Patient Quota – the aggregate number of all ill patients, who have applied to outpatient clinics both in the current year and in previous years, and who are registered at the end of the reporting year.
Number of doctors – all doctors with higher (tertiary) medical education, employed at the end of the year in medical organizations, social welfare organizations, medical research institutes, as well as medical training institutions, as part of healthcare bodies and others. This indicator consists of the number of individuals, not the number of positions held by doctors.
Number of nursing staff – all persons with secondary medical education (except dentists) employed in medical organizations, social welfare organizations, preschool institutions, schools, children's homes and others (feldshers, obstetricians, nurses and others).
Network of medical organizations includes hospitals, ambulatory, outpatient organizations, emergency medical care organizations, and organizations protecting mothers and children.
The number of medical organizations providing outpatient assistance to the population includes all medical organizations with outpatient services (outpatient clinics, ambulatory outpatient units, dispensaries, outpatient units of hospitals, medical healthcare units, etc.). Balneological clinics (mud baths), spa clinics, and balneo-physiotherapeutic polyclinics may also be included, together with general hospitals and outpatient clinics. Here, information on health units, i.e. complex medical and prophylactic organizations intended exclusively, or primarily, to provide medical assistance to workers in industry and transportation, such as clinics, hospitals, health centers, and other health organizations, is included.
Hospitals provide medical healthcare services to patients. Hospital beds, equipped with the necessary implements to assist patients, are reported at the end of the year, regardless of whether or not they were used.
Incidence rate is determined by the ratio of the number of patients diagnosed to the average annual resident population. This result is multiplied by 100 000. The international classification of diseases (ICD-10), or the "International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Health Problems," is used to determine the statistical development of data on incidence within the population.
Number of sick persons by disease in medical and prophylactic organizations at the end of the year, describes the total number of all sick persons with specific diseases, who applied to ambulatory, outpatient organizations both in the current year and in previous years. The prevalence rate of a disease is calculated by the ratio of the number of all sick persons with specific diseases, registered in medical organizations at the end of the reporting year, to the total resident population at the end of the year. This result is multiplied by 100 000.
