The Telemedicine’s Prospects In The Frame Of The Digitalization Of Healthcare

Abstract

The authors justify the positive transformations in the life of society based on digital solutions implemented on the platform type in the article. The importance of the quality and life expectancy of the population for the competitive parameters of socio-economic systems, which confirmed by the validation of human capital in the ratings of international competitiveness or innovative development of regions, is emphasized. This underscores the demand for the application of digital solutions in healthcare. The article examines examples of the active and successful use of telemedicine solutions in the interaction with patients and physicians in foreign practice. This fact has actualised the study of the prospects of telemedicine in the commercial medical segment as part of the digitalization of healthcare in Russia. The interest in the commercial medicine segment is justified by the fact that the number of commercial medical organizations in the country has grown in recent years and there has been an increase in public confidence in the medical services they provide. An analysis of the results of a large-scale empirical study demonstrating the attitudes of market practitioners towards the prospects of telemedicine determines the barriers to its full deployment. They relate to legislation, insensitivity of the population and resistance of medical personnel. The difficulties and contradictions noted addressed with the help of expert professional opinion and established international experience.
