International Scientific Cooperation as a Tool for e-Health Promotion


Objectives: Nowadays trends in high-tech implementation is connected with introduction of value-oriented preventive medicine. This approach is seen as a tool to modernize the lifestyle with affordable funding. Method: The concept of full cycle integrated project “Development of Distant Medical Care” is discussed to be implemented in Russia within upcoming 10 years. Findings: For Russian Federation the idea of a so called full cycle integrated project was proposed. The project aims at value-based medical care organized with the help of biosensors implementation, and consists of 3 stages: the usage of foreign sensors and devices (till 2016); the formation of the Russian branch of the telemedicine sector (2016-2020); the incorporation of e-Health into the existing medical industry in the Russian Federation (after 2020). The main idea of e-Health development is neither a device, nor patients themselves, but rather the medical service as a whole. Main challenges associated with this issue are concerned. It is shown that international collaboration and acceptance of successful practices is proved to be absolutely necessary to fulfill the goal of the value-based healthcare. Telemedicine is seen as a part of arising e-Infrastructure – the organization and formation of innovative infrastructure based on digitalization. Improvements: Horizon 2020 program is shown to be a probable tool to accomplish the discussed purpose. Adoption of the existing successful approaches could contribute a lot for socio-economic development.
