Dmitry Ivanov took part in the meeting with Vladimir Putin

March, 16, rector of the Pediatric University Dmitry Ivanov took part in that discussion at the highest level. The V.A. Almazov Medical Center of The Ministry of Health of Russia held a meeting of the President Vladimir Putin with healthcare professionals.

The experts discussed a wide variety of issues related to the development of the national healthcare system. In particular, an additional 10 billion rubles from the federal budget will be allocated annually to re-equip children's polyclinics and outpatient departments of children's hospitals. The meeting participants also talked about the government's support for physicians: wage increases and social support for medical workers. The President noted the importance of domestic health care development. In particular, Vladimir Putin drew special attention to the development of medical institutions in the country's regions, suggesting using digital medicine more often.
 
Experts have been talking about telemedicine technologies in healthcare for a long time. They have a lot of disputes here, but practice shows that the opportunity for doctors in the regions to get professional advice from their colleagues from federal clinics helps those physicians to make a more accurate diagnosis, and patients – to make a correction without the risk of complications as soon as possible.
 
The St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical University has been working with regional hospitals and perinatal centers for several years, consulting colleagues via video over the Internet. Such consultations are conducted by pediatricians of the Northern Capital for their colleagues from the regions of the Far East and North Caucasus, significantly reducing the time of diagnosis for patients who are sometimes thousands of kilometers away.
 
During the discussion with the President, specialists also drew attention to the infant mortality rate in the country. According to Dmitry Ivanov, rector of The St. Petersburg State Pediatric Medical University and Chief Neonatologist of the Russian Ministry of Health, the construction of perinatal centers and unprecedented attention to infant and child mortality has already yielded results. "There is a huge potential to reduce infant mortality in our country. We have already managed to achieve the lowest results in the history of our healthcare system. If targets had been set to reduce infant mortality in the future, it would have been beneficial. We have quite a large reserve," – the head of the Pediatric University summed up.
 
"I fully agree with you. For these purposes, perinatal centers have been built, additional resources are being allocated. We will definitely do it", – replied Vladimir Putin.
 
Minister of Health Veronika Skvortsova also noted that the state program of the Ministry of Health sets goals to further reduce infant mortality rates: "Over the last 5 years, child mortality in our country has decreased by 30%. Dmitry Ivanov is right, we have much more to strive for and we will support it”.
