Statement of Prof. Oleg Medvedev: The space program has played the key role in development of e-Health technologies in USSR and Russia. The country has over twenty years of highly isolated medicine informatization with very limited external contacts. Main tendencies in development and implementation of EHRs and PHRs are on the levels of healthcare provider, regional and national. The main problem of developed solutions is lack of common interfaces and interoperability with the existing systems. Nowadays Russian state is an active player in this field, e.g., it recently launched the Governmental program of informatization and the special facilitating role is given to the Skolkovo Foundation.
