Developing Japan Chapter
MDEpiNet organized a real-world evidence workshop and summit in Japan for clinicians and regulators in January 2019 to discuss the launch of the Japan Chapter at the National Center for Global Health and Medicine, one of three major clinical and research centers in Japan that receives government funding for research. The chapter will have access to insurance claims data in Japan to develop its data model. Collaborations with novel partners like the national surgical registry of Japan are lined up for infrastructure development. Major meetings are planned for winter 2019 to kick start the developmental work.
