Context: Under these conditions innovative focus of the national health care system at all levels and new approaches to encourage innovation in medical organizations, taking into account the characteristics of their activities and needs of the population, become the urgent tasks

Aims: to study the factors constraining the introduction of new medical technologies in the health care system of Kazakhstan, and to find ways of improving innovation activity in Kazakhstan.

Settings and Design: The article presents the results of the reasons that restrain the activity of development and implementation of innovation, the types of innovative technologies and their demand in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Methods and Material: online survey of health professionals on innovation in the Republic of Kazakhstan

Statistical analysis used: statistical analysis using the SPSS 16. In the analysis we have used descriptive statistics, factor analysis, correlation and multivariate analysis of variance.

Results: It was found that in the majority of cases (62.4%), innovations were borrowed (imported from abroad), and they have mostly (63.3%) been introduced into clinical medicine by health care practitioners (66.9%), while the lowest percentage of innovative activity in the country (22.8%) was found among the specialists holding scientific and academic degrees, as well as their participation in the research.

Conclusions: The factor analysis or principal components analysis suggests that the main reasons for the low innovation activity in the Republic of Kazakhstan is a lack of awareness of experts about the latest achievements of science, lack of trained personnel and insufficient target financing of innovation in health care.
