2017 № 8 Telemedicine: dreams and realities
The adoption of the Federal law directly affecting telemedicine was expected for a long time. So the law has generated great interest in the medical community. However, a large number of evaluations of the new law is not accompanied by serious analysis. Meanwhile, despite the apparent «breakthrough» of the right regulation of telemedicine, the possibilities of practical use of telemedicine technologies remain very limited. This is due to the legal boundaries of the use of telemedicine technologies, and organizational and financial. This article discusses these and other issues related to the practical aspects of using telemedicine

2019 № 8 Reference center of radiology: justification and concept
The situation in radiology (intensive growth of infrastructure against the background of organizational, methodical
and managerial problems) requires a new system approach to organization and management. The concept of radiology
reference center as a structure in the health care system is supposed to provide remote assessment, interpretation, description and control of radiological studies performed in medical centers of all forms of ownership, with the use of telemedicine technologies. The reference center should simultaneously solve organizational, methodological, therapeutic, diagnostic, educational problems, information and coordination tasks and scientific issues. The concept is based on systematized results of publications and own successful experience of creation and effective functioning of the reference center on the basis of the State Funded Healthcare Institution of Moscow “Research and Practical Clinical Center of Diagnostics and Telemedicine Technologies, Department of Health Care of Moscow”. Basing on the concept, it is necessary to keep developing the scientific and practical aspects of normative, legal and methodological support of the activities of radiology reference centers.

2023 № 4 Evaluation of the effectiveness of using remote monitoring of blood pressure in the dispensary observation of patients with arterial hypertension
Arterial hypertension (AH) is by far the most important risk factor for cardiovascular disease. An effective method of dealing with high blood pressure (BP) is dispensary observation. Of particular relevance is the search for new tools to improve the dispensary observation of patients with hypertension, one of which may be remote monitoring of blood pressure, as an option for providing medical care using telemedicine technologies.
Purpose of study – Analysis of the effectiveness of using remote monitoring of blood pressure in the dispensary observation of patients with hypertension.
Methods. A non-randomised, open-label, generalized, single-centre, retrospective, longitudinal, parallel, applied study included 78 patients who completed a remote blood pressure monitoring program who were subsequently divided into 2 groups depending on the degree of achievement of target values of blood pressure (<135/85 mm Hg).
Results. During the observation period, all patients (n=78) experienced a decrease in SBP by 8.2 mmHg, DBP at 3.8 mmHg. Group 1 consisted of 35 patients who reached target levels of blood pressure, group 2 included 43 patients who did not reach target levels of blood pressure. Initially, the groups did not differ in sex and age, while in the second group, the initial values of SBP and DBP were higher. The study found that the degree of achievement of target levels of blood pressure is influenced by the following factors: the level of SBP and DBP at the beginning of observation, the proportion of extraordinary measurements with blood pressure levels above 135/85 mmHg during the observation period, the proportion of missed blood pressure measurements during the observation period, as well as the duration of remote monitoring.
Conclusions. Remote monitoring of blood pressure is an effective tool for improving the dispensary observation of patients with arterial hypertension and can improve the availability and quality of medical care.
