What Country Has the Best Health Care System?

The world’s top healthcare systems are widely revered for their accessibility, quality care and focus on preventative measures. But what sets these nations apart and can you learn from their experience to implement in your global benefits packages?

Singapore, known for its highly efficient healthcare system, topped Numbeo’s Health and Healthcare Index 2023. Singapore stands out for its emphasis on preventive healthcare; regularly offering screenings, immunisations campaigns and anti-diabetes initiatives to keep its citizens healthy. Furthermore, they boast one of the lowest chronic disease rates in their region as well as high life expectancies.

Japan regularly appears on the top ten list for its efforts in expanding universal coverage and optimizing healthcare monitoring through technology. Japan’s health insurance covers an extensive array of medical services such as hospitalisation, prescription drugs and psychological counseling – as well as being designed to promote mental wellbeing among its people and prevent chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Norway ranks sixth on the global healthcare rankings for providing access to high-quality, accessible care. Norway invests heavily in both infrastructure and workforce investments; as such, only 1-2% of adults miss out on treatment due to missing coverage in this system that is publicly funded; private healthcare can supplement that coverage if desired.

Australia consistently makes lists of top healthcare systems, and boasts an expansive public healthcare network offering free basic healthcare to all citizens and residents who contribute to national social security system. If you would like access to some of Australia’s top-notch medical facilities, private health cover may provide access to additional services not covered under public system.

South Korea stands out in the list for its outstanding healthcare system. Boasting some of the highest doctor-to-patient ratios in OECD, South Korea boasts low obesity levels, heart disease mortality rates that remain relatively low and an exceptionally high life expectancy for its citizens. Yet its healthcare system may not be universally available and people often need to pay out-of-pocket for procedures.

The US is faring poorly in comparison, despite spending much of its GDP on healthcare, with poor mortality rates. Furthermore, its overall health lags far behind that of many of its peers as it also suffers from high prevalence rates for obesity and alcohol abuse; discontent over cost-of-treatment issues as well as perceived mistreatment has lead to verbal and physical attacks against healthcare workers – particularly notable in rural areas.
