Landscaping Study of Healthcare Delivery Innovation in China An Innovations in Healthcare Program

Project overview

A landscape study of healthcare innovation in China that analyzed fifteen models of healthcare innovation and provided insight into barriers to innovation in China’s healthcare delivery sector.  The analysis indicates that healthcare delivery innovation is happening in China, but is not as easy to find as in other countries, in part because the public sector so strongly dominates healthcare, creating high barriers to entry for new models of care and making it more desirable for innovations to avoid attracting attention. Given the healthcare challenges faced by China, these findings suggest that the government should increase opportunities and support for innovators to test their ideas and enter the market.
