Which Countries Are Ready for Connected Care?—China



FHI Score: 58.1

Ranking: 3 out of 13

Reason behind the ranking: "China's index score is driven by its high adoption of connected care technology. A country known for rapid technological progress, it earns the second-highest adoption score, with particularly strong rankings in usage and perception . . . China also has a high level and perception of integration . . . Access keeps China from taking the top spot, with patients and healthcare professionals viewing the overall health of the population as a major challenge," the study authors wrote.
