At present, the contradiction between people's growing demand for basic public health services and the unbalanced and insufficient development of basic public health services is becoming increasingly acute. Analyzing the research status and the latest progress in this field is of great significance to improve the level of basic medical public health services in various countries. This paper takes 5610 related studies of web of science from 2007 to 2020 as the research object, and uses CiteSpace, SPSS and other software to conduct co word analysis, literature cluster analysis and factor analysis. The results and conclusions are as follows: (1) There are great differences in the research and development level of basic medical public health services in the world, and the development efficiency is low. The country with the highest level of theory and technology development is the United States, followed by Canada and China; (2) In chronological order: the results of the frontier analysis of basic medical and health services in different periods have a strong inheritance relationship. The core evolution path is: Research on basic medical service level and medical quality in grass-roots communities → research on advanced life support theory and technology research on higher-level and higher-quality intelligent medical services; (3) The research on basic medical and health services has attracted a high degree of attention, mainly including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, medical services, emergency medical treatment and medical education.
