    Health at a Glance 2015: Key findings for Japan

    The quality of health care is generally very good in Japan but further improvement can be made in the management of diabetes, treatment of heart attack (AMI), and cancer control. In Japan, per capita spending on pharmaceuticals is the second highest in the OECD after the United States. Spending on pharmaceuticals could be reduced by increasing the share of the generic market.

    OECD Reviews of Health Care Quality: Japan 2015 - Raising Standards

    This report reviews the quality of health care in Japan, and seeks to highlight best practices, and provides a series of targeted assessments and recommendations for further improvements to quality of care. One of Japan’s foremost policy challenges is to create an economically-active ageing society. Excellent health care will be central to achieving this. A striking feature of the Japanese health system is its openness and flexibility. In general, clinics and hospitals can provide whatever services they consider appropriate, clinicians can credential themselves in any speciality and patients can access any clinician without referral. These arrangements have the advantage of accessibility and responsiveness. Such light-touch governance and abundant flexibility, however, may not best meet the health care needs of a super-ageing society. Japan needs to shift to a more structured health system, separating out more clearly different health care functions (primary care, acute care and long-term care, for example) to ensure that peoples’ needs can be met by the most appropriate service, in a coordinated manner if needed. As this differentiation occurs, the infrastructure to monitor and improve the quality of care must simultaneously deepen and become embedded at every level of governance –institutionally, regionally and nationally.

    OECD Employment Outlook 2015 - Key findings for Japan (in Japanese)

    日本は世界金融・経済危機を最も上手く乗り切った先進国の一つとして際立っている。生産年齢人口に対する就業率は金融危機直前でOECD平均を既に4.4%ポイント上回っており、この優位は2014年第4四半期までに7.1%ポイントに増加した(OECD地域で65.9%に対し日本は73.0%)。就業率が最近上昇した一つの理由は、より多くの女性が働けるよう促している政府の政策がかなりの成功を収めていることにある。
