By 2023, the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation intends to extend the AI-system for supporting medical decision-making to half of the medical institutions in the country, according to the ministry’s roadmap to digital transformation. The total cost of the program is estimated at $34.1 million (2.5 billion rubles).
For the system to work, a unified medical database will be needed, which will contain the results of studies and analyzes. Over the next two years, half of all medical institutions will be connected to it.
The program will also create 90 new innovative products to accelerate diagnostics and predictive analytics. Until the completion of the transformation, the ministry intends to develop digital services of public medical institutions, increase the number of patients through the portal of public services, including appointments with a doctor, and also connect AI to making medical decisions.
