Medical Excellence JAPAN (MEJ) was founded in 2013 with the aim to promote medicine and healthcare abroad based on the Japan Revitalization Strategy in 2013. The first Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Shuzo Yamamoto, connected the medical community, the industry, and the government and established the foundations for the international deployment which lead to steady developments of the both inbound and outbound projects.
The following CEO, Dr. Tatsuya Kondo, lead research projects to determine the strengths and the tasks of this field, and planned a new mid-term business project in 2021. One of the new projects is the “MEJ Four Dimensional Health Innovation Group”, perceiving two dimensional as domestic relations, three dimensional as expanding to international levels, and four dimensional as including the time base. Here, the medical community, the industry, the government, and the academia will work together to tackle complex issues in the field of healthcare. MEJ has an epic conception of being a leading hub for the innovation of medicine and healthcare including their systems in Japan, and internationally cooperating through the innovating hub of each countries and regions, or the Medical Excellence Organizations (MExx) .Dr. Kondo had been driving the first task, the innovation for electronic charts, and was about to finalize the proposal when he passed away.
I will carry out the intentions of Dr. Kondo, and will intensify the cooperation between medical community, the industry, the government, and the academia, and strongly propose international deployments of Japanese medicine based on our world-class universal health care insurance system. The Four Dimensional Health Innovation Group will apply the prospective of regulatory science and seek for solutions in the field of medicine and healthcare such as the digital transformations in the field which have become tangible in the current pandemic. I will do my very best to contribute to medicine, healthcare, and the world.
On behalf of our organization, I am hoping for your future cooperation for the achievement of our goals.
