|Section 1. Introduction
The issue of hospitalization appropriateness in health organizations of the Kyrgyz Republic has been coming under notice over the recent years. Relevance of this issue is conditioned
by close link between hospitalization rate and quality of delivered services, namely between assurance of compliance of health care to objective condition of a patient at corresponding (outpatient or inpatient) level of health system and assurance of continuity of service delivery.
Data from Republican Health Information Center (RHIC) for 2006 – 2008 suggest significant increase in hospitalization rate (Figure 1). This trend was noted virtually in all
regions of the country. This partially relates to the amendments made to the State-guaranteed Benefit Package (SGBP) and provided for free service delivery to children under 5 and people over 75. As a consequence, patients started to give preference to inpatient treatment over treatment at PHC level even with noncomplicated course of disease.
