MHIR provides central and local government units with support for the creation of policies related to medical and nursing care. Having established a team that handles medical care policies implemented by government units responsible for social security policies, the institute is undertaking studies and analyses of situations required when considering systemic reforms, studies and research of overseas practices worth considering in connection with the creation of new systems, diverse kinds of studies and research designed to promote the medical care industry, and the leveraging of findings from such studies and research to provide support to local government units with respect to the creation of policies.

Providing Consulting Functions for Medical Care Institutions

Leveraging its abundant knowledge regarding the medical care field, Mizuho undertakes diverse consulting projects on behalf of medical care institutions. As MHBK has established a study team focused on the medical care field and MHRI employs specialized consultants qualified to meet customer needs, Mizuho is promoting concerted Group–wide efforts to promote the provision of medical care–related consulting services.

Efforts to Improve Employee Health and Optimize Medical Care Expenses

Leveraging the know–how it has accumulated in the course of such activities as those to create and operate medical care expense analysis systems and systems for medical care insurance providers, MHIR has developed its unique "healthage" software—which enables the analysis of medical care and health information to gain a clear understanding of such factors as those related to lifestyles, health conditions, and medical expenses as well as to make comparisons between occupational categories and regions—and it uses this software and other tools to provide consulting services, including preparation of "Data Health Plans" as provided for in the government's " Japan Revitalization Strategy," to medical care insurance providers. The institute has established a research group, including specialist experts, to undertake the development of data analysis methods designed to employ that software for the purposes of promoting better health and optimizing medical care expenses, and this research group is moving ahead with its activities.

Specific examples of activities under way to facilitate this transformation include collaborating with the Support Organization for Transformation of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing sectors; regional financial institution; and local governments as well as establishing sixth industry funds for the agriculture, forestry, and fishing sectors.
