Updating the system of personnel training and retraining, modernization of medical services, and the creation of a system of disease prevention using digital technology and artificial intelligence
We have to take into account the Internet of Things, which is actively becoming one of the key components in all our life in general and in healthcare in particular. We have to understand that biotechnology, gene therapy, and a number of other trends are emerging. Just the day before yesterday the prime minister [of the Russian Federation - Ed.] made a decision to expand neonatal screening for a number of diseases. More and more subtle technologies are coming into our lives, it is all being digitized and put into a kind of human life path from birth to old age — Mikhail Murashko, Minister of Health of the Russian Federation.
The first [conclusion after the pandemic - Ed.] is to increase investment in the workforce. If a society is unhealthy, it affects other factors. Russia invests in education, in the development of competencies, in the retention of this personnel to avoid brain drain. Russia is investing to get talent to come here and stay here, but it still faces a shortage of doctors and nurses. So, we have to bet on artificial intelligence to shift some of the functions to robots — Hans Henri P. Kluge, Regional Director for Europe, World Health Organization.
As for the [health care system itself - Ed.], Covid has taught us to think a little differently, hospitals have to respond to mobile repurposing. We have to be more mobile. Occupational medicine is where the real prevention lies, because who knows the employee better than the factory doctor? We have really made serious strides in home care <...>. And medical colleagues must unite, instantly share experience and knowledge, because no one gets sick individually anymore, everyone gets sick across the borders — Dmitry Morozov, Deputy, Chairman of the Health Protection Committee, State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.
What is the advantage of digitalization today? It is a qualitative leap in health care — Olga Golodets, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board, Sberbank.
