Director of by the Research Institute of Health Care and Medical Management of the Moscow City Department of Health Care Elena Aksenova:

The main focus of discussion at the forum is on methodological aspects, the expert position and scientific justification of nascent and already ongoing projects in the field of medicine. It is worth noting that Moscow's health care system has changed its standing for the better in all ratings over the past 10 years, and Moscow itself as one of the largest cities in the world has become objectively recognisable. In the era of the spread of a new coronavirus infection, the resilience and reliability of Moscows health care system made it possible to keep the situation under control, contain the onslaught of the pandemic and prevent high mortality rates.

Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Health Organization assessed the risks of a new coronavirus infection and organised work to analyze and select the most successful measures to combat the pandemic and develop effective mechanisms to restore the resilience of health systems.

Special Representative of the World Health Organisation (WHO)
in Russia Melita Vuinovich: 

During the pandemic, major resources are devoted to helping patients with Covid-19, often at the expense of other areas including rehabilitation, diagnosis, dentistry and family planning. For ten months now, the global community has been in the midst of a pandemic. We need to collect and accumulate international experience, use it to formulate sound management decisions and implement them in national health care systems, which will make it possible not only to combat the coronavirus infection successfully, but also to maintain the volume of medical care in all key areas.

World Bank's Country Director for the Russian Federation Renaud Seligmann recalled that the World Bank, in partnership with the Research Institute of Health Care and Medical Management of the Moscow City Department of Health Care, is involved in a large-scale cross-country project to study the impact of coronavirus on accelerating the adoption and use of digital technologies, including telemedicine. The main goal of the project is to make a scientific contribution to global health care in terms of its digital transformation. 

World Bank's Country Director for the Russian Federation Renaud Seligmann: 

The Moscow government quickly developed a set of measures to contain the spread of Covid-19, and we are seeing their impact. The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the introduction of innovative technologies into the real economy, and health care is leading the way. During the past year, global health systems have demonstrated effective examples of innovation, and Moscow is one of the global leaders in this area. The use of artificial intelligence and telemedicine are just some examples of successful practices.

The two-day forum included 32 sections in different medical areas presented by management and methodological departments of the Department of Health of the City of Moscow. In their speeches, clinicians, scientists, and managers shared their experience in the difficult conditions associated with the spread of Covid-19.

Denis Protsenko, Chief Freelance Specialist in Anaesthesiology and Resuscitation of the Moscow City Department of Health Care and Chief Physician of City Clinical Hospital No.40 highlighted the issues of re-profiling the anaesthesiology and resuscitation services during the pandemic, approaches to treatment of patients with Covid-19 and new technologies. According to Denis Protsenko, the reprofiling required the use of new architectural solutions, continuous team training, and constant updating of internal protocols and scripts for each clinic. The main causes of 'early' mortality in patients with Covid-19 are thromboembolic complications. In this situation, monitoring the effectiveness of anticoagulant therapy becomes very important. A significant role during the pandemic was played by the establishment of an advisory centre on the basis of City Clinical Hospital No 40.

Director of by the Research Institute of Health Care and Medical Management of the Moscow City Department of Health Care Elena Aksenova outlined the communication programmes, which the Institute developed during the pandemic. All of them can be used in the post-pandemic period as well. According to Elena Aksenova, all the communication programmes that were designed and implemented in 2020 are digital. For example, organisational and methodological departments of the Moscow City Department of Health Care answer questions from the public in the "Virtual Doctor's Office" on the niioz.ru website. A digital platform "Day Hospital 2.0" has been developed, which contains personal digital offices for each patient. The platform allows children to be rehabilitated at home, the parents are actually partners with the doctors. There is also a platform niioz.ru/covid-19/, which collects information from reliable foreign sources every day, translated into Russian and structured for easy retrieval.

The two-day forum was concluded with the traditional summing up of the final results of the Russian Singing Doctors 2020 competition with the participation of talented doctors, nurses, and entire teams of clinics from various Russian cities
