participants, organizers, and guests of the International Medical Forum on the X anniversary and wish fruitful work, networking, and success in their professional activities!!

Y. V. Voronenko,

Dr. habil. med., professor,
academician of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine,
Rector of P.L. Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education

Distinguished participants and guests, I sincerely congratulate you with the beginning of the Forum!

Spring is not only awakening of nature and sunny mood, but it is time for the International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations— the Nation’s Health”!

It is a special event in the medical events schedule. It is a wonderful communication platform, a great opportunity to meet with extraordinary people and multi-disciplinary experts, a considerable exhibition that allows to test a state of the art equipment and learn more how to use it.

The Shupyka National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education as a source of manpower for the healthcare system of Ukraine absolutely supports high-quality educational initiatives. The International Medical Forum is an excellent example of how to keep in steps with the facts of life during the organization of similar programs.

Due to the lack of time and busy schedule practicing physicians have less opportunities to visit long-lasting conferences and workshops. And the dynamic and multi-faceted format of the Forum and clear subject matters of panels and “quintessence of knowledge”, which relates to the changes in the legislation, management of medical institutions, protocols, requirements to equipment, allow the participants to learn more about the current novelties in different segments of the healthcare system.

I would like to announce that with the support of the Shupyka National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education the following subject matter will be discussed within the framework of the VIII International Medical Congress “The Introduction of Modern Medical Science Advances into Healthcare Practice in Ukraine”: innovative developments for prevention, diagnostics and treatment that will be put into the domestic medical practice in the upcoming years. We will also focus on the changes in the medical education system.

I congratulate guests and organizers with the tenth anniversary of the International Medical Forum! May this wonderful spring tradition of the medical community to meet and communicate continue!
