The company Globosphere Russia engaged in the development of electronic medical records, conducted a study among 2,500 people above 18 years from 8 cities of Russia. The aim of this work was to find out how Russians today use medical services and how often resort to existing medical online services.
The majority of Russians do not store data about your health obtained through surveys (71%). Collect and store such information only 29% of respondents, most of them in paper form. Moscow residents most often answer that scan the information or keep it in the email. According to Director of marketing Globosphere Russia Dmitry Krupsky, the main problem of storage of medinformatix in paper format and even in the form of static files is that it is very difficult to organize and analyze. “The task of the medical services of the future — not just to accumulate and accumulate information, but also to find correlation between different indicators to noted deviations from the norm, which should be checked in consultation with a doctor,” said Krupski.
Despite all the attention to telemedicine, 93% of respondents have never used remote consultations over the last year. Of those who communicated with doctors through audio or video, 65% did so more than two times, 22% three or four times.
