The use of artificial intelligence has changed our way of life to the extent that we now expect a radical transformation of the way medical care is provided. Users must not only understand the possibilities of digital medicine but also benefit directly from using it. Mobile devices, technologies and applications, including cloud computing with mobile access to medical information, social media facilitating patient-doctor communications, and big data analysis allowing access to diagnostic information anytime and anywhere, will form the backbone of the modernization of global health systems. Robotics, nuclear medicine, cloud services, telemedicine, artificial intelligence, and 3D organ printing are already here. In the new healthcare paradigm, breakthrough technologies are the cornerstone of its transformation and will allow us to achieve three main goals: reduce costs, improve quality, and increase the availability of medical care. What will healthcare look like in ten years’ time in Russia and elsewhere globally? Who will treat people in 20 years: a robot or a doctor? Will artificial intelligence be able to offer human touch such as communication, care, and decision-making when providing medical care? How can digital technologies affect the transparency and availability of medicines to the public? Which investments in digital healthcare are the most promising?
