We need to better understand what the patients themselves think of health care. The OECD is a global leader in collecting, reporting and benchmarking health system performance and health care quality indicators and the OECD Patient-Reported Indicators Survey (PaRIS) will address critical information gaps and build a patient-centred view of health system performance.

Universal Health Coverage is about everyone having access to good quality health services without suffering financial hardship. Although most OECD countries offer all their citizens affordable access to a comprehensive package of health services, they face challenges in sustaining and enhancing such universal systems.
The OECD is actively involved in the G7 Health Ministers meetings. This page reviews the issues discussed as well as the reports prepared by the OECD to inform those meetings.

The OECD core mission to promote policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world brings much relevant experience supporting countries to achieve and sustain universal health coverage (UHC).
Those in-depth studies of the health system of member countries focus on economic issues. They assess the performance of health systems in a comparative context, identify the main challenges faced by the country health system and put forward policy options to better meet them. Reviews are initiated at the request of the country to be examined and emphasis is placed on specific issues of key policy interest.
The objective of the HCQI Project is to develop a set of indicators based on comparable data and which can be used to raise questions for further investigation on quality differences across countries.
