In Taiwan, all hospitals are given accreditation by the Taiwan Joint Commission on Medical Accreditation. This organization helps in maintaining doctor standards and assuring medical and health care quality in the hospitals. In Taiwanese hospitals, the standard of healthcare services is maintained quite high in order to receive higher accreditation. If the accreditation standards are high, then more subsidies will be received for that particular hospital and its concerned facilities. This helps to ensure that a particular standard of healthcare providers is maintained throughout the country. Taiwan is the only country in Asia to receive the recognition for Plastic Surgery Innovation from the Society of American Plastic Surgeons.
In a bid to promote medical tourism, the Taiwan government has also recently lifted its travel restrictions for Chinese tourists. This will help in bringing more health tourists to the country, thus promoting the industry of medical tourism.
