Dear patients, partners and colleagues,Creating a serious and interdisciplinary clinic is a long and multi-stage process. Since 1990 Medicina Clinic has beenconsecutively developing in order to change patients‘ perception of the quality of health care provided. We combinethe experience of the best Russian and foreign hospitals thanks to the key value of serving our patients. Introduction ofthe world‘s best practices aims to help the Clinic to change, improve and always go ahead by keeping the dialoguewith patients going and taking into consideration the issues that are really important for them.It is not accidental that Medicina JSC is the first Russian clinic accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI).Currently, there are a bit more than 440 foreign hospitals that are accredited according to JCI standards, i.e. meet theworld‘s highest standards. Joint Commission International Accreditation is the most objective and prestigious healthcare certification, which serves as the evidence of conformance of a medical institution to medical and administrativestandards approved at the international level and, also, to the requirements for securing international patient safetygoals.In 2010 the Clinic became a laureate of the Russian Government Quality Award. Medicina JSC is certified accordingto international standards (its Quality management system is certified according to ISO 9001:2008; it is also a winnerof a Recognized for Excellence ***** (5 stars) Award according to the European Foundation for Quality Management(EFQM) Excellence Model.The Clinic‘ activities are characterized by unprecedented openness and the dialogue we keep with our patients.Patients can review their health records online, receive videos of surgeries and examinations on DVDs and assessdoctors‘ activities at www.medicina.ru. The demand for such dialog is steadily growing.Medicina Clinic is an organization whose activities are aimed at ensuring social accountability, i.e. accountability forthe quality of patients‘ life and tranquility of your near and dear ones as well as accountability for introduction of themost effective diagnostic and treatment methods that are currently applied throughout the world and for creation of afavorable environment that would contribute to a treatment process. We give people the opportunity to choose thequality and service in health care and, what is even more important, the attitude to their health. Certainly, our servicesare not affordable for everyone. However, if we speak about the services provided to people living nearby undermandatory health insurance programs, they are rendered at lower rates and are free for patients.It is not only care for patients‘ desires and demands that characterizes ―health care with a human face‖. It is importantthat the Clinic supports the community where it works. In the first place, we orient towards creating favorable laborconditions for our staff. Medicina Clinic provides unique opportunities for professional growth and research work. Ouremployees get free medical treatment at the clinic.We respect the professional medical community, which is like a source of manpower for us, i.e., our colleagues whocontrol the quality of treatment at our Clinic and our partners. We organize free workshops for doctors from variousmedical institutions.
We realize that being among the industry‘s leaders we have a real opportunity to help those in need. And, what ismore, we have a big desire to do it. In 2011 the Clinic established a charity foundation providing assistance to medicalprofessionals - ―Healthcare Fraternity‖. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that a decision re. the recipients of aid is made bymedical staff on a voting basis.The areas for the Clinic‘s development are chosen on the basis of society‘s demands. Thus, to improve Russian cancerdiagnostic and treatment standards it has been agreed that an oncology center of Medicina JSC should be established.Early 2012 a new building comprising a hi-tech cancer center that is being built with the methodical support of leadingforeign clinics (Memorial Sloan-Cancer Center, USA, and Rabin Medical Center — Davidoff Center, Israel) will beput into operation. This is going to be a model center that will incorporate all world‘s recent innovative cancertreatment technologies.Innovations in ensuring the quality of medical care are the result of systematic work performed in all the areas of theClinic‘s activities and an impetus for further development and improvement. Medicina Clinic‘s achievements arerecognized by the most reputable foreign and Russian experts.I would like to emphasize that all our achievements, awards and diplomas are only the tip of the iceberg at the base ofwhich there is every day work performed by hundreds of people that are united by an interest in something new, careabout patients and the desire to contribute to tailoring to patients‘ needs. The most important thing about it is theongoing impetus to become better which makes you go ahead. Such impetus for us is the opinion of our patients.Therefore, we have been making our best efforts to establish a dialogue with patients, using all possiblecommunications, for many years.With thanks and kind regards,President, ―Medicina‖ JSCAcademician of the RussianAcademy of Medical SciencesProfessor, MD, PhD,The Honoured Physician of the RFWinner of the Prize of the Governmentof the Russian Federationin the field of education

