The largest event in Russia dedicated to digital technologies in healthcare, brought together representatives of 10 countries of the world: key specialists and leaders of the biometric and information technology market, developers and investors, doctors of all fields. The task of the Forum, held at the First Moscow State Medical University. Sechenov - to stimulate the development of the latest technologies and their implementation in medical institutions and research laboratories in Russia.
In the world, the introduction of digital technologies for information processing in medicine and healthcare is occurring rapidly. The accumulation and use of BigData opens up new opportunities both for the development of preventive personalized medicine and for making management decisions. Today, many countries and international organizations operate numerous telemedicine projects, and WHO is developing the idea of creating a global telecommunications network in medicine.
As the director of the Institute of Digital Medicine of Sechenov University Georgy Lebedev noted at the opening of the Forum, digitalization and globalization are new trends that shape the image of the future medical education system. And today Russia is building digital health care based on three principles. This is the organization of medical care by centralizing all data in digital form and using artificial intelligence methods for their processing, as well as ensuring communication of all participants in the process, including remote health monitoring.
According to the General Director of the N.M. Pirogov Oleg Karpov, today digital medicine is in demand by patients, provided with many technologies, but not always ready-made solutions, systems for making medical decisions. “Medicine is the most conservative industry, but we must move forward in order not to be late with the digital transformation of the industry. We have to go from a digital clinic to a smart clinic,”he said.
The Forum participants will discuss the possibilities of integrating artificial intelligence, digital therapy, telemedicine and other innovative areas into the healthcare system of our country, the applicability of artificial intelligence in the realities of Russian telemedicine. Experts will answer the questions: will the global introduction of artificial intelligence massively increase the accuracy of diagnostics and make life easier for patients, what technologies really help in treatment, will the diagnostic system be available to everyone? Experts from Germany, South Korea and other countries that are actively developing innovative technologies will share their experience of introducing digital techniques in medicine.
The Forum program includes a number of thematic sessions, including "Active Longevity", "Medicine in the Information Space", "Investments in Digital Medicine", "Pharmaceutical Market Innovations", "Application of Digital Methods in Oncology", "Telemedicine and E-Health". The Forum will conclude with a presentation of digital medical startups: developers will present ready-made medical solutions directly to their target audience - healthcare investors.
