This new edition of Health at a Glance presents the most recent comparable data on the performance of health systems in OECD countries. Where possible, it also reports data for partner countries (Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russian Federation and South Africa). Compared with the previous edition, this new edition includes a new set of dashboards of health indicators to summarise in a clear and user-friendly way the relative strengths and weaknesses of OECD countries on different key indicators of health and health system performance, and also a special focus on the pharmaceutical sector. This edition also contains new indicators on health workforce migration and on the quality of health care.

Patient experience with ambulatory care

Delivering health care that is responsive and patient-centered is playing a greater role in health care policy across OECD countries. Measuring and monitoring patient experience empowers patients and the public, involves them in decisions on health care delivery and governance, and provides insight into the extent to which they are health-literate and have control over the treatment they receive. Across countries, using the health care user as a direct source of information is becoming more prevalent for health system monitoring, planning and decision making, and efforts to measure and monitor patient experiences have actually led to health care quality improvements (Fujisawa and Klazinga, forthcoming).
