The two countries will create a road map for cooperation. They approved collaboration to digitise health care and telemedicine and develop common standards for data exchange ensuring system interoperability to provide medical assistance using telemedicine technologies.

“We are convinced that digitisation is the basis for our further relations including infrastructure, personnel training and drug provision,” said Skvortsova.

She noted Russia’s medical organisations will be connected to the unified state medical system by the end of 2020.

“It will be integrated with central and regional medical information systems. The system will be linked to the procurement and drug tracking system. We will create 85 regional segments with a regional server. We will connect all medical organisations to the regional server. In total, 75,000 objects will be connected to the healthcare system,” she added.
