On June 27 communications infrastructure in Karelia was inspected by Yuri Averyanov, the First Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of Russia. We remind you that several projects for implementation of modern information technologies are brought into life in the Republic as a part of preparation for Karelia's 100th anniversary.

The meeting of the Karelian Government supervised by Yuri Averyanov examined implementation of decisions of the State Commission for preparation for the Republic's 100th anniversary in the field of communications. Before the meeting Yuri Averyanov visited several organizations and institutions where they use or are getting ready for implementation of new information and communication technologies.

Yuri Averyanov paid a lot of attention to analysis of new opportunities opening after implementation of telemedicine. The representative of the Security Council took part in the telebridge with Kalevala regional hospital while visiting the Children's Republican Hospital. Doctors from Kalevala were consulted by the leading doctors from Petrozavodsk in taking care of a prematurely born baby.

According to representatives of the Children's Republican Hospital, telemedical communications in Karelia have been established with all central district hospitals. In their turn, parents of little patients in Petrozavodsk can be consulted by doctors from federal clinics. In the course of consultation from a distance it is possible to transmit roentgenograms, cardiograms, results of tests and analyses using communications channels. More than half a hundred telebridges are arranged in the Children's Republican Hospital during the year.
