DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2018-2-69-76

Annotation: The Article is devoted to the study of the current state and directions of health care transformation in the Russian Federation in the Genesis of the digital economy. It is shown that from 2005 till now the steady tendency of decrease in medical institutions in the Russian Federation was formed. First of all, the reduction affected medical institutions that are located in rural areas. Thus, the Ministry of health implements a policy of cost optimization, which concerns medical institutions with low rates of demand. At the same time, there are costs of the policy of reducing medical institutions, which is due to the decrease in the availability of medical services for the population due to the geographical dispersion of settlements on the territory of the Russian Federation and the development of a negative social effect on households. At the same time, the number of beds in hospitals is decreasing. At the same time, there is a reduction in the number of medical personnel with a simultaneous increase in the workload. In our opinion, the solution to these problems could be the introduction of digital technologies into the activities of medical institutions. Diffusion of technologies of remote medicine should reduce the burden on health workers and increase the availability of medicine for the population and in particular in remote geographical areas of Russia. The introduction of Internet of things technologies should contribute to improving the monitoring of patients ‘ health in real time. Translation of documents and introduction of electronic medical records of patients will optimize the costs of the organization of the medical institution, intensify the activities of the doctor in the field of document management and ensure transparency of medical activities. The study showed that in modern conditions there is a diffusion of digital technologies in the health care of the Russian Federation.

DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2018-2-98-107

Annotation: Today’s challenges require to revise the existing approaches to training of students of economic disciplines. Such challenges include a number of problems: the emergence of innovative information technologies in various spheres of our lives, rapid changes in various sectors of the economy, weakening and “materialization” of motivation of students, the discrepancy between the views of teachers, the state, science and the market about the knowledge that a modern economist should have. Such fundamental modern trends as, for example, “digitalization”set a special tone for the development of the modern education system. Based on the analysis of abstracts and articles devoted to this problem, the author tries to identify the demand for “digital” competencies for economists in the modern Russian labor market. Another trend, which is now focused on the expert community, members of the government and the media – bringing the learning process to the development of skills that will be in demand in the market and in the future workplace graduate. At the same time, it is important to find a middle ground between the formation of these specialized skills and the expansion of the economic, legal, managerial erudition of graduates-economists in order to “not throw the child out with water”. Thus, in this article, based on the methods of comparative analysis and induction, Russian and international developments, as well as the experience of teaching the author of economic disciplines in higher education (Moscow Witte University), we will try to find recipes and propose new approaches to improve the quality and development of economic education in Russia.
