Our Initiatives3 : GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
By promoting the adoption of our visual field perimeters, we aim to increase opportunities for individuals to undergo visual field tests. This, in turn, facilitates the early detection, regular monitoring, and treatment of various eye diseases, including glaucoma.
Our GAP business has been selected for the Digital Implementation Acceleration Project in Ehime Prefecture. As a pilot implementation to promote early detection of glaucoma*1, we have been conducting visual field tests with our perimeter "GAP/GAP-screener"*2 at the health screenings organized by Iyo City, Ehime Prefecture.
We have raised awareness among 16,183 households residing in Iyo-city by distributing flyers through newspaper inserts and sending them to applicants of health screening, informing them about the opportunity to receive a complimentary “visual field test."
|Examination Date||Total Number of Examinations|
|2022||August 18th / 26th / 31st
September 1st / 8th / 14th / 28th / 29th
October 21st / 22nd
|707 individuals (as of the end of October 2022)|
|2023||May 19th / 23rd
June 4th / 15th / 30th
|86 individuals (as of June 30, 2023)|
Beyond promoting visual field tests, this project also plans to utilize examination data to support various impact analyses. These include improvements in community health, extension of working life, and reduction of medical costs. In collaboration with the specialists in big data analysis in the medical field at Global Health Consulting Japan Co., Ltd., we aim to conduct a long-term, multifaceted evaluation of these effects.
Operating within Ehime Prefecture, this project serves as a support system for future-oriented challenges from various angles. It stems from the collaborative efforts of three key players: companies offering digital solutions, local businesses, and administrative bodies. In response to diverse regional challenges across various industries, Ehime Prefecture calls for project proposals from private businesses, including consortium. Proposals with high feasibility for implementing digital technologies and facilitating lateral expansion within the prefecture are then selected.
