Taiwan has been called upon by the US to "revamp" its National Health Insurance (NHI) framework to reduce barriers to the introduction of new medical technologies. In a "white paper" issued on May 30, the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) in Taiwan says that the country's financial deficit is threatening the current success of the NHI.

Taiwan's ministry of economic affairs (MOEA) has welcomed AMCHAM's recommendations, which include tightening intellectual property protection, upgrading the public healthcare system and accelerating economic integration with China.
