Qualified medical care should be available to residents of all regions of Russia. It was stated today by Dmitry Medvedev, who chaired a meeting of the Government Commission on the public healthcare. The Prime Minister visited Moscow City Hospital No. 67. In the Neurosurgery Department, he saw an exceptional equipment, which allows conducting complex operations, including the special robot. Dmitry Medvedev paid a special attention to a mobile diagnostic and treatment system, which doctors call "mini-clinic on wheels." Another important topic of discussion is the development of the air ambulance.
Dmitry Medvedev: In big cities, air ambulance helps to provide faster medical care, including high-tech. Delivery by helicopters in dense traffic conditions, emergency medical assistance, particularly in traffic accidents, unfortunately, still is not as fast as we'd like, so our task is to bring closer medical aid and medical centres to provide health services to the busiest, most difficult places for emergency assistance, and to provide emergency medical care in the shortest possible time within a "golden hour".
Summing up the results of the meeting, we can conclude that there is now progress in the organization of emergency medical assistance. Suggestions were made to improve rapid response capabilities and greater involvement of sanitary transport aviation, in particular, the use of helicopters and fast construction of helipads in major hospitals.
