CMIC HOLDINGS Co., Ltd.(Head Office: Tokyo, Minato-ku, Representative Director & CEO Kazuo Nakamura, hereafter “CMIC”)and 3Rock KK(Head Office: Tokyo, Shibuya-ku, Representative Director & President Jeffrey B. Schnack, hereafter “3Rock”)established a new joint venture “C3KK” on April 25th, 2018 to assist the promotion of community-based healthcare.


As Japanese society approaches its super-aging peak, responsibility for care of its citizens is shifting steadily to the local government level. Each prefecture has been required to complete its own grand design for both general community healthcare and integrated elderly community care, and implementation of these plans will bring unprecedented change to the system. The national government is also working to shift the focus of elderly care from a “medical system” to a more robust “healthcare system” in order to improve healthy aging and longevity. The promotion of community-based care will be an important factor in quickly solving the various problems existing in each local area.

New company business

Leveraging CMIC’s strong expertise in research and 3Rock’s highly specialized consulting know-how, C3KK will identify medical challenges unique to each region, and not only suggest solutions, but also create networks of interested stakeholders to carry out activities that bring real change in the healthcare field.
C3KK will first consult with local authorities to clarify their specific healthcare issues in therapeutic areas with a large effect on health and longevity (diabetes, dementia, oncology, osteoporosis, etc,) and determine a set of strategic solutions to those problems. Then in the implementation phase, C3KK will create and engage a consortia of stakeholders (including government agencies, university hospitals, healthcare companies, medical professionals, and civic groups) to assist in supporting those efforts. Importantly, we will also track health-economic outcomes and generate real-world data in order to create best practices that can be shared with other communities. Through C3KK, both CMIC and 3Rock will contribute to creation of a society in which everyone can receive superior healthcare services.
