TYUMEN, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The number of patients who were offered high technology medical services has increased by seven times in Russia over the past five years, Russian Minister of Health Veronika Skvortsova said on Friday.
“The number of patients who were offered high technology medical services at regional medical establishments has increased considerably, by seven times,” she said at a meeting of the presidium of the presidential; council on top-priority national projects and the demographic policy. “In 2006-2007, there were no such patients.” According to Skvortsova, as many as 24,000 were able to use high technology medical services in 2008, while in 2013, the number of such people was 166,000. “Whereas back in 2008, only 98 medical establishments offered high technology medical services, in 2013, such services were offered by 289 regional medical establishments,” she stressed.
“Russia’s overall demand in high technology medical services is at least one million cases a year,” she noted. “So, we are fully aware that even though we have made a considerable progress since 2006, we will have to further increase the volume of high technology medical services by half in the next three years, to 750,000.
