Promotion of Home Telehealth Services, and Development of Mobile eHealth Applications in Armenia.

 

Among AATM’s plans for strategic development of health ICT in Armenia special place is devoted to remote patients’ monitoring and mobile (wireless) eHealth technologies. Importance of home telehealth lies in better management of chronic conditions and maintenance of health status in target groups of patients. Mobile telehealth (mHealth) emerges as one of the most promising areas of development in health ICT. 

In June 2012 AATM established cooperation with a telehealth and mHealth equipment producer company MegaKoto from Finland, and mHealth services provider Mobile Cardio from The Netherlands aiming to develop Mobile ECG Telemonitoring system for local cardiology clinics. The system consists of the central data server connected via dedicated lines with monitoring workstations installed at cardiology institutions and clinics, and lightweight highly portable single lead ECG sensors coupled via Bluetooth with Android smart phones with special application preinstalled. The sensor is reading ECG signal and sending it to the phone’s app, which uploads the data onto the server through mobile broadband connection. The monitoring workstation receives the signal in real time from the server, and displays it on large LED screens, for 7/24 live ECG monitoring by dedicated personnel. Besides that, authorized physicians are able to access their patients’ ECG data on the server, both live-streamed and stored, via special Web Access platform from any device connected to Internet. Thus, the system allows any person with heart problem to remain under ECG-surveillance 7/24, theoretically as long as the cardiologist deems necessary. Such breakthrough telemonitoring technology is being made available for Armenian population for the first time ever. The initial installations are already done (including the server and one monitoring workstation at one of the country’s leading cardiology facilities); the system has been tested in real life patients, and should now enter the commercial exploitation phase.

Workshop on Development of Digital Health Cluster in Armenia

The Digital Health Revolution is currently making a major impact on the healthcare systems globally (greatly fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic), by improving the healthcare systems and tackling key healthcare challenges in both developed and developing countries. Digital Health tools and applications ranging from Electronic Health Information Systems to Telemedicine, and from Mobile Health to the use of Artificial Intelligence and Genomics Analytics for Personalized ("Precision") Medicine, are capable of delivering previously unimaginable value with regard to quality, accessibility, affordability, and equity of health care.

Digital Health is also among the most rapidly growing business sectors in the world. Global Digital Health market size was estimated at $350 billion in 2019, and is predicted to surpass $600 billion by 2024 [McKinsey]. Armenia -- with its world-class educated workforce, dynamic IT sector, and significant global networking opportunities greatly facilitated by the Armenian Diaspora, is well positioned to become one of the global leaders in Digital Health.

 

A group of Digital Health experts and enthusiasts from Armenia and the Diaspora have been working on an initiative to establish a Digital Health Cluster in Armenia, with R&D, education, and entrepreneurship (a startup ecosystem) components. The Digital Health Cluster has a potential to drive forward the technological and economic development of Armenia and Artsakh, modernize and improve the existing healthcare systems and services, and assist Armenia and Artsakh in emerging as a global Digital Health leader, the 'Health Silicon Valley of the Caucasus'. Furthermore, this will allow the creation of thousands of local professional job opportunities within the healthcare, IT, and education sectors.

 

This workshop will attempt to:
1. Bring together representatives of relevant stakeholders and potential investors,
2. Present and discuss the initiative,
3. Brainstorm the necessary activities, and
4. Produce and adopt a draft Roadmap of further development.

Workshop Invitees:
Ministers and/or Deputy Ministers of Health, High Tech Industry, Economy, Education and Science, and the High Commissioner of Diaspora Affairs;
Representatives of Armenian National eHealth Operator;
Representatives of major investing agencies and potential donors from Armenia and the Diaspora;
Representatives of International Organizations (WHO, World Bank, ADB among others);
Representatives of Academia and R&D Units;
Representatives of Healthcare Providers;
Representatives of Healthcare Payers;
Representatives of High Tech Industry
