Vital Signs and Measures
All measures, including the measures within the Vital Signs, are equally weighted.
These include a strong digital infrastructure and health data collection capabilities as well as large investments in research and development. However, there are several areas that South Korea can strengthen. A plan, strategy, or policy for personalised healthcare and personalised healthcare-enabling technologies and services, greater utilisation of health information technology, and higher levels of data interoperability are particularly needed. In addition, South Korea could explore opportunities to support healthcare innovation, streamline regulation, and further support reimbursement for personalised services and treatments. Improving access to data for research as well as building capacity in the health workforce may also be priorities for South Korea as it moves forward towards more personalisation in healthcare.
