    To make “Super Aged Society

    a Fulfilling Future thorough Home Medical Care

  • OUTLINE

    We are Specialized in Home Medical Care.

    We are the Largest Home Medical Care Provider in Tokyo Metropolitan Area

    since 2006


    We are the largest home medical care provider in Tokyo.
    We have 11 clinics in Tokyo Metropolitan Area, and provide comprehensive medical care for 24 hours for the patients who have difficulties to go to hospital by themselves.

     

    We started running the first home care clinic at the center of Tokyo in 2006 and we open the new clinic almost every year.
    Now, 76 doctors and 100 co-medicals work together and always support about 4 thousands elderly, patients at their terminal stage or patients with special medical needs.
     

    All of our clinics are specialized in Home Medical Care and certified by the government as "High Performance Home Medical Care Clinic" and "Home Palliative Care Enhancement Clinic". That means we have enough power to support patients for 24 hours and satisfactory track records of emergency visits and end-of-life care at home.

    We support 5.550 Patients at homes through 125.040 visits by doctors /year. 2.420 Patients newly started home care/year and 1.040 Patients passed away/year.

     

    (from 01/01/2017 to 31/12/2017)

  • HOME MEDICAL CARE

    We visit Patients' Home.

    We Visit Patients’ Home regularly, and Support All of Life at Home

    to support patients who have difficulties to go to hospital


    We visit patients' homes and provide comprehensive and systematic health care.
    Most patients are in a situation that is difficult to improve their conditions or functions, and many of them live the final stage of life.

    Therefore, we provide not only treatment of diseases, but also support their better life with disease and disorders.

     

    In addition to disease management, we provide preventive care, nutritional care, dementia care, palliative care, terminal care and totally support to stay at home until the end.


    Human mortality rate is 100%, and we will certainly die someday.

    Our mission is to make it a satisfactory final chapter, not a tragedy.

    Everyday, 36 cars run around the Tokyo with doctors and nurses, and we run over 360,000 km/year.

  • Multi-professional work

    Multi-Occupations provide

    Comprehensive Care for 24-hours.

    We provide Comprehensive Medical Care by Multi-Occupations for 24 hours

    Professionals respond patients needs as a team


    It is difficult for a doctor alone to make patients happy.
    To keep living well with disease and disorders, medical care is necessary, but it is not enough to support their live.

     
    We cooperate with multi-occupations to reliably respond not only to apparent needs but also to potential needs.
    Thereby helping to improve the life of patients and their families,
    we support to make the life of patients and their families better as a team.

    1. Nutrition Support Team

    The biggest risk factor for the elderly is "malnutrition". We will improve nutritional status through team support, maintain good oral function, prevent aspiration pneumonia. Through the prevention of sarcopenia and flailty, we contricbute to the extension of healthy life.

    2. Dementia Support Team


    With age, the prevalence of dementia increases exponentially. Most elderly people live with dementia. We think Dementia is not just a disease but an aspect of aging. We propose a better life for patients and families by environmental adjustment and care rather than treatment by medications.

    3. Palliative Care Support Team


    The biggest cause of death among Japanese is cancer. At the final stage of cancer, various symptoms such as pain and malaise appear. Pain also occurs mentally, socially, spiritually. We certainly relax them and promise them a calm days. Also, dysfunction of heart or lung needs special support by the palliative care.

    4. Wound Care Support Team

    With the deterioration of the general condition, elderly people have high risks of skin troubles and pressure ulcers. It also becomes difficult to cure them. We are sure to treat with multi-occupational team.

  • supporting network

    We enhance the Home Medical Care

    throughout the Metropolitan Area.

    We also Back up other Clinics in Tokyo Metropolitan Area for 24 hours

    Home medical care as "community protecting infrastructure"


    To support super-aged society, home medical care is essential function of the community. However, few doctors engage in home medical care. Many of the GP clinics in charge of home medical care are operated by single doctor, and the obligation of "24 hours correspondence" is a heavy burden for them and a big entry barrier for other GPs.

     

    We have a specialized team in charge of overtime home medical examination (emergency visit). To provide the function of this team to other GP in the metropolitan area, we will destroy the "24-hour response" barrier of home care and intend to increase the number of GPs who engage in home care.

    Four doctors on weekends and two doctors at night time are waiting for the patients calls in the clinic with clinical assistants and nurses.
    We respond rapdly to calls from patients 24 hours a day.

  • social education

    We nurture a New Community.

    To Create the Better Communities

    "Home Medical Care College"

     

    We are hosting “HOME MEDICAL CARE COLLEGE” for multi-occupations who engage in home medical care.

    This project was started eight years ago as a corporate social responsibility. 14,200 students are registered, and a total of 58,000 people were receiving a lecture.

