Close cooperation between the scientific community, technology companies and business are creating new innovative and more cost-effective approaches to healthcare in Russia. How does closer collaboration across a range of scientific disciplines, together with new business models, have the potential to transform the healthcare system? What case studies in scientific, technological and business collaboration might serve as a broader framework and model to be replicated across additional healthcare applications? Where is private sector financing of healthcare innovation proving most effective?

Key moments

1 RUB spent on prevention and early detection can save up to 7 RUB on treatment later.
Ronald de Jong
Health care is not only about healing people but also cultivating a healthy population and society.
Olga Golodets
Legislating an option for co-financing compulsory health insurance would significantly widen the range of services available, as well as create an additional market, which would spur on the development of private care.
Mikhail Shamolin
Russia is developing preventive medicine as this is the most cost effective and profitable type of individual health care.
Veronika Skvortsova
Patients don’t care who is providing their health care, whether it is the state or private. What matters is the quality of the services.
Arkadi Stolpner
The main thing is to localize affordable technologies to the medical equipment market. This helps to drive efficiency, quality, and costs.
