College of Economics and Social Sciences

Remote work model for health care facilities ensuring continuous healthcare in conditions of limited social mobility, eg.:

  • tools and methods used in remote work at the level of medical entities in the context of social goals set for them (availability of health services, quality of medical care) and required economic effects (costs, efficiency of resource use).
  • innovative model of remote work processes for primary health care and outpatient specialist care facilities, taking into account interests of different stakeholders.
