Vital Signs and Measures
All measures, including the measures within the Vital Signs, are equally weighted.
Costa Rica has a robust data infrastructure, and a large proportion of households have internet access at home and on their mobile telephones. Most notably, Costa Rica has made significant progress towards universal healthcare coverage (UHC). While cancer registries are in use, Costa Rica can improve on availability of information, particularly by adopting a more open model of government data. Although Costa Rica’s overall EHR strategy is the strongest among Latin American countries, legislators could be doing more to increase patient access to healthcare data held in electronic health records (EHRs).
