"All rural clinics, FAPs and hospitals should be in constant communication and equipped with the necessary equipment. Therefore, we have already transferred 148 mobile diagnostic complexes to the districts of the region. They have the look of a compact suitcase, inside which there is modern equipment for the work of telemedicine ", - said Maxim Stepanov.
