Resolution of June 1, 2021 No. 847

From November 1, Russia will launch a pilot project to introduce a new system of remuneration in healthcare. The decree on this was signed by the Chairman of the Government Mikhail Mishustin. The new approach will make it possible to equalize the situation with the salaries of medical workers – doctors, nurses and nurses, as well as to avoid a shortage of personnel in one region and an overabundance in another.

The pilot project will take place in seven regions. These are Belgorod, Kurgan, Omsk, Orenburg and Tambov regions, Sevastopol and Yakutia.

Now regional hospitals and polyclinics independently determine the size of the salaries of employees, and there are no uniform requirements for the appointment of incentive and compensation payments throughout the industry. As a result, depending on the medical institution, the salaries of medical workers of the same profile and qualifications may differ.

A pilot project aims to address this problem. During the experiment, the salaries of medical workers will be calculated according to new rules – taking into account the coefficient of differentiation depending on the complexity of work, as well as the coefficient of economic development of the region. The size of regional coefficients and the calculation methodology will be established by the Government at the suggestion of the Ministry of Labor and the Ministry of Health. They will also prepare and submit to the Government draft unified lists of compensation and incentive payments, the size and conditions of appointment.

The document stipulates that the salary of medical workers during the pilot project should not be lower than the salary under the current remuneration system.

The pilot project will run until March 2022. Based on its results, uniform requirements for the remuneration system for medical workers throughout the country will be determined.

The President of Russia Vladimir Putin instructed the Government to develop new approaches to the formation of salaries in the healthcare sector.
