Summary. Investigation purpose – to research in the subjects of the Russian Federation (subjects) an impact of introduction of distance echocardiography (ECG) delivery on ambulance crew decision-making on patient hospitalization to profiled hospitals.

Materials and methods of the investigation. Investigation materials have been got from 37 subjects. During the investigation a data which characterize work of ambulance crew medical specialists a year before and a year after an introduction of distance ECG delivery for ambulance crews in the subject were compared.

Investigation results and their analysis. A usage of ECG distance delivery and analysis technologies provides an increase of number of hospitalizations to profiled medical treatment organizations of patients with acute coronary syndrome which allow to provide necessary treatment measures in stationary conditions promptly.

Key words:
