Annual trend in 53 pediatric cases of Bacterial meningitis
From 2000 to the present, we have created a database of childhood onset bacterial meningitis. In recent years in Japan, the number of cases of childhood meningitis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae has decreased due to vaccination, but the incidence of newborns due to GBS has increased and becoming a major problem.
Creating Shared Medical Value (CSMV)
In 2021, pre-COVID-19 medical value was already at stake. So where should new normal medical care (N2MC) go? Let's discuss based on the strategic theory of shared value of Michael Porter and Mark Kramer.