Medicina JSC orients towards the continuous improvement of medicalcare quality and service by attracting the expertise of the world‘s best healthcare institutions. By competing withRussian as well as with the world‘s best clinics the Clinic responds to today‘s macroeconomic challenges. MedicinaJSC has become a real alternative to foreign clinics for CIS citizens in connection with its accreditation according tothe most reliable international JCI medical care standards in 2011.Nowadays the Company has three strategic goals:1. Constant improvement of the Clinic‘s activities in order to satisfy patients‘ demands in full and retaining leadershippositions for quality in the Russian private medicine market through improvement of a management system.2. Ensuring a steady growth of the Company‘s revenue and income.3. Well-balanced growth in the scope of rendered medical services, including a wider range of hospital services inconnection with the construction of a new building.Construction of the Clinic’s new building.Currently, we are implementing a project of the building‘s reconstruction on the territory adjacent to the existingbuilding, which was started at the end of 2009. The project‘s implementation will considerably expand the Clinic‘sopportunities connected with the provision of full-scale medical care to patients and ensure that the Clinic will becomeone of the best clinics in Europe as regards the applied technologies, including IT technologies penetrating into andsecuring all production processes.The new treatment facility of Medicina JSC occupying over 20,000 m² will house a 100-bed inpatient section with 4surgeries, including a cardiovascular hybrid operating room, a big intensive care unit, admissions, single and doubleoccupancy wards, a VIP section for 5 wards, Therapy and Family Medicine Chair of RSMU and other supportservices. A cardiovascular hybrid operating room combines the opportunities of an operating room for cardiacintervention treatments and open heart surgeries. At this type of operating room one can simultaneously perform suchsurgeries as balloon angioplasty, stenting and heart bypass operations. Hi-tech cardiac surgery is one of the mostimportant areas of the Clinic‘s development.Moreover, the new building will also house advanced medical equipment: 2 MRI scans of the latest generation, aPositron Emission Tomography machine and a robotized set of laboratory equipment. The old and the new buildingswill be connected by a sheltered underpass.The new building will be put into operation step by step in 2012, given the balanced growth of its capacities with aview to reaching the expected targets within a year from the launch of the inpatient facility.
Business strategy.The strategy of Medicina JSC is based on mastering its socially accountable activities.1. Serving patients’ needs. The most important customer-oriented target is to ensure that patients are provided withhigh quality medical care and service. For evaluation purposes, we introduced customer satisfaction ratios re. thequality of service rendered at the polyclinic and at the inpatient facility. We reach our targets by following our ownquality standards and using the best medical practice achievements (MES ―Same day practice‖, ―Doctor-supervisor,individual assignment of doctors to patients, hospitalizations, patients‘ feedback‖, Continuity, Health examination,―Completed case‖, ―Relation of recurrent appointments to initial appointments‖, ―Lines‖). We exercise control andreview the implementation of JCI international standards re. the quality and safety of medical care; control and analyzeconformity with claims and complaints regulations; have introduced performance indicators for doctors and nurses;control the operation of medical devices; arrange infection, laboratory and radiation safety management as well asmanagement over the storage and use of pharmaceuticals. The task of the Advertising and Marketing Departments isto increase the Clinic‘s recognition among patients. We monitor the recognition ratio using the Business Starmethodology and hope to reach 10% by 2014. We connect recognition with the use of innovative solutions in ouractivities to ensure patients‘ well-being2. Commitment to quality. The targets of this prospect for ensuring leadership with regard to the quality of medicalservices aim at the improvement of internal processes. The targets of this group of goals are implemented throughmeasures aimed at the development of the Clinic‘s innovative potential, use of the quality criteria of the ―Universityclinic‖ and introduction of a system that controls and reviews the extent of achieved results. The KPI system ensuressystematic control and individual evaluation of each employee‘s performance (be it a doctor or a nurse), review of theextent of achieved results and creation of educational programs for employees. There are 4 types of control: control ofthe 2nd, 3rd, 4th levels (daily, monthly, quarterly control) and control as per check lists. The results are summarized bythe Quality Committee. Based on these results, we elaborate plans for improvement and training programs. Controlmeasures take account of the percentage of negative marks and their share in the List of comments. The biggestpercentage of comments affects the form of a training program. Medicina Clinic serves as the base for the Chair ofTherapy and Family Medicine of N.I.Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University (RNIMU), with trainingprovided to doctors specializing in ―Therapy‖ and ―General practice‖ (Family medicine). In collaboration with theIowa State University the Clinic organizes international symposiums and scientific and practical internationalconferences.3. Teamwork/Staff/Development. The targets of this prospect aim at increasing employees‘ loyalty and commitment.Indicators: employees‘ satisfaction and stability (turnover, percentage of employees working for 7+years),improvement of staff‘s qualifications. The targets are implemented via a system of motivation, considerable increasein discounts for medical services for employees (additional services) and their family members, social benefits, 100%health examination, vaccinations. Institute of Consultants started its development as a school of medical art.Consultants are involved in rounds, councils, consultations, training and scientific events. An attestation programensuring the employee‘s individual growth has been adopted. The Clinic supports 4 types of training; over the recentyear internal education has come to the foreground. Also, the important indicator is the ratio of doctors of the highestcategory as well as the ratio of candidates and doctors of medical sciences.4. Social accountability. Social development targets are aimed at ensuring the Clinic‘s steady development as asocially accountable company. We create our social strategy on the basis of the 4 following success factors:- Transparency, openness and social accountability. An open report incorporating socially relevant targets andindicators is available at www.medicina.ru. The Clinic has been granted ―The Best Moscow Employer‖ Award.-. Free will to establish relations with professional communities. We reach our targets by disseminating accumulatedknowledge and organizing free lectures and workshops for Moscow doctors. We invite leading Moscow specialists toprovide consultations. Doctors have the opportunity to participate in Clinic‘s rounds, clinical debates and conferences.The Chair‘s employees ensure the activities of a free ―school of health‖.- Guarantees of quality combined with best practice standards. Any medical care is rendered in accordance with thestandards of medical care guarantees, which practically secures an equal number of medical services for variouscategories of patients. In order to improve the quality of our patients‘ life we introduce recent and most advancedmedical technologies. The indicators of innovations are taken into consideration in all areas of medical activities andeach new area represents a new area for consumers.
- Charity. ―Healthcare Fraternity‖ Foundation was established. The Clinic takes part in ―Fedorov‘s days‖ Moscowcharity program and helps to equip a district hospital. The charity program orients towards the areas where we aremost competent and where the maximum results for society can be achieved.5. Finances and control. The main financial targets of the Clinic are company value growth (income and revenueindicators), capitalization via reinvesting income into the Clinic‘s development (min. 50% of net income is investedinto further development of the Clinic), ensuring high profitability and increase in the share of high tech servicesprovided by the Clinic (since 2011).Innovative SMART-clinic projectIn 2012 Medicina JSC will put into operation a new building whose area exceeds 20,000 m2. The new building is notonly a tool for expanding the scope of rendered services and reaching the best financial results. It is related to theintroduction of qualitative changes in our activities and turning into reality our dream of the Clinic of the 21st century.In the run up to the opening of a new building, development of technological opportunities and provision of the newquality of services Medicina JSC has been implementing a smart clinic project in collaboration with IT leaders. Thisproject is based on a Data Processing Center (DPC) designed in accordance with reliability, safety and fault-tolerancerequirements. The smart clinic project underlies centralized management over the engineering and IT infrastructure ofthe building. This is a pilot project that has no analogues in Russia.The new premises will be used to expand the inpatient section and house a diagnostic department, Therapy and FamilyMedicine Chairs of RSMU, engineering services and a cancer center of the international level. These projects shouldbe implemented in those areas of medicine that lag behind the world‘ best practice as far as Russia and Moscow areconcerned. We trust that our choice will improve the quality of life of our patients and will give them hope inresolving their problems.An interdisciplinary inpatient facility at the new building of the Clinic is intended for 100 beds. It is going to have 4modern operating rooms, including a hybrid operating room, and an intensive care unit. Smart operating rooms thatwill be put into operation at the new building of the Clinic serve as a vivid example of how hi tech technologies areimplemented in the healthcare sector. In particular, an automatic anesthesia control system is envisaged to be used atsuch operating rooms. Once a surgeon enters a smart operating room all the equipment is already adjusted according tohis/her preferences, which cannot but contribute to a successful result of any surgery.In 2012 Medicina JSC will put into operation a new building with a high tech cancer center that is being built withmethodological assistance of foreign clinics (Memorial Sloan Cancer Center, USA, and Rabin Medical Center —Davidoff Center,Israel). This is a socially relevant project. The Cancer center of Medicina JSC will be a role modeland will implement all the world‘s known existing innovative technologies for diagnosis and treatment of cancerpatients.
The cancer center is intended for: Improvement and implementation of new radiation technologies for diagnosis and treatment of the most serious diseases. Provision of a full scope of hi tech treatment and diagnostic services to population.The cancer center of Medicina JSC will house a Radiation Detection Department (using the first in Moscow PET/CTGemini TF Philips and Bright View Gamma Camera), a Radiation Therapy Department equipped with two linearaccelerators of the revolutionary new TrueBeam model produced by VARIAN (the first in Russia) and aChemotherapy Department for 25 posts combined with a laboratory preparing chemical agents and an outpatientcenter for cancer patients.Radiation healthcare technologies (diagnostic and therapeutic) are widely used in practically all countries of the world.As soon as a cancer center of Medicina JSC is put into operation it will allow Medicina JSC to reduce the cancer deathrate by 25%.We plan to provide high tech treatment to patients suffering from malignant tumors (main localizations) and cardio-vascular diseases. Treatment of cancer pathologies will be provided both as a separate solution for radical or palliativecare and can be also used as a stage of combined and complex treatment of malignant tumors (main localizations).The cancer center of Medicina JSC will become a part of a bigger clinical complex. This not just an advantage, this isa necessity. It is very important for any patient to undergo diagnostics and get treatment at an interdisciplinary clinic,since any person has his/her own peculiarities as well as aggravating and ancillary diseases. At our center we willchoose the optimal and individual approach to treatment of our patients.Medicina Clinic implements state-of-the-art visualization technologies with the help of the most advanced equipment:CT scans, MRI and PET/CT machines that can provide all the information required for treatment recommendations,including the latest single cancericide dose technology.Radiotherapy plays an important role in treatment of various types of cancer. Even now cancer patients have toundergo long radiotherapy procedures that might take 4-6 weeks. This is pretty tiring. We are introducing a technologythat could allow us to reduce the number of sessions from 30-40 to 1. The doctors of the cancer center attendedtraining in the US and Israel. F.e., among our employees are unique specialists – medical physicists that haveundergone serious studies abroad.Our approach to diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation at the cancer center of Medicina Clinic is substantiallydifferent from the common approach. Diagnostics would take 24-28 hours, i.e. we will perform all requiredexaminations, incl. morphology and biopsy, within two days. Afterwards the council of doctors of various specialties,with the best foreign consultants involved, if necessary, will work out an individual treatment plan. Then we will keepan eye on the patient who will get all types of treatment until his/her recovery or disease remittance.By applying the most effective diagnostic methods and providing integrated treatment of cancer we do our best toextend the longevity and improve the quality of life of patients. Thus, in Moscow and other metropolises the averageage of men who are diagnosed cancer is 61 years. In Germany and other developed countries they live 12.5-14 yearsafterwards, while the figure for Russia is as low as 2.5 years. So, we have been fighting for these 12 years.Benefits of Medicina Clinic.In its activities the Clinic implements advanced achievements of the world‘s healthcare system, which is confirmed byinternational health care experts.Quality of medical care in accordance with the world’s best standards.Medicina JSC is the only clinic in Russia accredited according to Joint Commission International (JCI).

