the ministry of digital transformation of ukraine is working on the introduction of electronic hospitals already in 2021. the press service of the department informs about this in its facebook. "the launch of e-sick leave will allow not only to cancel sick leave as a paper certificate, which is an element of bureaucracy, but also to save time for doctors and patients.
in addition, it is an opportunity to quickly and efficiently pay sick leave without physical contact, to guarantee the validity payments and save public funds, "the ministry said in a statement.
according to the minister of digital transformation mikhail fedorov, electronic sick leave will be presented immediately in electronic form - there is no need to duplicate them in paper format.
"this will be a regular form in the online system, filling out which will take several minutes. after that, the document signed with an electronic signature is automatically transferred to other government agencies for payments," fedorov stressed.
for the introduction of electronic sick leave, the ministry of digital transformation, together with the ministry of health, is completely rebuilding the sick leave process.
"the launch will be possible thanks to the full integration of e-health care with the system of the pension fund of ukraine and the social insurance fund of ukraine," the ministry added.
