A Business Model of Russian E-Health Based on Process Integration of Industry 4.0: The Development of Indicators for Information Communication

Author(s): Shaimieva E. Sh., Butneva A. Yu., Gumerova G. I.

This paper attempts to develop generalizable indicators of the information-based communication to (1) theoretically assess and define E-Health and (2) devise a generalizable e-health business model built on the indicators of information-based communication. Hereby, the status quo in German E-Health Industry 4.0. and European healthcare standards of the World Health Organization are reviewed and the corresponding information systems in the Russian healthcare are evaluated in a comparative perspective.

We then determine promising directions for the development of E-Health in Russia, following the logic of the process integration of information systems. The final part of the paper discusses results of the preceding theoretical analysis: identification of the main participants in the Russian E-Health business model; development of ten universal components that form indicators of information-based communication for E-Health in Russia; the authors' suggestions targeting at the implementation of a unified state information system in the Russian healthcare in 2021-2025.
