According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is still the leading cause of death worldwide: there is no other COD that kills as many people every year as CVD. According to the Russian Healthcare Ministry, in January - December 2019, CVD mortality declined by 1%, while the pandemic provoked an even stronger negative trend.
Issues for discussion:
• When can we expect the launch of a vertically integrated medical information system, and how can it help change the situation?
• First year results of measures for outpatient drug provision after acute cardiovascular events. Will the project be scaled?
• What solutions can help reduce the lag behind the planned dynamics?
