[JETRO San Francisco Webinar] Introduction to Japan’s Digital Healthcare Market

Sep 30, 2016

Japan’s healthcare industry faces a unique challenge: to provide care for its large elderly population while helping contribute to an “ageless” society where seniors can live independent, active roles in their home and community.


To meet this challenge, Japan is turning to healthcare technology for solutions. As a result, Japan’s digital healthcare market is growing expansively, with new challenges and business opportunities emerging each year.


This webinar will serve as an introductory course to Japan’s digital healthcare market. It will highlight current trends in the healthcare technology, recent policy changes to increase foreign competition, and possible entry methods into the Japanese market.






The Introduction to Japan's Digital Healthcare Market webinar will run Thursday, October 6, 2016, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PDT. The webinar is online and accessible from any internet-connected device. 


This online webinar will be held in English and will include both slides and a verbal delivery. The webinar is limited to the first 100 attendees, so early sign up is strongly recommended.  



Through this webinar, attendees will:

  1. Gain insight on Japan's digital healthare market through emerging industry players and incumbents 
  2. Learn more about recent policy changes in the digital health business space, including changes under the Government HQ's for Healthcare Policy
