Digital Technologies in the Primary Healthcare Service: A Factor in Saving People’s Lives

17 Jun , 10:00–11:15
Pavilion F, Healthy Life Area

Primary healthcare needs to become more productive to achieve Russia’s national goal of increasing life expectancy. The universal introduction of information technologies, monitoring doctor’s appointments, and the transition to electronic document management should help improve the efficiency of medical organizations that provide primary healthcare and the availability of medical care. Additional measures need to be taken today to address the problem of uneven digitalization throughout the industry, which is further complicated by the digital divide between Russia’s regions. With the digital transformation of the healthcare sector, there is a separate segment that has not been covered by the total computerization of the pre-medical healthcare system (health centres, village first aid stations, and prevention centres). Modern digital and technological approaches to organizing the work of the pre-medical primary healthcare system will ensure constant monitoring of changes in each person’s health parameters during preventive medical examinations, and big data can help obtain information about the population’s health. What are the top priorities in the digitalization of primary healthcare right now? How does the development and introduction of modern automated diagnostic systems and information support programmes improve the availability and quality of primary healthcare? What modern smart information aids exist for primary healthcare professionals working in remote areas and at companies and educational organizations?
