International Collaboration

International Collaboration

Learning from the Japanese health system is useful for the world, and learning from the health systems of other countries is useful for Japan.
We are working on international collaborative projects to learn from others and share information about our own.
We assess the quality of care and then compare them between countries.
This work can help physicians and policymakers worldwide in improving their respective healthcare systems.


Quality of Care Assessment

There is a large variation in the quality of care. Visualizing the quality of care from data leads to quality improvement. We assess the quality of care targeting chronic kidney disease, which is a common, significant concern for individuals and society.
We collaborate with the University of Michigan to conduct an international comparison of the quality of care, to extract the common international issues and issues specific to each country.
