Japan had the third highest GDP worth about $4.1 trillion accounting for 5.2% in $73 trillion global GDP.
Japan is the third largest country in the healthcare services market and most healthcare spending is funded by the government through the National Health Insurance (NHI) or Employees’ Health Insurance programs. All residents in Japan are covered in one of the two public insurance systems. The NHI covers 70% of the Japanese population. Some citizens also opt for insurance offered by private companies.

Hospitals and outpatient centers are medical facilities that provide diagnostic and medical treatment to patients with a wide range of medical conditions. Outpatient care centers offer medical care or treatment that does not require any overnight stay in a hospital or medical facility.

Shared Medical Appointments was the most recent trend observed in the hospitals and outpatient centers market. The shared medical appointments (SMA) model is a model generally defined as multiple patients being seen as a group by a multi-disciplinary medical care team for follow-up or routine care. It is being adopted by hospitals to create awareness and counsel individual patients dealing with similar medical conditions. The SMA supplements the traditional physician-patient appointment. SMAs provide individual evaluation and disease management for each patient at the same time that they provide counseling to the patient within a group setting. SMAs are currently used to address diabetes, asthma, ulcerative colitis, MS, cancer, HIV, menopause, insomnia and stress.
