ACCESS Health systematically studies the Singapore healthcare system and how the country plans to confront the growing impact of demographic change on the healthcare system, the economy, and the city. The initial study was a detailed description of the current healthcare system: its origins, its finance, and its performance. This work is summarized in the book Affordable Excellence: The Singapore Healthcare Story: How to Create and Maintain Sustainable Healthcare Systems, published in April 2103.
Affordable Excellence was followed by an in depth analysis of the changes in the financing and operation of the Singapore healthcare system between April 2013 and April 2014. A series of significant changes were made to accommodate the growing needs of the elderly population. The changes also encourage young people to have more children. The Epilogue to Affordable Excellence summarizes changes made between April 2013 and 2014. It is available here.
