ABSTRACT

After long term-care insurance was introduced, about four years had passed. Among these benefits, medical devices benefits referenced the Japan's and German's extremely much before setting the benefits up. These two nation's standards or guidelines of medical devices benefits had focused on seven core points, those are facilities & manpower, subjects & the limit of benefit price, items of medical devices, service delivery types(lending, selling), offering payment, cleaning & disinfection of the devices, and quality management. The purpose of this study is comparing standards or guidelines of medical devices benefits in Korea, Japan and german, which is focused on the seven core points. Therefore, this study find out how the guidelines or standards will be revised for improving the quality of medical devices benefits. Our standards or guidelines had some shortcomings in manpower, monitoring of cleaning & disinfection, quality control of medical device itself, and counselling services. Besides, we need to diversify our medical device products so as to meet subjects demands and to develop quality control methods.
