Artificial intelligence, computer vision, new equipment. The development of the Moscow healthcare system continues despite the pandemic. The main achievements of metropolitan medicine in recent years are in four significant digits.
In the capital, the situation with the spread of coronavirus infection has deteriorated sharply. Moscow hospitals will again be redesigned to help patients with COVID-19, open CT centers, and mobilize vaccination points. Despite these extreme conditions, Moscow’s healthcare system continues to function steadily. Effective help under enormous workloads has been made possible by the work done in recent years. The capital is modernizing the ambulance system and polyclinics, introducing advanced technologies, and increasing the volume of high-tech care.
More than two million shots …
… analyzed using artificial intelligence-based computer vision algorithms. The technology marks the areas of possible pathologies with color cues and sorts the images according to the urgency of the necessary treatment. Doctors can listen to prompts, but the doctor always has the last word.
The service helped to reduce the time spent on describing studies by an average of 30 percent. So, in emergency situations, the doctor who leads the patient can receive a response from the radiologist within five minutes after the examination. This allows you to quickly make the correct diagnosis and promptly begin treatment. So far, the technology is helping to identify lung and breast cancers, COVID-19 and various lung pathologies. Now they are preparing and testing services for determining other diseases.
Increased sevenfold …
… The number of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, four times the number of computed tomography (CT) scans.
In addition, PET / CT, robotic surgeries, and immune therapy are now available free of charge under the compulsory health insurance policy.
So, the most rare proton therapy is carried out on the basis of the Sergei Berezin Medical Institute. Last year here treated 44 patients (in 2019 – 39 patients).
11 hereditary diseases …
… Doing research on newborns. This allows you to start treatment on time and reduce the risk of disability in the future. Mass screening includes diseases that result from mutations in the genetic structure of a cell. Methods of effective treatment have been developed for such diseases.
In addition, a center for the treatment of cerebrovascular pathology (acute disorders of cerebral circulation) and a reference center for congenital hereditary diseases, genetic abnormalities, orphan and other rare diseases operate in the capital.
137 city polyclinics …
… they plan to reconstruct new Moscow standardby the end of 2024. In addition, 30 new ones will be built by this time.
The new Moscow standard for polyclinics presupposes the installation of modern equipment, well-thought-out logistics and comfortable conditions for patients and staff. The most visited offices are located on the ground floors, patients are waiting for an appointment in large rooms, and doctors have the opportunity to spend their free time in cozy lounges. Residents can get to a narrow specialist in their district polyclinic, as well as do many examinations there.
In 2020–2021, 15 polyclinic buildings were reconstructed. Work is underway in another 60 buildings.
