The volume of electronic data in medicine has increased significantly. Reformatting of the system is required
In two and a half years, the volume of data generated at the federal level has increased eightfold. <...> The flow of information in medical documents has increased significantly — Pavel Pugachev, Deputy Minister of Health of the Russian Federation.
A large amount of data is emerging. <...> Today, medicine <...> accounts for about 30% of all the different profile innovations that are being developed in the world. It is a very innovation-intensive field. <...> Trends are emerging in medicine today, such as patient-centred <...> and the so-called value-centred healthcare in which we focus on treatment that is most effective in the first place. And these trends will require a reformatting of the entire healthcare system, its regulators, its economic motivators — Vitaliy Omelyanovskiy, General Director, Center for Healthcare Quality Assessment and Control of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
When we start talking about the arrival of new technologies, whatever they may be, <...> and increase of the availability of these technologies, this dictates to us the need to collect data not based on clinical trials, which we are used to, <...> but when we launch technologies and assess their clinical effectiveness directly in the process of patients treatment. And this also generates a certain need for digitalization and the ability and need to work with the large amount of data that is being collected from these patients. <...> New orphan technologies and new drugs with poorly studied efficacy appear, and monitoring based on these data which, of course, are personalized. And there should be an assessment of this treatment — Vitaliy Omelyanovskiy, General Director, Center for Healthcare Quality Assessment and Control of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
