Healthcare structure

The health sector structure is understood as separation

health care sectors into independent parts characterized by the specifics of the types of activities or services provided by the sub-sector.

Due to the significant variety of activities and health services and the lack of a single attribute, according to which such services can be divided into groups of homogeneous composition, the formation of a universal, statistically substantiated industry

health care structure is difficult. At the same time, by analogy with other sectors of the economy, structural components and components of the healthcare industry can be distinguished.

Depending on the method of rendering the services and the form in which their final result is presented, it is customary to divide the services into tangible (tangible), intangible and mixed, combining the signs of either type. Material services are associated with the provision of benefits or the receipt of effect in material form. IN

medicine, this is primarily the products of the pharmaceutical and medical industries, orthopedic services, certain types of dental services, as well as other services, the provision of which requires the use of materialized, material treatment as the main structure-forming. Intangible services, implemented in the form of diagnostic and treatment processes, in which the main role belongs to the content and methods of providing medical care, are more common in healthcare, while the material elements of activity are of auxiliary importance.

The division of health services into groups is possible on the basis of their mass character.
As you know, in a manufacturing economy individual, small-scale, large-scale, mass production are distinguished. According to this principle, health services can be divided into personal

(individual), family (family planning), group (vaccination), mass (quarantine measures).

More specific is the division of the healthcare industry into sub-sectors in accordance with the organizational and institutional attribute characterizing the type of medical organization, as well as the types and methods of their activity. With this approach, outpatient, inpatient, sanatorium patient care, pharmaceutical services, sanitary and epidemiological services, scientific and educational organizations, health management bodies, organizations engaged in resource provision of health care and others are distinguished.

Such a structuring of the healthcare industry is in the most consistent with the principles of the formation of the industry structure adopted in the economy and management organization.

According to the form of ownership of Russian healthcare organizations, state and municipal institutions are allocated whose fixed assets are in federal (subject of the federation), regional, local property, as well as private.

Applying the approach described above for dividing health care into sub-sectors and classifying intra-industry structures, we transform the above structure scheme of the national economy as follows (Scheme 3).
