Singapore ranks first in healthcare readiness
It scored a point of 71 in a global index.
Singapore is the number one country in healthcare readiness across Asia Pacific, according to a survey by FutureProofing Healthcare.
In the Asia-Pacific Personalised Health Index, 11 healthcare systems were measured on how they enact personalised healthcare or enabling the right care to be tailored to the right person at the right time.
Singapore ranked first with a total of 71 in the Index. It is followed by Taiwan, Japan, and Australia.
The Index was built on publicly available, credible and open-source-real-world data supplemented with input from public health authority representatives across APAC and validated by a panel of leading healthcare experts.
Twenty-seven indicators were used to measure the score in the index. The indicators were divided into four categories: policy context, health information, personalised technologies, and health services.
