Medtech and a Vibrant Japan: The Role of Medical Technology in Healthcare Spending, Workforce Productivity and Economic Growth

cover of Medtech and a Vibrant Japan

Japan is increasingly looking for ways to better harness the potential of its existing workforce via initiatives that promote healthy aging, increase workforce participation, and retain skilled labor. Healthcare innovations that allow for preventive interventions, early diagnosis, and improved patient mobility and independence are in line with these goals. While there are many pre-emptive levers that can be pulled to enable this – such as diet, exercise and management of mental health – this white paper seeks to investigate the impact of medical technology in achieving these goals.
