2020 № 3 Economic aspects of providing medical care using telemedicine technologies
The aim of the research is to study the economic aspects of telemedicine technologies application, taking into account
the experience of other countries; to develop methodological approaches to evaluating the effectiveness of telemedicine technologies; to analyze the features of evaluating the effectiveness of telemedicine technologies in the conditions of COVID‑19 coronavirus spread. Methodological approaches to evaluating the effectiveness of telemedicine technologies are proposed.
The additional costs and benefits of using telemedicine technologies are analyzed in the context of the main participants: the state, medical organizations, doctors, and patients. The additional costs of introducing telemedicine technologies are estimated in terms of their belonging to the so-called “necessary costs” or investments that have different economic content . The proposals developed by the authors allow us to more correctly assess the effectiveness of investments in the provision of telemedicine services and, thus, choose the most optimal options.
2020 № 2 Legal problems of telemedicine technologies application in the context of fighting the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus
The purpose of the research is to analyze the legal problems of using telemedicine technologies, taking into account the experience of other countries; to assess the limitations of using telemedicine technologies in preventing the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus; to develop approaches to overcome existing restrictions in this area.
The authors consider the system of legal relations that arise between various participants in the provision of telemedicine services, focusing on international experience in this field.
On the example of the Russian Federation, the analysis of legal restrictions for the development of telemedicine technologies, which are typical for other countries, is carried out. A number of common problems of implementing telemedicine technologies are identified, as well as the specifics of legal regulation of telemedicine services in the Russian Federation.
Measures are proposed to overcome a number of legal restrictions in the use of telemedicine services related to licensing, labor legislation, etc.
