The president Vladimir Putin gave a number of instructions to government members to improve the situation with medical personnel in the Far East. The Cabinet of Ministers was instructed, together with the regional authorities of Yakutia, Transbaikalia, the Magadan Region and the Chukotka Territory, to draw up a schedule for the gradual staffing of positions of medical workers in state and municipal medical organizations with qualified personnel. The Prime Minister will report on the results by February 2024 Mikhail Mishustinas well as governors.
In addition, Putin ordered changes to legislation to solve this problem. In particular, it is proposed to change the mechanism for determining the need of state medical institutions of the Far East for qualified medical personnel, mechanisms for filling vacant positions and remuneration of medical workers. The speaker of the State Duma will have to address the problem Vyacheslav Volodin.
One of the instructions concerns the development of medicine in the Jewish Autonomous Okrug. The Moscow authorities have been instructed to assist the regional Ministry of Health in introducing artificial intelligence (AI) into the work of medical institutions “for the purpose of processing the results of diagnostic studies.” The mayor of Moscow has been instructed to report on the results of the work Sergei Sobyanin until February 2024.
The authorities are taking various measures to improve the situation with medical personnel in the Far East. Last year, the government extended the “Far Eastern Mortgage” program to doctors – those healthcare workers who have worked in the Far East for at least five years will be able to take out a loan at a preferential rate of up to 2% for the construction or purchase of housing. In addition, the Cabinet of Ministers allowed medical conscripts to work in their specialty in the Far East as an alternative to the army.
