Telemedicine in Russia: Expectations and challenges

The telemedicine market in Russia has been rapidly developing for the past few years. The advent of high speed internet and advanced telecommunications has made telemedicine accessible across the country. Before State Duma approved a long anticipated Bill on Telemedicine and Federal Law No. 242-FZ ‘On Amending Certain Legal Acts of the Russian Federation on the Use of Information Technologies in the Area of Health Care’ (the ‘Law on Telemedicine’), which became effective as of 1 January 2018, telemedicine services were operating without a legal framework in Russia. Julianna Tabastajewa and Meldir Erbulekova of Gowling WLG, discuss the Law on Telemedicine and the likely impact on the provision of healthcare in Russia.
