In the Vladimir region, a mechanism for remote closure of sick leaves is being launched. Artem Osipov, acting director of the regional health department, told about it during the weekly online briefing on the epidemic situation.
According to Osipov, remote closure of sick lists is relevant now, when a large number of patients are preparing to be discharged:
“Yesterday the Department of Health issued an order on remote closure of sick lists. Today our polyclinics started working on a new algorithm. If we master it, we will switch to opening the sick notes without visiting a medical institution”.
Also the head of the regional health authorities asked the patients, who easily tolerate the disease, to come to the clinics for sick leave or for a control smear in the afternoon. Before lunch in the “red areas” there are long lines, and after 16:00 it is much easier to get an appointment.
