Medical Science. How to Expedite Introduction into Practical Healthcare
Historically, Russian science has a strong systematic foundation and a unique potential focused on breakthrough discoveries, development of leading technologies, and implementation of innovative products that ensure preservation and improvement of people’s lives. Today, however, the volume of scientific results exceeds that of solutions introduced into practice: research and development do not always reflect the current needs of the public and are not always in demand by the healthcare system. Unfavourable factors for the growth of the Russian medical science include inter-departmental disconnectedness and low innovative activity of business. Thus, results of scientific achievements are poorly integrated into healthcare and a situation of lost opportunities for use of new drugs and technologies is created in society. Building a favourable environment for medical science is a strategic task of the national government policy growth. It starts with systematic analysis of practical healthcare needs, an expert evaluation of research and development, and goes all the way to building strategies for financing and introducing scientific achievements into the healthcare system. The year 2020 has given a special standing to international cooperation in development of medical science, setting the course toward sharing experience and looking for new growth paths, and that means restoring the status quo of Russian science among the leading global scientific countries.
