Summary. Background. In the past, the problem of monitoring of quality of medical care for military servicemen was tackled with by many native researchers and also by organs for managing of public health. But for a long time only extensive measures for the problem of quality of medical care were being implemented, mainly on the way of expanding the number of medical staff, quantity and seize of medical establishments.

Certain attempts of slightly more successful controlling quality of medical care were made on the way of exclusive use of economic techniques, namely through internal re-distribution of budget resources between various METPs (medical establishment for treatment and prevention).

Improved approaches to evaluation and investigation into operation of METP were also supposed to ameliorate quality of medical care. Special forms and questionnaires had been designed along incredible number of items for investigating into therapeutic and diagnostic measures in METPs.

The drawback of the last approach was little likelihood of controlling quality of medical care to the benefit of every single patient.

Statistical, expertise-based, comprehensive (systemic) techniques for the evaluation of the process of controlling quality of medical care were implemented.
