 19.02.20 - 19.02.20  10:00-12:00   AEB Event: Telemedicine – Current Experience, Outlook and Further Development in Russia 
The AEB is pleased to invite you to participate in the round table organised by the AEB Safety, Health, Environment and Security Committee, titled “Telemedicine – current experience, outlook and further development in Russia”. The event will be held on February 19th, 2020, from 10:00 am to 12:00 am (registration starts at 9:30), at the AEB Conference Center (68/70 Butyrskiy Val, bld.1). Please click here to register online. The industry of telemedicine is at a tipping point, expanding far beyond interactions between physicians and patients into entirely new ways to deliver healthcare and practice medicine. Can it bring added value to the employers? In several countries telemedicine has become a critical component of employee benefit design, giving employees greater access to medical support from wherever they are connected via smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Employees often use their telemedicine benefits to deal with minor illnesses, or when treating common health conditions like rashes, burns, and cuts. For these reasons, more employers will offer telemedicine in the future. The working language of the event is Russian. Interpretation will be provided upon prior request. Find the programme of the event in English. Contact persons: Programme: Olga Silnitskaya, olga.silnitskaya@aebrus.ru, +7 495 234-2764 #119; Registration: Evgeniya Zakharova, evgeniya.zakharova@aebrus.ru or +7 495 234-2764 #127.
