Chile looks at non-AUGE coverage:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Chile has expressed general satisfaction at the results of an assessment of the quality of primary and secondary care services not covered by the AUGE "explicit healthcare guarantees" programme, but acknowledges that some areas will need improving. Low rates of cervical smear (Pap) screening and apparent deficiencies in the care of diabetes and hypertension are a source of concern, said the government's subsecretary of healthcare networks, Ricardo Fabrega. In addition, progress in providing hip replacement surgery (in age groups exempt from AUGE) had "slightly levelled out", he said. Despite this, "the results of this study refute suggestions that Plan AUGE would result in deficiencies in areas of care that are not yet included in the programme," said Mr Fabrega.
