KEY CONCLUSIONS
Healthcare needs to be digitalized

The pandemic has pushed us towards digitalization. The digitalization began in 2011 with the concept of a digital outline in healthcare, but it was the last year that showed how effectively this digitalization should work so that we make management decisions related to fighting the coronavirus in a timely manner — Pavel Pugachev, Deputy Minister of Health of the Russian Federation.

Artificial intelligence and digital transformation will help us solve this problem [shortage of staff, Ed.], so that we can focus on the patient and free doctors from routine tasks — Claire Bloomfield, Chief Executive Officer, National Consortium for Intelligent Medical Imaging, University of Oxford.

Today we are <…> talking about digital twins. I believe that they will become real in five years. Currently, in our opinion, the creation of digital twins is a technological breakthrough in healthcare, given that our healthcare industry is fast-growing. <…> For now, this all seems real, but we need to work and finance a lot — Petr Glybochko, Rector, I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.

Inconsistent healthcare development in regions

Those who have progressed <…> should pass on best practices and support those who currently lag behind in terms of digitalization. We have necessary tools, federal projects, financing allocated to regions by the Ministry of Health for digitalization — Pavel Pugachev, Deputy Minister of Health of the Russian Federation.

It [digitalization, Ed.] is currently more needed there [in regions, Ed.], because the shortage of staff is huge — Andrey Kaprin, Director, Federal State Budgetary Institution National Medical Research Radiological Centre of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.

ISSUES
Lack of a unified structure and methodological regulation

In fact, comprehensive digitalization will change the whole system, and it is not easy. It will lead to substantial organizational transformations, and we are not always ready for them, we do not always realize that they are necessary, but otherwise there will be no real effect — Marina Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Government of Moscow for Social Development .

The most important task of the state and health authorities, such as the ministry, is regulation that should, first of all, create conditions and opportunities — Pavel Pugachev, Deputy Minister of Health of the Russian Federation.

To get structured data, we need to enter them to unified structured fields of unified reference books. And here we face the issue of <…> inadequacy and fragmentary nature of current methodological regulation in the industry — Marina Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Government of Moscow for Social Development .

Speaking of digitalization, I would say that in order to succeed <…> we need to implement it in a cohesive way in education, in healthcare practices, and we should not forget about science — Petr Glybochko, Rector, I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.

Challenges of digital transition, unpreparedness on the part of technologies and people

Everyone has digital products, but when you go to an outpatient clinic, you still have a paper medical record, a paper medical referral, registers. The mindset is highly inert. Unless health care managers create this environment, unless they systematically work on changing the mindset of doctors, helping them to understand that they benefit rather than suffer from digitalization, it will take a very long time — Marina Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Government of Moscow for Social Development .

Dear colleagues, electronic patient records have sunk into oblivion, we need to have electronic health records. We are still discussing how we are going to fill them out, if it is convenient or not. It is. Today we are talking about large databases. But do our doctors have skills to use them? <…> They need to start learning to deal with them today, at universities — Petr Glybochko, Rector, I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.

SOLUTIONS
Structuring and development of common healthcare principles

We need to establish the level of minimal services, the level of requirements, standards of interaction between medical organizations, so that a resident of Russia could get a high-quality and timely medical care in any region — Pavel Pugachev, Deputy Minister of Health of the Russian Federation.

As a production company, we currently see a trend, and it is global: we need to continue checking up a large number of non-infectious patients. <…> For that, we need to create a rapid diagnostics centre, this is a digital scalable and very flexible solution that can be used or applied both at one clinic and a network of clinics. What is a rapid diagnostics centre? First of all, it is advanced diagnostic equipment, a control centre <...> it is efficient routing of patients. <...> In addition, these are digital solutions that help to quickly collect, analyze and store patient data — Elena Legezina, General Director, GE Healthcare Russia and CIS.

Shifting focus from medical services to patients

Only simultaneous rethinking and restructuring of all processes and understanding that it is patient who is central, not a service <…> can lead us to higher efficiency — Marina Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Government of Moscow for Social Development .

Of course, focus should be on the patient <…> they are central. The best way is to support ethical use of data. We need to provide guarantees that we are not just transparent, but we also can be trusted — Claire Bloomfield, Chief Executive Officer, National Consortium for Intelligent Medical Imaging, University of Oxford.

It is impossible to develop digitalization separately, outside a comprehensive approach to medicine and healthcare. We believe that current healthcare problems, which are being successfully solved, should be considered from the point of view of a patient-centered approach and personalized medicine — Igor Filippov, Director of the Direction "Oncology".
