Table of Contents


•This study offers a qualitative evaluation of healthcare information technology (IT) policies, initiatives, and regulations across Japan and South Korea.
•The opinions presented in this study are based on in-depth interviews conducted with key opinion leaders (KOLs), such as representatives of health ministries and standards organizations across the countries in scope.
•Additionally, secondary sources, such as Frost & Sullivan content, Ministry of Health (MOH) Web sites, and public databases, were used for input.

CEO’s Perspective

The quest for sustainable business models has led to a stagnation in technological innovation, particularly among Japanese companies.
Government ministries are helping local vendors export solutions so that they are able to build a sustainable business model.
Simultaneously, regulations that encourage home care and remote care are being considered or established by several agencies.
The extent of data ownership that consumers should enjoy is a key concern for both healthcare providers and governments.
The goal of data integration initiatives is to drive predictive analysis and insight. Companies are investing in sophisticated analytics and supporting business models.

The Last Word

Healthcare providers are demonstrating some resistance to e-Health due to the associated transformation of the revenue model from providing treatment to ensuring wellness and prevention. Propagators of e-Health are focusing on its cost and quality benefits to drive adoption as there are no clear mandates in Asia-Pacific to keep the patient away from the hospital.
Developed countries understand the need for standardization and are taking the requisite measures. However, there is an urgent need to educate the provider community.
Care coordination that focuses on the seamless integration of healthcare services beyond the hospital environment and interactions with healthcare providers is emerging as a key area.

Key Questions this Study will Answer

How is the healthcare system structured across the scoped countries?
What are the emerging trends in e-Health and electronic health record (EHR) coverage across countries? How does regional integration affect e-Health and EHR?
What are the current trends in the adoption of healthcare IT standards? What standards are in use at present? What are the drivers and restraints in the adoption of healthcare IT standards?
What is the role of the government in establishing standards? What standards are preferred by vendors and others involved in the healthcare ecosystem?
