Efforts for ESG

~ [S] Human resource development and comprehensive regional care in the Super-aging society ~

In the future, it will be difficult for many elderly people to be on their deathbed in the hospital. So, we will accumulate "nursing" knowledge and human resources doing the service to meet their needs for terminal-care in their homes and nursing care facilities.

What can you do for a person who is on one's deathbed?

Let's change from feeling awkward to having confidence for end-of-life

May everyone can feel, "I'm glad I've been alive."

May everyone can meet the end of their life with proud.

When there is someone who understands one's suffering, a person can be peaceful even on one's deathbed.

Everyone from children to the elderly may live calmly despite suffering.

Support each other.

Learn from each other through the community.

Create a sustainable co-exist society.

treatment.

Japan is facing the super-aging society, in which many elderly people are supported by a small number of working-age population. As social resources become ubiquitous and people's bondages in local areas become scarce, more and more people will suffer in obscurity . Consequently, there are limits regarding what traditional social security systems can solve.

In particular, in the face of the suffering of people and their families who have reached the final stage of their lives, various measures have been taken so far, but the current situation is that no drastic solution has been reached. In the future, it will be difficult to to be in the hospital until the end, and it will be necessary to be at home or in nursing care facilities. In fact, the number of people who want to stay at home or in nursing care facilities is increasing, but not all hope will come true for the reasons of limited environment and resources. It is expected that there will be an increasing number of working generations who suffer for balancing work and home nursing care, as well as people who are less connected to the local community and have isolation and fears in their individual lives.

  • LoGo Form's agile style has enabled us to release production environments in just four days from the start of construction. LoGo Form enables multiple-entries, so simultaneous inputs of account information from several ward offices have been carried smoothly.

In addition, we were able to reject the input regarding "No one-byte character and lowercase" in the JBA format, which dramatically improved the granularity and accuracy of the transfer data. In addition, the risk of double payments can be reduced by the multiple input check function, and we can enter data safely.

  • EPS = Profit attributable to owners of parent / number of shares
  • Profit is estimated by applying the revised forecasts for FY2020 announced on May 12 and this time.
  • The number of shares is calculated by applying the weighted-average number of shares (after deducting treasury shares) for FY2020 estimated on the above days when we revised financial forecasts.
  • The current percentage of profit attributable to owners of the parent does not match the simple percentage of shareholding due to the attribution of costs related to the acquisition of shares of TrustBank.
