Japan is focusing on healthcare reform to meet the future challenges facing its rapidly aging population. The forum will explore what lessons in healthcare reform in Japan could be applied to the U.S. model. They will also look at what possible impact and opportunities will these reforms have on U.S. companies involved in the healthcare industry.
