Healthcare CIO: Innovation Lessons From United States And Taiwan

by Wochit 1:00 mins

David Chou, the CIO at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, has published a report of suggestions for what the U.S. can learn from Taiwan as well as what they can learn from us, based on his experience at UMMC. In 1995, Taiwan launched a National Health Insurance program covering 99.9% of the population, including prison inmates. Before that, roughly 41% of the citizens were uninsured and without healthcare access. Today, Taiwan has 500 hospitals and 20,000 clinics with a very high average length of hospital stay of 10.3 days. Healthcare in Taiwan is viewed as a human right, not a privilege. NHI-approved care includes not only western procedures and prescription drugs, but traditional Chinese medicine as well. Monthly insurance premiums vary, but are affordable at less than US $50 per month.