We meet the criteria of the best international clinics, as our readiness to keep the conversation going andour care about patients have become the philosophy of our Clinic. Thus, any patient can evaluate the Clinic‘s doctorsaccording to several criteria at the Clinic‘s web-site. The doctors rating, open to public, is made up in the real timeformat. The Clinic‘s web-site and medical information system are interconnected. That is why patients can make anappointment at the web-site and look through their health records, examination results and tests in the Personal cabinetsection. Patients can get a DVD with their examination results in order to receive the so-called second opinion ofdoctors from other medical institutions. Patients‘ feedback is very important to us, this is the reason why we pay closeattention to consideration of patients‘ proposals and questions received via the web-site, when patients refer to the
Clinic‘s employees as well as those left at special log books that are kept with cashier-administrators. Registered userscan review the stages of their referral to the Clinic online.

The Clinic uses an electronic health record system (EHR) and has also launcheddigital archives solutions allowing it to store screening results obtained with the help of various medical devices (CTscan, MRI scan, X-ray machines, ultrasound and endoscopic equipment). Medicina JSC is implementing a smart clinicproject. This project is based on a Data Processing Center (DPC) designed in accordance with reliability, safety andfault-tolerance requirements. The modern data transmission network is intended for the transmission of large volumesof information and meets safety requirements stipulated by law. Smart operating rooms are a vivid example of how hitech technologies are implemented in the healthcare sector, f.e. an automatic anesthesia control system. Once asurgeon enters a smart operating room all the equipment is already adjusted according to his/her preferences, whichcannot but contribute to a successful result of any surgery. The smart clinic project underlies centralized managementover the engineering and IT infrastructure of the building. This is a pilot project that has no analogues in Russia.Atmosphere of comfort, care and friendliness. We do our best to make our patients feel comfortable. Care aboutpatients is the core of any our activity. Patients are met by friendly and caring employees that escort them around theClinic to the office they need, help to get the required documents prepared and to obtain a desired consultation. Itusually takes no more than 24 hours from the moment when the patient visits the doctor for the first time until themoment when he/she receives the results of his tests, examinations and doctor recommendations.

This is a uniquecharity project that unites representatives of the medical community, patients, medical institutions and bestorganizations of the country. This is a venue where charity providers interested in the development of the Russianhealthcare system and health workers needing help and support meet. It is charity providers, patients andrepresentatives of the medical society that influence the Foundation‘s decision on whom aid should be rendered on avoting basis.The basis of any charity project is people developing this project, who are not indifferent. Charity Foundation―Medical Fraternity‖ has been set up by Professor Grigory Roytberg. As a doctor he knows the problems of healthworkers from inside out; as the organizer of a health care company and the general manager of one of Russia‘s mostsuccessful private clinics he can transform general ―petty little things‖ into the powerful stream of support that canchange the situation in the Russian healthcare sector for the better.

Medicina JSC is a unified team. Success of each employee is a component of the success and prosperity of theentire Company. Medicina JSC has deserved the trust and recognition among its clientele thanks to the principles all itsemployees abide by.Medicina JSC’s General Ethics and Activity Principles Medicina JSC‘s professional activity is based on the following principles: applicable legislation of the Russian Federation, regulatory documents and standards of the Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation, Department of Health and State Sanitary and Epidemiological Supervising Body of Moscow and Moscow State Fund for Mandatory Medical Insurance that govern the activity of health institutions;
understanding of the civil and professional duty before the society, state and Russian citizens; improvement of corporate management and in-house control; absolute fulfillment of all the obligations and guaranteed high quality of services; full responsibility for the quality and results of our work; fair competition and active opposition to unfair players in the market of medical services. Medicina JSC does not accept in its activity: violations of applicable legislation, moral rules and business ethics; infringement of rights, lawful interests and dignity of shareholders, clients and partners and inflicting damage to Company‘s image.Medicina JSC Firm Style Medicina JSC has a unified standard style of all printed media and souvenirs making our Companyrecognizable, a standard procedure of service provision in all the departments and a regulated procedure of applyingthe firm logo and name of Medicina JSC. Business printed media of the Company‘s departments (forms, envelopes and personnel business cards) areproduced to a unified style using the officially registered symbols and color design. Medicina JSC‘s departments arenot allowed to make modifications to the firm logo and the unified form and style of the Company‘s