Smarteka’s award-winning healthcare practices presented at Orgzdrav 2022

Winners of the best healthcare practices competition held by the Higher School of Healthcare Organization and Management on ASI’s Smarteka platform took part at the 10th International Congress “Orgzdrav-2022: Effective Management in Healthcare”. The participants from the Sverdlovsk region and the Republic of Tatarstan presented their cases at the Industry Leaders session.

“We received a total of more than 300 applications from 70 Russian regions. 13 of the projects were named the winners. It is very good that the Congress is attended not only by regional healthcare ministries and government agencies with which we are constantly interacting, but also by representatives of private clinics. In addition, IT providers for the healthcare sector shared their excellent approaches,” Ilya Mamykin, Director, Center for Good Practices, ASI, said. 

In total, four award-winning projects were presented at the Forum. The Sverdlovsk Automated Information System of Regional Obstetric Monitoring, which won the first place award in the Stationary Medical Care category, was presented by Nikolay Ankudinov, Medical Director of Incordmed, LLC.

“Processes of maintaining medical records, assessment of obstetric risks, a framework for supporting clinical solutions based on identified risks, creation of common digital space and telemedicine capabilities are the risks that exist in obstetrics. Our program assesses them solely in an automated manner without a doctor. Based on these risks, we develop a pregnancy-related tactics and, accordingly, prevent potential complications,” Nikolay Ankudinov commented.

Another Sverdlovsk project is ONCOR, a regional centralized healthcare system presented by Sergey Efremov, Director of BusinessComputer, LLC. He noted that development of an oncology service requires automation of the region as a whole, rather than individual medical systems. ONCOR aggregates all identification, diagnosis, treatment and in-patient observation data. After that, the system creates a regional database of patients and ensures interaction among all institutions and organizations that provide aid to cancer patients.

Linar Garifullin, CEO of Medmarket Group from the Republic of Tatarstan, shared his experience in creating an automated work station known as the Mobile Doctor Assistant. He says that today healthcare institutions apply automation in one way or another; however, it is not enough for home calls.

“Over a year, there were about 3.5 million house calls in the republic. This is virtually a gray area when we do not understand how doctors communicate with their patients and what is happening there. We decided to automate this process,” Linar Garifullin said.

According to him, after a call is received via the software, the system will generate a patient record to be sent to the receptionist to decide who is responsible for the call. The selected doctor receives a previously filled out request with all patient data, which excludes errors. The program also contains clinical recommendations for treatment, which would be selected by the doctor from the proposed list, with an automatically created prescription.

Vitaly Soloviev, Director General of RADLOGICS RUS, LLC, spoke about the RADLogics platform for automated processing of radiological images. He said that RADLOGICS RUS was the world’s first-ever company to develop a solution for identifying coronavirus infection on CT images. This solution is also applicable to large-scale lung cancer screening.

“As a result, it has reduced the load on doctors. Tatarstan demonstrated high rates in the fight against the pandemic and tested the AI solutions completely from scratch. We have also collected statistics proving that the time spent by radiologists can be reduced by 30%,” Vitaly Soloviev said.

All the award-winning practices are highlighted on the Smarteka platform and are available for replication.
