Abstract. The health system faces a number of economic, financial and human resource challenges. It is especially important to start working to eliminate the current gaps today, when Russian President Vladimir Putin noted the main problems of today’s health care system: reducing the availability of primary health care in the regions, the shortage of medical specialists and insufficient drug supply. This is also imposed by the investment hunger in the framework of solving the strategic tasks set by the leadership of modern Russia. The institute of public-private partnership allows to attract private sector funds to solve problems at the national level. At this stage, the author analyzed a large number of foreign and domestic studies, which are at the intersection of Economics and medicine, to find the optimal solution to the search for an investment resource for the implementation of tasks in the field of medicine. The purpose of the study: to analyze the possibility of using public-private partnership tools in the modern health care system. Research methods: modeling of various variants of interaction between the state and business in the framework of projects in the health care system. The study is based on the definition of the main elements of building a model of organization of the health care system and rehabilitation medicine on the basis of the introduction of public-private partnership mechanisms in order to increase the investment attractiveness of health care institutions. The results of the study: in the course of scientific work, reference indicators that affect the willingness of the private sector to invest in the health care system are identified. In the framework of the model, the author considered the possible risks of attracting private funds to medicine against the background of limited opportunities for budgets of all levels to Finance the unfavorable situation of many health care institutions. In conclusion, the author found that the use of public – private partnership in the public health system has many positive effects that bring benefits to both parties to the agreement. Based on the results obtained in the scientific article, the author made a number of recommendations on attracting private investment in the field of health care.