business printedmedia. The design of the Company‘s logo and name on the advertising and souvenir media (pens, calendars,notebooks, leaflets, booklets, ads etc.) conforms to the officially registered reference of the firm logo and the fontstyle. Firm dress style is another component of our corporate culture which is of special importance for medics andcontact persons.Socio-Psychological Climate Medicina JSC‘s in-house communication standard is confidence and high mutual exactingness between ourstaff members, benevolent and practical criticism, freedom of expressing one‘s opinion when discussing matersimportant for the entire Company, managerial right to make decisions that are important for respective divisions,sufficient awareness of employees and satisfaction of being part of the team. The establishment of a good business climate in Medicina JSC favored by the employees‘ exact knowledge oftheir respective responsibility areas which excludes any possible conflicts arising thereupon. The open policy andtransparency of compensations further reinforces the favorable socio-psychological climate of Medicina JSC.Conflict of Interests Management Principles The main conflict management principle employed by Medicina JSC is to prevent a conflict or avoid itsaggravation. Should some conflict develop, our managers attempt to make use of it for the Company and encouragepractical criticism and proposals from employees. A conflict can be taken under control if employees have the will andexperience of such work. The Company manages possible conflicts using the conflict party functional separation method and internalrestructuring of the conflict situation. Conflicts are resolved using the ‗through confrontation to cooperation‘ approach(negotiations).Medicina JSC Employee Business Behavior Code It is a good practice in Medicina JSC to respect other colleagues regardless of their position. The Company‘sManagement is responsible to its personnel. The Company‘s Management builds its relationships with the personnelbased on the following fundamental principles: the Management observes the Labor Code and other laws regulating labor relationships with employees; the Management observes applicable occupational health and safety standards;
the Company does not apply any discriminating rules to employee hiring, compensation and promotion. All employees have equal career opportunities in accordance with their competence; the Management grants all the employees equal rights and opportunities in developing and expressing their capabilities; the Management consults employees on labor conditions and other issues affecting the Company‘s personnel; the rules relating to compensations, discounts, promotion and other labor conditions have been defined clearly and distinctly for all employees; the Management fulfills its obligations relating to making contributions to retirement funds; the Management has the right to enforce discipline among the employees by any lawful means including dismissal of employees in breach of discipline in accordance with the applicable legislation; the Management takes into account the opinion and personal values of employees; the Management builds its relationships with the employees based on collectiveness and cooperation principles.Medical Service Quality Management There are many definitions of what quality is, yet there‘s been no universal one. We believe that in whatconcerns medical activity quality should include the following two equivalent components: first, this is about every medical aspect such as necessary competence of doctors, low medical error risk, a system allowing timely identification and correction of situations bearing the threat of medical errors (e.g. mammary gland X-ray images are necessarily analyzed by two radiologists in order to avoid breast cancer omission), and a medical and economic standard compliance control system; second, these are deontological aspects, i.e. the patients‘ perception of medical aid, including its service component – this is what patients can evaluate on their own (being not specialists in medicine they cannot judge on the correctness of therapeutic approach). Furthermore, to ensure sufficient in-house business process quality control, Medicina JSC uses the followingprocedures: regulated in-house audit procedures, weekly managerial supervision, systematic checks of sanitary andepidemic control and medication expiry dates, personnel competency checks and monthly personnel work qualityevaluation. For outsourced processes Medicina JSC appoints the so-called ‗Process Owners‘ to bear responsibility fortendering, contract preparation and partner interaction and ensure necessary controls and contract obligationfulfillment. The management of such processes is documented.
Looking through patients’ eyesThe major problem on the way to excellence encountered by everyone who has ever worked in this field is to look atyour company through your customers‘ eyes, through your patients‘ eyes, in our case. We can improve in variousaspects of our activities. However, if our patients do not feel it, it means that we have either chosen the wrong strategyor the wrong tactics. For us to be confident that we have chosen the proper and effective way we have been constantlymonitoring our patients‘ satisfaction. A satisfaction review is carried out regularly. Moreover, we are doing our best toget rid of many negative moments and are being a success in this respect. During 20 years we asked our patientsquestions about the factors that determined their choice, studied the world‘s best health practice and improved ouractivities to ensure our patients the maximum level of safety and protection of their rights.