     

    In this college , 30 courses have been held at the 6 campuses.

    The lectures from the top runners stimulate our intellectual curiosity, and "Circle of Learning" spread to areas and occupations.

    Through the leanings, we can share the issues, concepts, knowledge and skills of the home medical care.


    We are now beginning to involve residents in this 'circle of learning'.

    (above) Medical & Care Cafe ADACHI, one of the professionals community in Tokyo Metropolitan Area. We gather monthly and discuss about the issue of their neighbors.

     

    (below) Shimbashi Campus, the main campus of Home medical care college. We open the lecture almost monthly and about 200 students attend the each lecture.

    We not only contribute to patient's happiness but also fulfill accountability to taxpayers and insurers by providing high cost-effective services.

    1. Suppression of Emergency Transportation

    We keep patient away from ambulance by preventive medical care (prevention of onset, early detection and early treatment at home through 24-hour responce, and preparation of emergency instruction) and advanced care planning.
    We are corresponding to
    40,980 patient call /year (Equivalent to 16.0% of total annual ambulance dispatch of the elderly aged 75 or older of Tokyo Emergency Headquarters),

    12,589 emergent visit /year (Equivalent to 54.5% of total annual emergency patient acceptance in major 6 Tokyo public hospitals), and estimated to be saved over

    10M USD /year (Medical and Ambulance transfer cost).

    2. Suppression of Hospitalization

    Average annual length of hospitalization/patient in one of our facilty:

    23.03(days/patient) to 2.30(days/patient)

    We achieve 90.0% reduction.

    JUN SASAKI M.D.

    To make "Super Aged Society" a Better Future.

    Jun Sasaki M.D./Founder and CEO of Yushoukai Medical Ins.

     

    What do you imagine when you hear the word "Super-Aged Society"?
    How many people can confidently say that it is a bright future?
     

    Japan has already become "a Super Aged Society" and is becoming "a Ultra Aged Society".
     

    Currently, Japan's population aging ratio (population over 65 years old) is around 28%, but in the future it reaches equilibrium with 47% and the total population is expected to decrease to about two-thirds in 2060.
    It will be such an era that one in two people will become elderly.
     

    We have conventional medical system centered on acute hospitals and social security system premised on inter generational support. They are functioning now, but we are concerned about sustainability.
     

    There is absolutely a shortage of nursing resources supporting the elderly people, and many elderly can not fully finish the satisfying life.

     

    Everyone has wished to be healthy and to live longer.

    Longevity means a pleasant achievement that many people can realize it.
    It is very sad that it is not welcomed.

     

    We are not pessimistic about the future.
    We are actively working to make it a better society. I think this is the responsibility for our future generations.

     

    The answer for this issue is not on the extension line so far.
     

    Why not throw away the existing values ​​with economic growth?

    And let's pursue the real "richness of life" by creating a new community that all the people can live with with peace of mind and satisfaction until the last moment.

     

    Through provision of high quality home medical care, we will actively work on creating a mechanism optimized for the new society of the 22nd century.

    The Aging of Urban Areas is the first experience in the world.

    Tokyo is Facing the Problems due to Healthcare for Elderly.
    Elderly people are difficult to go to hospital.Health management is difficult, and it is easy to suddenly change / deteriorate.
    The number of elderly people who use ambulances or are hospitalized is rapidly increasing. People with Dementia is also increasing and medical expenses for the elderly are also increasing rapidly.
     

    In 2060

    -Aging Rate 40% (over 65 years old population)
    -Population Reduction Rate 28% (compared to 2010)
    -Working Population 47%
    -Under 20 years old 13%
    -Dementia People 13%


     

  • 4 Big Problems Japan/Tokyo is Now Facing

    【1】Rapid Increasing of Social Security Expenses
    【2】Rapid Increasing of Hospitalization of Elderly.
    【3】Rapid Increasing of Death
    【4】Rapid Increasing of Dementia

    【1】 Rapid Increasing of Social Security Expenses

    Medical expenses are increased by 1 trillion yen and Nursing care expenses by 500 billion yen, every year.

    And 50% of medical expenses �are used by elderly people.

     

    【2】 Rapid Increasing of Hospitalization of Elderly

    Most of the elderly medical expenses are due to hospitalization.

    Elderly people aged 75 and older use an average medical cost of 7000$y.
    -Increase in chronic disease
    -Hospital bed as evacuation destination for elderly
    -Life extension treatment
    -Death in the hospital

     

    Emergency transport of elderly people seven times in 10 years
     

     

    【3】 Rapid Increasing of Death

    In Japan, 1.3 million people died annually, and 80% die in hospitals despite 70% of Japanese want to spend the last at home.

    Hospital death can not be increased any further.
    There will be a shortage of 400,000 deaths in 2040.
