Novopskov hospital registers first electronic sick leave certificate in LPRSociety
The first electronic sick leave certificate in the Lugansk People’s Republic has been issued by the Novopskov Central District General Hospital, the LPR Healthcare Ministry press service said in a post on Telegram.
“The document which entitles the employee to sick pay has been accepted by the Russian Social Fund,” the press service said. “The electronic format will streamline the doctors’ work, eliminate errors which were made in hard copies and ensure the timely payment of disability benefits.”
“The introduction of digital services is one of the objectives of the region's integration into the Russian health care system,” the Ministry said.
An electronic sick leave certificate cannot be lost or forged. All medical organizations across Russia began to issue electronic sick leave certificates on July 1 2017.
