Slovenia close OECD average in 2015 health care report

Health at a Glance 2015, a report by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), shows Slovenia near the OECD average in most of the examined parameters despite a poor doctor-patient ratio and the fact that the number of medical devices in the country is significantly under the OECD average, reports STA.

The 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.
