Telemedicine services are gaining entry into Japanese hospitals. Royal Philips recently announced its deal with Showa University in Japan in order to launch the first telemedicine intensive care program (eICU) at Showa Koto Toyosu Hospital and Showa University Hospital. This program will reduce mortality rates and increase savings as well as case volume.
