Experts of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development visited the Odessa Regional Telemedicine Center
The main topic of discussion was the introduction of telemedicine technologies in Ukraine.
During the meeting, the head of the Odessa Telemedicine Center, Artem Lyashenko, conducted an excursion for foreign guests, during which he told experts about the achievements of the center, as well as the difficulties that telemedicine faces in Ukraine as a whole and in the Odessa region in particular.
The bank’s specialists were interested in the means by which the telemedicine solution is implemented, the number of online consultations and doctors involved, and the safety of patients’ personal data.
Also, foreign guests were interested in software development conducted by the Odessa Telemedicine Center, which are designed to facilitate and accelerate the work of the electronic medical system. The guests also talked with doctors who are already helping their patients throughout the Odessa region, without leaving their office.
The meeting resulted in a discussion of possible cooperation in order to accelerate and optimize the development of telemedicine in Ukraine.
In the end, I want to say that the meeting of such a high level took place in a surprisingly friendly atmosphere. The guests were satisfied with the tour and, I want to believe, will soon assist in the development, so important for our country, of the industry.
