We will tell you how the introduction of digital technologies made it possible to organize assistance to Muscovites during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The introduction of digital technologies helped Moscow to cope with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. About the created services and applied solutions in my blog said Sergei Sobyanin.
The high level of penetration of information technologies in Moscow made it possible to create a single digital platform in the shortest possible time. She ensured the continuity and continuity of patient management at all stages. Today, a single digital platform covers not only those infected with coronavirus, but also their contacts, people who have been vaccinated, as well as those who have an immune status.
The digital platform is based on a single laboratory service. All research results immediately fall into the electronic medical record, which means they become available to both the doctor and the patient.
Muscovites received access to the electronic medical record in early 2020. It stores the results of analyzes and instrumental studies, data on doctors’ appointments, ambulance calls and other medical information.
For doctors, an electronic medical record made it easier to collect anamnesis. They can devote more time to the patient himself and to communicate with him. The doctor sees the entire medical history: specialist consultations, diagnostic tests, appointment history and much more.
The next key element of a unified digital platform is a unified digital register of cases. It provides personalized accounting, routing and patient management. The register is available in real time to all parts of the healthcare system. In the shortest possible time, an epidemiological investigation system was created to search for contact persons.
In addition, telemedicine technologies have been introduced in the capital. In the spring of 2020, a telemedicine center was launched specifically for COVID-19 patients who are being treated at home. Its employees conduct remote consultations, assess the patient’s condition, give recommendations and can adjust the treatment. Such remote monitoring significantly reduces the burden on the medical system, while the quality of medical care remains at a high level.
A unified database of COVID-19 patients, formed in digital format during the pandemic, provided unprecedented opportunities for analyzing the situation. This made it possible to create, together with private business, a number of digital services using artificial intelligence, ranging from computer vision technologies for describing images, ending with medical decision support systems.
