9 June 2016

IT Forum ended with the final plenary session, where moderators of strategic sessions, discussions and round tables told the audience what the experts agreed on over the two days.

Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Institute of the Information Society Development Yuri Khokhlov said which principles of e-government in the Russian Federation have been identified by participants at the strategic session "E-government: new requirements and challenges " "We will experience a quiet revolution - the farther, the more e-government technologies will cover all levels and branches of the government. The second point is related to the restructuring of the electronic government. This is the principle of focus on customer - people will be put at the top. We will move away from document-oriented (in fact, traditional) approach to the implementation of public services and cooperation between the authorities, citizens and businesses. "

Yuri Khokhlov said that now the availability of the document means the presence of a person who has to review it and make a decision. The fact is that many services are based on simple, regulated, algorithmic operations, which are quite possible to perform in automatic mode today.

"Some of the services provided by a human, with errors and time delay behind it, it is necessary to implement meaningful interaction with the legally significant database," he said.

Another key topic was the telemedicine. During the forum, it became known that an application would be submitted to the BRICS Bank for a loan to build an international telemedicine center. As the Governor of Ugra Natalia Komarova noted in his speech during the opening ceremony , it is a demanded project that can provide high standards of service for nearly three billion people.

According to the moderator of the strategic session "Design of compatible integrated telemedicine systems in the regions of the BRICS countries," Chairman of the Board of Directors of the NGO "National Telemedicine Agency" Mikhail Natenzon, the results of discussions were very successful.

"We planned this meeting to sign an agreement to create an international community of telemedicine, to be able to coordinate the activities for the preparation of applications to the BRICS Bank and the implementation of the project. It was a difficult document that we had been preparing for six months," Mikhail Natenzon said, "Everybody tried so hard that discussion took place without major changes the document, and we have signed it.”

Vladislav Epishkin told about the outcome of the business community work in the session "The development of cooperation in the IT sphere between BRICS entrepreneurs": "There are many common points. A lot of work to be done. I hope that it will form the basis of growth of trade and economic relations between our countries. "
