Public hospital reforms to shorten patient waiting time
A plan to do reforms on public hospitals will change the patients waiting time to see doctors at public hospital. By 2015 these reforms will take effect and patients will mot have to wait for more than thirty minutes before a doctor will see them.
Outpatient clinics will be turned into special clinics by 2015 so that patients with different symptoms can be seen faster to save time. Appointments can also be made in advance to doctors in all districts and city public hospitals to increase efficiency and saves in waiting time. Priority lanes will also be created to assist patients that need transferring to higher level hospitals.
Public health facilities will still remain as the main medical resources, this accounts for at least seventy percent of the medical resources in the city by 2015. New hospitals and medical organizations will be built in different districts in the next five years. Each district will have one city level hospital and specialty hospitals for diseases, pediatrics and oncology. Nursing services will also be given to all public hospitals who are specially trained.
Hospitals will also be asked to control labor costs and operating expenses to reduce medical fees. Drug markup will be canceled to help reduce medical expenses.
