As a result of 543 telemedicine consultations 100% of patients were promptly hospitalized, of which 51,9 % underwent major surgical manipulations. Most often patients s ubmitted had following disorders of the genitourinary system 59,5% urolithiasis and neoplasms 33.3% (in most cases, malignant). The leading recommendations were percutaneous nephrolitholapaxy 39.0% of cases and radical prostatectomy 14.0%. Due to the use of telemedicine necessary clinical decisions were made quickly, and the logistics of patients was significantly improved and optimized. An important area for further work is indepth study of diagnostic and clinical efficacy, the development of organizational, methodical and regulatory frameworks of teleurology, as well as the widest possible implementation of training, including remote, telemedicine skills.
