OECD Indicators

image of Health at a Glance 2021

Health at a Glance provides a comprehensive set of indicators on population health and health system performance across OECD members and key emerging economies. These cover health status, risk factors for health, access to and quality of health care, and health resources. Analysis draws from the latest comparable official national statistics and other sources.

Alongside indicator-by-indicator analysis, an overview chapter summarises the comparative performance of countries and major trends. This edition also has a special focus on the health impact of COVID-19 in OECD countries, including deaths and illness caused by the virus, adverse effects on access and quality of care, and the growing burden of mental ill-health.

Safe acute care – workplace culture and patient experiences

Measures of patient safety culture from the perspective of health workers can be used – along with patient-reported experiences of safety, traditional patient safety indicators (see indicator “Safe acute care – surgical complications and obstetric trauma”) and health outcome indicators (see, for example, indicator “Mortality following acute myocardial infarction”) – to give a holistic perspective of the state of safety in health systems.
