(Upcoming event) 66th Breakfast Meeting: Big Data in Healthcare Systems – The Danish Experience and its Implications for Japan – (December 26, 2017)

In May 2017, the Japanese Government enacted the Amended Act on the Protection of Personal Information, and a system reform notice was published promoting the use of the My Number System. On the other hand, Japan has also enacted regulations that set out legal requirements for the more stringent management of medical information as personal information containing descriptions that require special consideration. That said, in light of the establishment of the Act on the Next-Generation Medical Infrastructure in April 2017, the use of healthcare-related Big Data is gaining more and more attention among not only in medical institutions, but also those hoping to use it for research and development or to foster new industries.

For this breakfast meeting, HGPI will host two special guests – Dr. Ole Mølskov Bech, Chairman of European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, Japan (EFPIA Japan); and Prof. Hiroaki Miyata, Professor of Health Policy and Management at the School of Medicine at Keio University. Dr. Bech, a doctor from Denmark, will deliver a lecture on how his home country uses Big Data in its medical information system. Prof. Miyata will talk about the outlook for healthcare information systems in Japan.

Since 1968, Denmark has identified people using personal numbers (called “CPR”). Since the implementation of the CPR system, Denmark has required that each person’s medical information be associated with their CPR. This medical information is now being used by not only medical institutions, but also private enterprises. At the Breakfast Meeting, we will deepen our understanding of the status of the CPR system and current issues relevant to the field of healthcare, and we will discuss ways to utilize healthcare-related Big Data in Japan.

-A part of this meeting will be conducted in English (simultaneous interpretation services will not be provided).
