Warszawa 27 kwietnia 2011 r. 1 DEVELOPMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH, HEALTH SERVICES AND PUBLIC HEALTH PROGRAMES IN POLAND AND IN MASOVIA VOIVODESHIP Krzysztof Romanowski M.D. Deputy Director Department of Health Office of the Marshal of the Mazovia Voivodeship
Warszawa 27 kwietnia 2011 2 Years 1948 - 1998 After World War II a new centralized, budgetary, health care financing system has been introduced in Poland. The System of financing health care, based on soviet was called „Siemaszko's model”. A similar system was existing in all countries of Eastern bloc. The beginning of this system should be the date of 29 November 1948 - the date of enactment of parliament act of „the public health care units and planned economy in the health sector”. In 1973 there has been a horizontal integration, the functional and managerial, based on medical facilities in the districts (powiat). The resulting, so-called Health Care Units, from the combined: district hospitals, outpatient specialty clinics, outpatient general clinics - municipal and rural communities, emergency services and social care centers. Today we would call these systems as "integrated care teams„. The assumptions of the budgetary system of financing health care: financing of health services and health programes from the state budget, on the basis of central planning stable budget of the health care units, based on the area, that is a place of residence of people entitled to using the system and the number of beds in hospital national organization of health service universal access no charge health service for all citizens the marginal role of the private sector in health care
Warszawa 27 kwietnia 2011 3 The good sides of the budgetary old system: universal access to no charge health service for all citizens low financial service cost for the system integration of health services - hospital - outpatient specialist clinics - outpatient general care clinics. The bad sides of the budgetary old system: lack of motivation, at management level and even the phenomenon anti-motivation to lift the level of services (better hospital - more patients - higher operating costs at the same pre-established level of funding), which in results to barriers of access to the hospital for patients difficult access to health services for patients residing outside of the assigned region of hospital (e.g., for patients from another district) difficult access to health services for patients, leading in corruption arbitrarily determined by the Ministry of Health, level of salaries for the staff in state hospitals, which depends only on their position, and is completely independent of the effectiveness and productivity of labour, effecting a weak staff engagement to their work
Warszawa 27 kwietnia 2011 4 Years 1989 – 1999 REFORM Parliamentary Act of 18 July 1998 on „universal health care insurance” (JL of 1998, No. 117 pos. 756) has introduced an insurance system of Sickness Funds. Budget funding system has been replaced by insurance system, which is a regional modification of the German insurance system in Polish health care. Functions of the organization and management have been separated from the system of financing. Assumptions the role of insurance funds: 16 Regional Sickness Funds (for the regions) One Sickness Fund for the uniformed services (police, army and others) At the same time the parliament decentralized management of public health units, most of them giving to local governments at different levels, and social care were separated from the public health.
Warszawa 27 kwietnia 2011 5 Each level of local government received the distinct tasks in the organization and management in public health and social care: Municipalities - basic health care, universal prevention programes, and some of the tasks in the field of social welfare. Districts - district hospitals (level I referentiality), outpatient specialist care and specialized health programes, and the remainder of the tasks of social welfare. Voivodship self-government - regional hospitals, (level II referentiality), in-patient psychiatric service, including hospitals, supervising for labour medicine, supervising the implementation of health programmes which are particularly important (combating drug abuse, combating alcoholism, HIV-AIDS prevention), as well as health education.
Municipalities - for the public health spend only about 1% of their budget. These measures are mainly addressed for alcohol prevention programs at the elementary level. The funds for this purpose are derived from fees for the license to sell alcohol. In addition, municipalities supervise functioning of health care in general outpatient clinic, and financing investments in this sector. Districts - districts spend on the public health about 5% of their total budget. The district’s budget funds all district investments in hospitals and outpatient specialist clinics. In addition, districts finance health service for people having no obligation to insurance (the unemployed without entitlements to any benefits and homeless people). These are the tasks refunded by grants from national budget. Voivodships - on average, regions spend for the public health, approximately 7% of their budgets. The self-government’s budget mainly finance by region’s investment in regional hospitals, including: the purchase of medical equipment, building investments, as well as important health programes, and educational activities in the field of health promotion.
