HA NOI (VNS) — The health ministry's Medical Examination and Treatment Management Department today launched level 4 online public services to issue licences for examinations and treatment practices.
Service level 4, the highest of the four administrative service levels in the country, is expected to ease the registration process for healthcare enterprises.
"The application of online service level 4 in examinations and treatment management is one of the health sector's efforts towards administrative procedure reform," Deputy Minister of Health Nguyen Thi Xuyen said at the launch ceremony.
The department director, Luong Ngoc Khue, said the department had provided some 10,000 licences annually to medical practices in Viet Nam.
The public service is expected to create favourable conditions for enterprises, especially in terms of reducing expenses and time and increasing transparency and publicity in the field of health administration.
People and enterprises will be able to submit documents, pay fees, check the progress of documents being processed and receive the results via the online facility from the start of next month, Khue said.
The health ministry's statistics showed that some 300,000 licences have been provided to medical practices so far, of which 10 per cent were approved by the health ministry, while the remainder were approved by provincial health departments.
The health ministry has so far launched level 4 online public services to serve the categories of drugs, cosmetics, hygiene and food safety and medical equipment management. — VNS
