“Accelerate healthcare innovation through ecosystems”

As we have lived with the COVID-19 pandemic for nearly two years, the critical role digital technology continues to play in delivering healthcare has been highlighted even more than before. To accelerate the drive towards digital innovation in healthcare, developing an ecosystem that goes beyond industries such as pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and information and communication technology to include academia, healthcare professionals, policy makers and patients is anticipated to play an increasingly important role.

In this context, the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) launched its Healthcare x Digital (HxD) ecosystem initiative in 2019, providing a forum for global healthcare companies to connect with tech companies, entrepreneurs and innovators who can present leading-edge ideas. The ACCJ has also hosted pitch events throughout a year in 2021, focusing on key challenges faced by the Japanese medical community including “the disparity in the quality of healthcare between urban and rural areas,” “promoting the use of digital technology in medical institutions,” and “medical decision ownership by patients and consumers.”

AstraZeneca launched its open innovation eco system “i2.JP” in November 2020, as part of its continued efforts to realize a “patient Centric business model”, “value added services for healthcare professionals, “incubation of health-tech startups,” as well as addressing “healthcare challenges in regions and society.” At its one year anniversary, the i2.JP has grown to become a significant ecosystem with more than 120 partners consistently conducting business matching to initiate multiple projects.

Aligned by similar aspirations, we are pleased to announce that the two ecosystems will come together to host an event “promoting innovative digital solutions by leveraging the ecosystems in Japan.” At this event, we will also introduce some examples already underway in Japan and internationally to further discuss future directions, key challenges, and how to overcome these challenges together.
We look forward to welcoming many of you to this inspiring event.
