Digital technologies and innovations can have a significant impact on the development of medical systems and the way in which health services are provided and accessed. Collaboration between the most important players in the IT industry, medicine and the private sector is essential in accelerating the digitization process and in improving and solving the pressing challenges in the system.
In this regard, in order to promote cooperation between the IT sector, medicine and the private sector in the Republic of Moldova, Startup Moldova, Technovator, State University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Nicolae Testemitanu” and Gyneco organize on June 15, at Tekwill, the first Health Tech Forum from the Republic of Moldova.

Stanislav Groppa, Vice-Rector for Research at the State University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Nicolae Testemitanu”: “The digital transformation of the health system and personalized medicine is a sine qua non for the future of public health in Moldova. Technologies and data can be just as important as classic drugs or various diagnostic procedures for the therapeutic act, as they allow us to monitor the patient synchronously or asynchronously, especially when it comes to chronic diseases. Therefore, the development of digital solutions based on evidence and scientific data, which will increase the quality of medical practice in the Republic of Moldova, is a maximum opportunity for training new generations of doctors in the spirit of contemporary medicine and fits perfectly with the strategic vision of education through research. USMF “Nicolae Testemitanu”.
Ana Chirița, TEKWILL Project Director: “We are at the stage where we have to learn to combine digitalization with medicine in order to offer more possibilities on the one hand to doctors and on the other – to patients. Here I am talking about digital services, an individual approach, expertise, help and modern practices. HealthTech Forum is an important platform for connecting the community of people with ideas and expertise. The event aims to identify concrete actions to accelerate innovation in medicine and set up a long-term action plan to support the system’s digitization process. “
