日本、医療の満足度15% 22カ国で最低レベル

医療関係者にとって、とてもショッキングな話題

オンライン調査であり、科学性はない。

だが、日本は高コストのわりに、患者満足度最低ということは重大。ロイターは、この非効率性は、高度高齢化による高医療コストとしているようだ。

オンライン調査故、若年者にその対象が偏っていると思う。また、これは、アメリカの医療満足度調査の一環であり、日本の調査はその一環で行われており、メディアの調査によくある、論調に沿った調査という疑いも・・・

これを科学的根拠として、財務省などのアホ役人や御用役人やその偏った知識で浅知恵政策を行おうとする政治家がでないことを願う。

それにしても、”もし コストと満足度が比例してないのなら”・・・現状はやはり改善すべきだと思う。
その前に、真に科学的な調査がなされることが大事だろう。

日本、医療の満足度15% 22カ国で最低レベル

 【ワシントン共同】日米中など先進、新興22カ国を対象にした医療制度に関する満足度調査で、手ごろで良質な医療を受けられると答えた日本人は15%にとどまり、22カ国中最低レベルであることが15日分かった。ロイター通信が報じた。

 ロイターは、日本は国民皆保険制度があり、長寿社会を誇っているとしつつも「高齢者の医療保険の財源確保で苦労している」と指摘した。

 自国の医療制度に満足している人の割合が高いのはスウェーデン(75%)とカナダ(約70%)で、英国では55%が「満足」と回答。韓国、ロシアなどの満足の割合は30%以下だった。

 国民皆保険制度が未導入で、オバマ大統領による医療保険制度改革の議論で国論が二分した米国は、回答者の51%が手ごろな医療を受けられると回答した。

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - People living in countries with government-run healthcare systems like Sweden and Canada are far more confident than Americans that their families can get good, affordable care, according to a 22-nation survey released on Thursday.

The Ipsos/Reuters online poll found 75 percent of Swedes and nearly 70 percent of Canadians thought it would be fairly easy to get treatment if a relative became ill, compared to just 51 percent of Americans.

Conducted while the U.S. Congress fought over sweeping changes to expand access to health insurance, the November 2009 to January 2010 survey found Americans were divided over their access to healthcare. The U.S. health reforms became law last month.

"Even at this very divisive time, half of the (U.S.) public was basically satisfied with their healthcare" said Darrell Bricker of Ipsos, a global survey-based market research company. "Americans are basically split on this."

The United States spends more than any other nation on healthcare -- roughly 16 percent of its economy -- but still has higher rates of infant mortality, diabetes and other illnesses than other rich countries.

Still, not all countries with a government hand in healthcare reported greater satisfaction, according to the poll, which surveyed more than 23,000 people worldwide.

Just 55 percent of residents in Britain, which has nationalized healthcare, expressed confidence while 45 percent of those in Germany thought it would be easy to access treatment.

In Japan, which provides universal medical care, just 15 percent said they thought a relative could easily get affordable, quality care. The Asian nation boasts a high life expectancy but is grappling with health costs as the elderly make up more than 40 percent of the population.

Other countries that ranked low in satisfaction included Hungary, Russia and South Korea -- all of which showed confidence in good care at less than 30 percent.

The survey also found that neighboring giants India and China had vastly different experiences, with 64 percent of Indians citing confidence, putting them fifth behind the Netherlands. In China, 34 percent said they thought they could get good care.

Across all countries, women, adults younger than 55, the poor and the less-educated reported lower satisfaction with their access to healthcare, the survey found.

Ipsos surveyed 23,351 adults in 22 nations that account for 75 percent of the world's gross domestic product.

Countries polled were: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Britain, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain, South Korea, Sweden and the United States.

Respondents were recruited and screened, then results were balanced to reflect the country's demographics, according to Ipsos. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percent.

日曜当番でまじめそうな患者さんが一言
「日曜日に診療してないなんて日本くらいなのでは?」・・・と

こういう認識しかない日本に住む日本人の感想にもとづくアンケートなのだろう
