Reforming the process of passing military medical commissions was discussed at a meeting in the Government chaired by Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal. The event was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Social Policy, the Ministry of Digital Transformation, MPs, representatives of the Presidential Office, and others.
"The Government's goal is to maximize the digitalization of all processes and create conditions under which all certificates will be collected via an electronic system, and the military will receive a comfortable and fast service," the Prime Minister emphasized.
The participants of the meeting defined an action plan for reforming the Military Qualification Commission. The expert group also presented its recommendations based on the results of the previous meeting. These include increasing the capacity of the MQC, access to the electronic healthcare system, and barrier-free measures.
It is proposed to begin a pilot project to deploy an electronic document management system in military units, territorial recruitment centers, and other related structures as early as April. The next stage is the digitalization of military personnel's medical records.
The participants of the meeting also discussed the issue of reducing the investigation time for obtaining a certificate from a military unit on the circumstances of an injury. The Prime Minister gave the task to develop the necessary resolutions and amendments to the laws.
In addition, the Ministry of Health provided proposals for reforming medical and social expert commissions. Denys Shmyhal noted that this should be a comprehensive solution based on international standards, where people are the main priority.
