Ukrainian Medical Reform to Bring Modern Healthcare to Every Village
The flagship center is an innovative medical and natal center in the village of Bodenky
State-of-the-art medical examinations are being made more widely available in rural Ukraine, thanks to a new telemedicine system.
The flagship center is an innovative medical and natal center in the village of Bodenky, in northern Ukraine.
Ukraine was inspired by Germany’s experience to implement the system. Croatian specialists will teach Ukrainian medical workers to operate the equipment. The center’s building was developed by a French architect. It has been designed to use minimal heating.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the model of telemedicine for rural medicine combines a qualified medical worker and the most necessary equipment for a rapid analysis and diagnostics in a rural laboratory. The information then goes to a medical hub where the doctors read cardiograms, analyze the data, and correctly diagnose people, saving precious minutes and hours.
In the near future, as more modern centers like this are opened, they will be joined into an all-Ukrainian rural medicine network.
