We propose to work with Japanese experts to write a white paper that describes the current state of the Japanese health system using an accountable care conceptual framework. Discussants will be given the draft paper on the Japanese experience with accountable care to read prior to the conference. After a short overview of the WISH conceptual framework and accountable care, discussants will discuss the current state of the Japanese health system using the accountable care conceptual framework. Attendees will work in smaller groups, focusing on one conceptual pillar of the accountable care framework, to develop potential solutions to strengthen accountability in the Japanese health system.Lead Author Presentation:Mark McClellan and Chiaki Sato

Day 2: Payment Reform with Bio-Medical Innovation

8:30 a.m. Opening Remarks Mark McClellan, Initiative on Innovation and Value for Healthcare, Economic Studies, The Brookings InstitutionHideaki Shiroyama, Dean for Graduate School of Public Policy, The University of Tokyo
8:45 a.m. Panel Discussion: Post-market Evidence Generation and the Learning Health Care SystemModerator: Gregory DanielThe post-market environment, which begins with the regulatory approval of a product and extends throughout its clinical use, is becoming an increasingly fertile ground for research and study. Emerging safety surveillance networks such as FDA’s Sentinel Initiative are being established to track the safety of drugs and devices. Registries that collect data on patient outcomes are becoming a more routine part of care. Comparative effectiveness research holds the promise of giving patients, providers, and payers better information on what treatments work. This panel will review recent developments in these areas and discuss how they can contribute to a truly learning health care system.
