<![CDATA[NO SANCTIONS FOR CONTINUOUS VIOLATION OF LAWS]]>http://www.cci.ba/news/2/42/620.htmlhttp://www.cci.ba/news/2/42/620.htmlTue, 19 Jan 2021

At a press conference in Banja Luka, Centers for civic initiatives (CCI) presented today the findings of the Analysis of audit reports of local self-government units in Republika Srpska. 

Since its establishment, the Head service for Republika Srpska public sector audit has audited all 64 units of local self-government, and it did it at least three times. In the observed period of 10 years, 2010-2019, 239 financial audit reports of local self-government units were published, and only 3% of audited units received a “positive opinion”, which is the most critical information. 73% of municipalities/cities that received a reserved opinion have spent 1.062.927.912 BAM or  80% of total funds of all local units, whereas 24% of units that received a “negative opinion“ have spent 206.384.994 BAM. Local self-government units that received two consecutive negative opinions on their financial report are: Gacko, Istočni Stari Grad, Kostajnica, Oštra Luka, Ribnik, Trnovo and Ugljevik. On this occasion, the CCI point to the need for local parliaments, at least once a year, to adopt information on the implementation of the Action Plan to address the identified irregularities, through the implementation of recommendations.

<![CDATA[ CONTEMPORARY INFORMATION SYSTEMS ASSIST IN PREVENTING CORRUPTION Zenica Cantonal Hospital Introduces an Innovative Patient Wait List Software ]]>http://www.cci.ba/news/2/42/619.htmlhttp://www.cci.ba/news/2/42/619.htmlTue, 22 Dec 2020

 An innovative information system for transparent patient waitlists has been presented today in Zenica by the Centres for Civic Initiatives (CCI) and representatives of the Zenica Cantonal Hospital. The system was created and applied in the Cantonal Hospital as part of the Project for Combating and Preventing Corruption in Healthcare implemented by Transparency International in Bosnia and Herzegovina (TI BiH) and the Centres for Civic Initiatives (CCI) with the financial support from the European Union.

Patients, users of healthcare services most often do not understand the internal procedures that the healthcare institutions use to create the waiting lists or their capacities or priorities. Having no understanding of how these lists are formed and no insight in hospital waiting lists can lead to patients' distrust in the public healthcare system and patients’ dissatisfaction with the healthcare services. On the other hand, non-transparent process and its lack of definition opens the door for the staff responsible for creating the waiting lists to approach to this problem in an unjust and inappropriate manner. In some cases, this opens the door to corruption.

Centri Civilnih Inicijativa (CCI) vas pozivaju na press konferenciju, koja će se održati u Zenici, 22.12.2020. godine (utorak), s početkom u 12:00 sati u prostorijama Hotela Dubrovnik (Školska 10).

Press konferencija se organizuje povodom predstavljanja inovativnog informacionog sistema za transparetne liste čekanja pacijenata koji je uveden u Kantonalnoj bolnici Zenica.

Smanjuje se mogućnost za koruptivne radnje prilikom zakazivanja pacijenata i "ubacivanje preko reda". Ovaj pozitivan primjer biće predložen i drugim zdravstvenim ustanovama.

Navedena aktivnost se realizuje u okviru Projekta sprečavanja i borbe protiv korupcije u zdravstvu koga provode Transparency interantional Bosne i Hercegovine (TI BiH) i Centri civilnih inicijativa (CCI), uz finansijku podršku EU.
