As a result of the two-cycle (2015-2016) evaluation of 998 national health check-up institutions above hospital level, the number of excellent institutions increased and the number of unsatisfactory institutions decreased compared to the first period in all types of examinations, including general and infant check-ups.

This is the second time after the 1st cycle (2012-2014) that the evaluation of examination institutions is carried out to improve the quality of health examinations and public satisfaction.

The Ministry of Health and Welfare plans to notify each screening institution of the evaluation results and disclose them on the National Health Insurance Corporation website.

As a result of the second cycle evaluation, the ratio of excellent institutions was 65.2% for general, infant and oral examination institutions, an increase of 8.2%p from 57.0% for the first period, and 0.2% for poor institutions, which decreased by 3.4%p from 3.6% in the first period. .

Also, in the case of 5 major cancers (stomach cancer, liver cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer), excellent organs were 30.5%, an increase of 12.6%p compared to cycle 1, and poor organs were 2.5%, 3.7% compared to cycle 1 (6.2%). %p decreased.

Lim Sook-young, head of the Health Promotion Division of the Ministry of Health and Welfare, said, “We expect that the quality of national health examinations will be improved by ensuring that the people have the right to choose an excellent health examination institution through the disclosure of the evaluation results.”

Director Lim also added, “We plan to continuously improve the examination service by providing incentives (incentives) to excellent institutions and improving the evaluation system, such as management measures for poor institutions.”
