This study analyzed the Korean government supported R&D system in healthcare, and compared it with that in US, EU, or Japan.
The outcome of the National Science & Technology Information Service (NTIS) analysis shows that healthcare R&D expenditures occupied 10.1% of total national budget spent on R&D in Korea. It only includes the R&D budget by government but dose not include all the used by the private sector.
While the Ministry of Health & Welfare is a main department for healthcare policies, national R&D in healthcare has been conducted in the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy, in the Ministry of Education, in the Ministry of Health & Welfare, and so on. The Ministry of Education supported 37.8% of healthcare R&D expenditures. The Ministry of Health & Welfare and the ministry of trade, industry, and energy spent 28.5% and 24.2% of total expenditures, separately.
NHI manages the most of healthcare R&D burden in US, and Japan carries forward a scheme to unify management of healthcare R&D projects. The research suggests the unified management system which can control healthcare R&D throughout all ministries of government to conduct R&D efficiently.
