Japan is the longevity country. More than 20 percent of the population is over 65 years of age. Age, of course, can come with some health problems. Once an elderly person develops a certain health problem, systematic management that is tailored to the individual will be required.
In addition to the individual aspect, the social impact of certain medical problems is also important. For example, more than 4.6 million people—about 15 percent of those over 65 years of age in Japan—suffer from dementia. Dementia has become a very important issue in medical treatment and social problems. In internal medicine, we provide professional medical care that has four features:
