1Training for Managers and Implementation of Management InstrumentsEfficient management practices and approaches are key to good functioning of a facility and the system. If a manager has a strategic vision and experience using management instruments, he will be able to identify weaknesses and strategies to overcome them much more easily.The Program has offered Head Doctors short trainings on relevant management issues.Topics for the trainings were chosen based on managers practical needs. Also, international experience was actively involved, and it was adapted to Ukrainian circumstances.2Topics for Trainings for Health Care ManagersHealth Care Quality ManagementElements of Strategic ManagementSituational AnalysisStakeholder AnalysisDecision Making3Topics for Trainings for Health Care ManagersHealth Care Quality Management

5Many Management Instruments Have Been Implemented in Partner FacilitiesUnderstanding monitoring principles allows Head Doctors to constructively perceive monitoring results and recommendations provided.

With the help of S matrix HCF review perinatal indicators that lets them identify problem issues.

SWO analysis and stakeholder analysis are used by managers in their routine work for situation assessment and decision-making

6Many Management Instruments Have Been Implemented in Partner FacilitiesKnowledge about fundraising has helped some Head Doctors to involve additional resources to renovate their facilities and purchase medical equipment

OpenMEDIS software (see Section on Implementing ICT-based Instruments) was installed in 55 partner facilities to analyze information about medical equipment and decision-making regarding its maintenance and use

7Implementing Principles of Energy Efficiency at Pilot Health Care Facilities

8Thats How Decisions Were MadeAfter training on energy efficiency the majority of hospitals took measures on facilities insulation. After implementing energy saving technologies more comfortable conditions were created both for patients and staff

9Principles of Energy Efficiency Were Implemented in All Pilot RegionsIn total, in partner regions principles of energy efficiency were implemented in 64 partner facilities.

For example: In Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, 65% of partner HCFs were transferred to alternative types of heating.Estimated annual savings will be 12,97 MIO UAH or 2,128 MIO m3 of natural gas.

Investors input 6,7 MIO UAH

10Energy Efficiency in Kolomyia In January 2015 the Kolomyia CRH has changes the gas heating to alternative heating by wood chips that gives the opportunity to save approximately 25% of the budget for energy

14The Program Helped Partner Facilities Managers to:correctly determine priorities for renovation/reconstruction of health care facilities and for purchasing of medical equipment

get funds for the HCF from various sources (communication with administration, using principles and practices of fundraising)

assess and apply a principle of rational zoning prior to reconstruction or renovation

15Application of fundraising knowledge helped some Head Doctors use additional resources to renovate facilities and purchase medical equipment

16Mohyliv-Podilsk Hospital Head Doctor: Our desire to participate in the program inspired large-scale changes in infrastructure and equipment!

480 thousand UAH were allocated from the Oblast budgetLocal budget money were involvedMoney of sponsors were involvedWe applied recommendations of Program experts regarding correct zoning

Medical equipment have been purchased for 56 partner facilities through bidding performed per international requirements.28Steps performed by Facilities Managers Regarding Purchasing New Medical EquipmentActual medical equipment needs assessment.Analysis of associated costs (consumables, spare parts, maintenance and repair).Training of personnel who will be working with the new equipment for its efficient use. Creating technical conditions for the equipment to work properly.Issue of maintenance for future.




During one of the previous phases of the Program it was suggested to establish Medical Equipment Maintenance Centers as part of health care systemIn Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast Pediatric Clinical Hospital, Medical Equipment Maintenance Office was established under the Program, it continues to work today too32Regionalization of Perinatal Care and Health Care Reform in Ukraine Another success story.Under the Program, it was the first time in Ukraine that efforts were made to involve family physicians to provision of perinatal services.A Perinatal Services Package was developed and approved by the Order of MOH Ukraine of 12.07.2010N 560 About the Pilot Project to Implement Perinatal Services Package It was proposed to implement perinatal care system in accordance with levels -- of care provision.These steps were the first attempt to regionalize perinatal care in pilot Oblasts of Ukraine.33Implementation of management instruments by partner facilities managers yielded the following changes in terms of quality of perinatal care provided: Key performance indicators were improved: Normal delivery rate has increased up to 80-86%.Partner deliveries rate has increased 7-fold and on average it is 85-93%.Death rate in maternity hospitals of the 1st level decreased 5-7 times (down to 0 - 1%0).Neonatal morbidity rate has decreased 2-3 times.Implementing in utero transportation system and delivery before 32 weeks gestation at level 85-90%.
