Over the two years of the fight against the pandemic, telemedicine in Moscow has proven its effectiveness and made it possible to solve two problems: to ensure constant monitoring of the patient’s condition, as well as to relieve field clinic services and prevent system overload.

The telemedicine center has been operating since March 2020 around the clock, seven days a week. Today, for patients with COVID-19 who are being treated at home, almost 200 doctors conduct about 2.7 thousand consultations daily, and since the beginning of the pandemic, the telemedicine center has performed more than 1.8 million such remote appointments.

The center’s specialists conduct medical monitoring of participants in post-registration trials of vaccines against coronavirus, and in the warm season they remotely consulted visitors to the Healthy Moscow pavilions, who found any deviations during the medical examination. The telemedicine center also monitors the condition of patients with confirmed COVID-19 undergoing treatment at home, and patients with coronavirus from risk groups: pregnant women, children and adults with chronic diseases and undergoing innovative treatment with monoclonal virus-neutralizing antibodies.
