The Northern regions are usually sparcely populated and communication between settlements is often either hard, or not possible. In conditions like this, support of the modern healthcare system capable of treating serious diseases appears as incredibly expensive and nearly impossible. However, use of modern technologies can sufficiently simplify and cheapen functioning of remote healthcare centers.

This pilot project has reached certain success in workshops and experience exchange in Anchorage, Khanty-Mansiysk, Yakutsk, Seattle and Pyeonchang. Experts from Khanty-Mansiysk and the Sakha Republic held meetings with experts from the United States, Republic of Korea (Gangwon) and Finland – what accelerated the inception of this technology in life. Priority topic on all meetings remains the technological aspect of telemedicine initiative.
