The Roscongress Foundations Healthy Life Area has opened at the venue of the V Eastern Economic Forum taking place on 46 September in Vladivostok. The project is being integrated in to EEF for the first time.
«Health issues are a priority in any part of the country but healthcare is of particularly importance in the Far East owing to its vast expanses, uneven population distribution, specific living conditions, complex transport infrastructure and its climate and geographical specifics. In this connection, we focus particularly on correct territorial planning of medical care, taking account of transport accessibility, development of medical aviation and mobile medical care», noted Russian Federation Minister of Health Veronika Skvortsova at the booths opening.
«Today we are opening the Healthy Life Area at EEF. This is an important subject for the Russian economy and I am sure we will continue supporting it. The Far East has its own specifics and we will talk about this at all the EEF events and meetings», Roscongress Foundation Director Alexander Stuglev stressed.
Within the area, events are planned as part of the Healthy Life programme. In particular, EEF 2019 will see a new format for the business programme of the platform: speeches by a cardiologist, a cardiovascular surgeon, the head doctor of the SMART CheckUp clinic Alexey Utin on the topic «100 Years of Life: Myth or Reality?», and the founder of the Big Heart Charitable Foundation Olga Sergeenko on «Why cancer isnt a death sentence. Personal victory story».
High-tech healthcare projects for improving and increasing the peoples healthy life expectancy will also be presented. For instance, a new digital primary healthcare format called «Smart mini-clinic» will be presented. It combines offline and online examination by medical device involving narrow specialists from remote partner clinics. The given format cuts the cost of seeing patients, expands the medical functional compared to a traditional polyclinic and offers a solution to the problem of the shortage of accessible good primary healthcare.
Visitor to Healthy Life Area can take a DNA test in order to receive individual recommendations for their diet, exercise and cosmetic procedures, undergo cardio-vascular screening to identify heart attack and stroke risks, find out their biological age and visit a healthy food bar. In the rest zone, visitors may try out the Muse device, which transfer in real time the processes taking place in the brain during meditation.
In addition, the Area will host co-operation agreement signing ceremonies. In particular, on 5 September the signing is planned of a memorandum of mutual understanding on establishing in Russia a state-of-the-art ion therapy centre between FGBU NMITs of radiology of the Ministry of Health of Russia, International Medical Consulting Company LLC and the Japanese company Medical Tourism Japan.
The V Eastern Economic Forum is focusing particularly on healthcare. The business programme includes discussions on, for example, the specifics of providing healthcare in remote areas, introduction of new technologies in healthcare and biological security, plus public health programmes in the Far East.
