About

Home : About

A healthcare system consists of physical facilities, human resources, medical technologies (medicines & devices), and the institutions related to the financing, regulation and delivery of healthcare. It exists to provide personal medical services to a population.

Evidence-based policy-making means that, wherever possible, public policy decisions should be informed by careful analysis using sound and transparent data. More specifically, it may be defined as the systematic and rigorous use of statistics to achieve issue recognition, inform programme design and policy choice; forecast the future, monitor policy implementation, and evaluate policy impact. Policy outcomes are crucially affected by the extent to which relevant evidence is used to shape policy design, and by the speed with which the results of monitoring are fed back into policy implementation. We urgently need to develop the statistical capacity in Malaysia to improve the evidence base for healthcare policy, and to support the design, monitoring and evaluation of healthcare policy implementation.

OBJECTIVES

The Malaysian National Healthcare Statistics Initiative (NHSI) aims to make available objective, timely and reliable healthcare statistics information to meet the need of healthcare policy-makers, planners and managers, the healthcare industry community, the health professionals and researchers. It seeks to accomplish this through a family of healthcare surveys that systematically access available data from multiple and varied sources in our healthcare system or otherwise design and conduct sample surveys to collect previously data.
The NHSI’s intention is to put as much statistical information as possible about Malaysia healthcare in the public domain in a useful, easy to understand and credible manner.

  • Document the availability and distribution of healthcare facilities, services, workforce and medical technology (drugs and devices) in the country.
  • Document the use of healthcare and medical technology (drugs and devices), and identify disparities in the use by socioeconomic status, geography, and other population characteristics.
  • Monitor trends in healthcare delivery and use of medical technology (drugs and devices).
  • Provide information for making changes in healthcare policies and programmes.
  • Evaluate the impact of healthcare policies and programmes.
