Venue changed for healthcare launch, Medical Alumni cancels booking
Now it is difficult to obtain data on the performance of Singapore’s healthcare system. Relatively little is published, and therefore comparisons with other countries’ systems are not possible. I would not have an issue with this confidentiality if Singapore did not promote its healthcare system outside its borders. However, because the Singapore Government is actively advocating the ‘3M’ system to other countries (like China) as a means of controlling healthcare costs, I believe that Singapore has a social responsibility to release this data so that others can independently evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of the Singaporean system.
