Details The Fukuoka-City Information Platform for Community-based Integrated Care is an advanced big data platform that aggregates information on the health and medical services of Fukuoka citizens. Fukuoka City is engaged in a joint project with Kyushu University to promote policy making through a large-scale real-world data analysis. This paper describes the framework for this cooperative effort and the features of the analytical platform.
The platform allows longitudinal investigation of the complex association between various aspects of healthcare, such as medical procedures, examinations, interviews, medical costs, long-term care certifications, and care costs. The platform can provide valuable public-health information because it is relatively large for a single database, and because it allows analysis of data across multiple domains and tracing of individuals over time.
