Globally, there is a growing trend towards making healthcare data more transparent

Globally, there is a growing trend towards making healthcare data more transparent. Which countries are pursuing this agenda furthest and fastest - and how does New Zealand’s performance compare?

KPMG’s Global Healthcare practice looked at 32 of the world’s major health systems; to measure what data is being published, and how well it is being communicated. The study also explores what makes a health system transparent, and imagines an optimal future if health systems made the most of this powerful tool. 

The performance of each country’s health system was evaluated using a scorecard that assessed six key dimensions of transparency: 

1. Quality of Healthcare

2. Patient Experience

3. Financing

4. Governance

5. Personal Healthcare Data

6. Communication of Healthcare Data

In addition to the Global report, a Country Report Card has been prepared by KPMG New Zealand.

This shows that New Zealand ranks strongly in healthcare transparency, sitting 7th out of 32 countries. Our overall transparency score is 67, compared to the average of 55. Our healthcare system is particularly transparent around governance and finance; although there are other areas highlighted for improvement.
