Event Summary:
Ukraine: eHealth Opportunities Webinar – December 4, 2018, 11 am EST

Ukraine's economy is among the largest in Eastern Europe with significant potential for growth: anticipated 3% GDP growth in 2019-2020. On January 1, 2018, healthcare reform laws came into force in Ukraine. This marks the first step of the transformation of the post- Soviet stagnating health system into a Western-style, health insurance-based one.

With the support of international partners, the eHealth Project Office has developed the functionality that was required by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine to initiate the healthcare reform. In fall 2017 the ownership of the eHealth project was transferred from international donors to the Ministry of Health. The State-Owned Enterprise (SoE) “Electronic Health” was created to take care of the further development and implementation of eHealth. Today SoE “Electronic Health” presents a new brand - “eZdorovya” so not to confuse the eHealth system itself with the functions of SoE “Electronic Health”. The National Health Service of Ukraine (NHSU), a new central executive body, became functional since April 2018 to manage the financial system of healthcare in Ukraine. The only option to work with NHSU is via eHealth system.

The webinar will give you an overview of the Ukrainian healthcare market and will highlight:

• opportunities emerging in the Ukrainian market with the development of healthcare reform

• model, development and integration, current state and prospects of eHealth System in Ukraine

• opportunities emerging with the development of digital infrastructure in clinics and laboratories

Join us to hear the following featured speakers:

Dan Matsui, PhD, CEO of the State Enterprise Electronic Health

Vladyslav Kostyk, Business Development Director of the State Enterprise Electronic Health

Oksana Movchan, NHSU Strategy Advisor
