The existing health care system in the Russian Federation requires significant changes related to the reorganization of the current processes of medical care in medical institutions, therefore, the topic of introducing the principles of lean production in the healthcare sector is extremely relevant today. Lean healthcare is aimed at increasing the availability and quality of medical care to the population by streamlining processes and eliminating losses. The main objectives of the medical institution as part of the implementation of the concept of lean manufacturing are to increase the satisfaction of consumers of medical services, increase the quality and productivity of medical personnel. The need to implement these tasks is caused by the unreasonably long time spent of patients in the clinic during research, the uneven workload of medical institution specialists, queues at the reception desk, filling in a large number of different paper forms and processing of unnecessary information. The study allowed us to comprehensively analyze the basic principles of the concept of lean manufacturing, to substantiate the relevance and the possibility of extrapolating its principles to the healthcare sector, as well as to study the organization of the activities of the best "lean" clinics abroad, which could become role models when introducing the principles of lean manufacturing in domestic medical organizations.

Vegetative dystonia syndrome as a somatoform disorder


Despite the fact that there is still no consensus on concept and use of vegetative vascular dystonia as a diagnostic term in Russian literature, this diagnosis has become firmly established in clinical practice. In this article we have tried to reconcile two competing concepts — psychovegetative syndrome and vascular dystonia — primarily on the basis that both concepts reflect functional disorders of suprasegmental apparatus of the autonomic nervous system (limbic-reticular complex, reticular formation of the brain stem) and have more similarities than differences, which allows us to include them in a general group of somatoform disorders.
