MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The possibilities of telemedicine began to be used by the doctors of KTB-1 and the medical road train of the Main Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in the Krasnoyarsk Territory to make joint decisions on the diagnosis and treatment of citizens who applied to the mobile clinic.
Doctors of the medical road train regularly go on business trips to carry out medical and diagnostic measures and provide medical assistance to convicts, employees of the GUFSIN units, as well as local residents.
Currently, the road train is located in the city of Minusinsk. Surgeons and therapists contacted colleagues on the treatment and hospitalization of convicted patients with various diseases of the musculoskeletal system and internal organs.
Four convicts received specialist consultations. All patients received the necessary diagnostic and treatment appointments.
It should be noted that the use of telemedicine capabilities allows penitentiary doctors to communicate with colleagues from leading clinics in Krasnoyarsk to choose tactics for managing patients with complex clinical cases.
