The differences between care in the West and in Taiwan may, at times, seem quite pronounced. The doctor-patient relationship differs significantly and cultural differences abound in even the most modern health care settings. The infrastructure for health care in Taiwan is dependent on National Health Insurance, which covers most of the island's 22 million people. As a result, doctors and hospital-based outpatient clinics are under enormous pressure to see large volumes of patients in relatively short periods of time. It isn't unusual to find doctors seeing as many as 30 patients an hour in the largest and busiest specialties. (Many of these patients are simply renewing prescriptions.) Expect to wait in crowded, uncomfortable waiting areas to see your clinic doctor.
