[Registration closed] Evening Seminar—The Future of Telemedicine and Online Medical Consultations (September 26, 2018)

Registration has been closed.

In order to achieve sustainable healthcare, momentum is growing worldwide for the use of novel technologies and innovations (health technologies) that improve productivity in medical settings and making medical system design more effective and efficient.

This year in Japan, the revision of medical service fees included a number of newly established evaluation criteria relating to medical ICT, focused on telemedicine and online medical consultations in particular, and complete with guidelines on their proper implementation. What’s more, the Basic Policy Economic and Fiscal Management and Reform 2018 or so-called Big-boned Policy adopted this past June by the Cabinet, clearly states the goal of furthering online medical consultations including online drug administration guidance, by promoting the inclusion of safety and effectiveness assessments in future revisions of the medical service fees from 2020 onward.

Amidst such significant initiatives and actions surrounding telemedicine and online medical consultations, anticipation is rapidly growing about the form under which related services would be rolled out to the public. The upcoming Evening Seminar will bring together people involved on a daily basis with the issues related to telemedicine and online medical consultations as well as active in promotion, to share first-hand experiences. Through their discussions, we hope to clarify why telemedicine and online medical consultations are important, and how they should be used and managed in the future.
