  • August 31, 2022

Medical Data Vision Co., Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President: Hiroyuki Iwasaki, hereinafter “MDV”), which aims to unify medical data, is expanding the insurance claim data volume to reach approximately 18 million of patients’ data into MDV analyzer, the company’s web tool that allows users to easily analyze the number of patients by indication, duration of prescription, dosage, etc. based on one of the largest medical database in Japan.

MDV and DeNA Co., Ltd. (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President and CEO: Shingo Okamura, hereinafter “DeNA”) entered into a business alliance in May 2022. The collaboration aims at enhancing the database available in both companies by adding the insurer database owned by DeNA to the Health Insurance society database of MDV where already 7.84 million patients are stored as of the end of July.

Regrouping Health Insurance database of MDV and DeNA will include data on self-employed persons and other individuals covered by the National Health Insurance, as well as data on persons aged 75 or older who are covered by the Medical Care System for Elderly. These are new features to MDV Analyzer. By combining both companies’ database, a volume of 18 million patients’ insurance claim will complete MDV’s hospital database covering all ages with 40.42 million patients. By further enriching the database for the elderly population, we aim at creating the largest hospital and Health Insurance database in Japan to further enlarge the scope of analysis.

Features of the combined database

  • Twice as many the number of patient insurance claim data than before
  • More detailed data on elderly and latter-stage elderly with more refined prevalence
  • Possibility to track transfer information between clinic and hospital for a wide range of diseases from acute to chronic, from severe to minor (e.g., prescription continuation, prescription change, etc)
