Russia considers India as one of the export markets for its IT solutions. Also, according to one of the leaders of the Russian state Corporation, the possibility of partnership with Indian IT companies for introduction of domestic developments.

Brovko, Director of special Affairs of state Corporation rostec, is responsible for the implementation of state policy in the field of industrial development. According to him the Corporation could develop solutions together with Indian partners to transfer technology to the client and train end-users, as it occurred in the framework of defense contracts.

The digital economy includes products and services in the field of IT, digital banking, e-Commerce services, the use of electronic and crypto-currencies, and so on…

At the moment, the Russian IT export is seven billion US dollars. “We plan to double that number by 2025 through the development of software, hardware and training of specialists”, — says Vasily Brovko.

On the question of investment required to achieve this goal, he replied: “Certainly, the investment program exists, but, first and foremost, this is not about funding, but about skills and the appropriate level of training”. Indian IT service providers and Russian experts on the architecture of the systems, who know how to do complement each other.”

The reduction of mortality

Five regional perinatal centers Rostec established system on the basis of IT, big data processing and management and distribution of information about patients to reduce mortality among mothers and newborns. These centres function as technical hubs associated with other perinatal centres in their regions. The system includes all the data about pregnancies. All the patients, which require reinforced medical surveillance are tracked and receive appropriate help at the center. “Since the beginning of the implementation of the system, the mortality rate decreased by 40%. We plan to build another 10 of the perinatal centers in different regions of Russia, — said V. Brovko and added, In such large countries as Russia and India, technology can help to make available quality health care throughout”.

Rostec is also promoting FOR NTechLab for face recognition. According to V. Brovko, two-week trial AT only 1 000 of the 260 000 surveillance cameras in public places in Moscow has helped to identify 10 criminals included in the list of most wanted criminals in the country.

He also added that this may seriously help in the fight against terrorism. “Merging the databases of Interpol, Europol and the FSB [successor to KGB] could allow to achieve very impressive results. India had to deal with the problem of terrorism, so that these technologies can be useful for her.”

Also, NCI has initiated the establishment of the single health system, which will be accumulated and systematized all the medical data of citizens. For example, if a patient receives treatment in a regional hospital, and after, say, three years, he again required treatment at relapse, he could go to the hospital in another region and to obtain online access to their medical records. Access the map also gets the doctor accessed the patient.

According to Konstantin soloduhina., General Director of NCI, “the System is being implemented since 2011, and, according to forecasts, by 2018 it will benefit 50 million Russians.” The database is updated from various registries of medical institutions at all levels, here you can track information on rare diseases and their treatment, as well as on the interaction between doctor and patient, the patient’s preferences for treatment, decisions taken and their reasons. “Since data is collected in cities and regions, it allows the government to better plan the budget in the health sector”, he said. Currently the system has more than 6,500 medical centers and more than 1.2 million medical specialists.

“Such popular projects as “Bright city” and the health project have already found application in several countries,” — said Konstantin Solodukhin.

On the question of the timing of the statements made, V. Brovko said: “taking into account technology changes and our capabilities, now is the right time — and added, not without irony, Our colleagues from the USA, with their ridiculous statement about the intervention of the Russian IT-specialists in their elections, did us excellent publicity and drew even more attention to the achievements of our IT industry.
