Akim (Mayor) of Astana Mr. Adilbek Dzhaksybekov launched a series of “Smart” projects in July. Smart Astana project includes several directions, such as Smart Clinics, Smart Schools, Smart Street Lighting and Smart Payments.

“In order to avoid queuing, to create comfortable conditions, to regulate the flow of adults and children, as well as to exclude their intersection at the reception and near specialists’ offices, we introduced the Triage System, which allows hospitals to receive visitors depending on the type of their treatment and on the severity of their condition. These passages do not overlap with each other, which is essential for the maintenance of the sanitary-epidemiological status of the facility and for the prevention of the spread of various diseases,” said the head of the Astana Health Department Yerik Baizhunussov.

The innovations will also include the introduction in 2016 of electronic medical records for patients in all medical organizations to eliminate paperwork and increase convenience.

The concept of Smart Astana was created to improve the quality of life of the population of the capital.

Smart Astana was created and is being implemented by Astana Innovations to create conditions and infrastructure to become one of the top 50 Smart cities of the world. All Smart projects are being implemented by investors without the involvement of public funds.
