Distance to Quality-Eight Strategies to Upgrade Health Care in Taiwan's Remote Areas Our strategies focused on localizing quality medical and health care. We faced and overcame many logistical obstacles as we implemented these eight strategies for rural and offshore island health care:
*Localizing offshore health care;
*Localizing rural health care;
*Providing support from medical centers;
*Digitizing medical information and completing the transition to electronic medical records (EMRs);
*Implementing mobile health care and the National Health Insurance Integrated Delivery System;
*Providing adequate funding for areas lacking accessible health care resources through NHI and other government agencies;
*Establishing a talent training and retention program; and
*Expanding the land, sea and air emergency medical transport.

We hope that through this book, more people can learn of and even benefit from Taiwan’s overall health care development experiences as well as its efforts to build quality systems in the hard-to-reach communities. See attachments for further information:
