    Journal of the American Medical Directors Association   22 ( 2 ) 329 - 333  2021.02  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    OBJECTIVES: To analyze the association of an incentivization program to promote death outside of hospitals with changes in place of death. DESIGN: A longitudinal observational study using national databases. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Participants comprised Japanese decedents (≥65 years) who had used long-term care insurance services and died between April 2007 and March 2014. METHODS: Using a database of Japanese long-term care insurance service claims, subjects were divided into community-dwelling and residential aged care (RAC) facility groups. Based on national death records, change in place of death after the Japanese government initiated incentivization program was observed using logistic regression. RESULTS: Hospital deaths decreased by 8.7% over time, mainly due to an increase in RAC facility deaths. The incentivization program was more associated with decreased in-hospital deaths for older adults in RAC facilities than community-dwelling older adults. CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: In Japan, the proportion of in-hospital deaths of frail older adults decreased since the health services system introduced the incentivization program for end-of-life care outside of hospitals. The shift of place of death from hospitals to different locations was more prominent among residents of RAC facilities, where informal care from laymen was required less, than among community residents.

  • Effect of reduced formal care availability on formal/informal care patterns and caregiver health: a quasi-experimental study using the Japanese long-term care insurance reform

    Atsushi Miyawaki, Yasuki Kobayashi, Haruko Noguchi, Taeko Watanabe, Hideto Takahashi, Nanako Tamiya

    BMC Geriatrics   20 ( 1 ) 207 - 207  2020.12  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    <title>Abstract</title><sec>
    <title>Background</title>
    It is unclear how formal long-term care (LTC) availability affects formal /informal caregiving patterns and caregiver health. We tested the impact of reduced formal LTC availability on formal LTC service use, intensity of informal caregiving, and caregiver health.


    </sec><sec>
    <title>Methods</title>
    Using a representative, repeated cross-sectional sample of Japanese caregivers providing care to co-resident family members from 2001 to 2016, we applied a difference-in-differences approach by observing caregivers before and after the major reform of the public Japanese LTC insurance (LTCI) in 2006. The reform reduced coverage benefits for non-institutionalized older persons with low care needs, but not for those with high care needs. We analyzed 12,764 caregivers aged ≥30 years (mean age 64.3 ± 11.8 years, 73.5% women) and measured indicators of formal LTC use, hours of informal caregiving, and caregiver self-reported health outcomes after propensity score matching to balance caregivers’ background characteristics.


    </sec><sec>
    <title>Results</title>
    We found the 2006 LTCI reform relatively reduced the use of formal LTC services and relatively increased the percentage of experiencing long hours of informal caregiving (&gt; 3 h per day) among the caregivers for seniors with low care needs compared to those for seniors with high care needs. The effects of the LTCI reform for the caregivers for seniors with low care needs were 2.2 percentage point higher on caregivers’ experiencing poor self-rated health (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.7–3.7; <italic>p</italic> = 0.01), 2.7 percentage point higher on experiencing symptoms of a depressive state (95%CI: 0.5–4.8; <italic>p</italic> = 0.03), and 4.7 percentage point higher on experiencing symptoms of musculoskeletal diseases (95%CI, 3.6–5.7; <italic>p</italic> &lt; 0.001), compared to those for seniors with high care needs.


    </sec><sec>
    <title>Conclusions</title>
    Reduced formal care availability under the Japanese LTCI reform increased hours of informal caregiving corresponding to reduced use of formal LTC and deteriorated multiple dimensions of caregiver health. Our findings may highlight the importance of enhancing the availability of formal LTC services for caregiver health.

    <sec><title>Objective</title>Because married couples have many environmental influences in common, spouses may develop similar diseases. This study aimed to determine the concordance of hypertension, diabetes and dyslipidaemia, which are major risk factors for cardiovascular disease, among married couples in Japan.

  • Individual and regional determinants of long-term care expenditure in Japan: evidence from national long-term care claims

    Xueying Jin, Takahiro Mori, Mikiya Sato, Taeko Watanabe, Haruko Noguchi, Nanako Tamiya

    European Journal of Public Health   30 ( 5 ) 873 - 878  2020.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    <title>Abstract</title>
    <sec>
    <title>Background</title>
    Japan, with the oldest population in the world, faces a financial challenge caused by rising long-term care (LTC) expenditure. For policymakers to address this, it is important that we have a better understanding of how individual and regional characteristics affect LTC expenditure.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title>Methods</title>
    We linked national LTC insurance (LTCI) claim data, covering the entire population who used LTCI services in Japan, with municipality data on an individual level. Individuals 65 years and older (n=3 876 068) who had used LTCI benefits at least once in the fiscal year (FY) 2016 were included. We examined the associations of individual and municipality characteristics regarding supply and demand of healthcare with the LTC expenditures on facility care, home and community care, and total care (the sum of both types of care), after adjusting for regional differences in LTC extra charges.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title>Results</title>
    The following variables were associated with higher total expenditure; at the individual level: female, a higher care-need level, a lower income (0% co-payments) or a facility service user; at the municipality level: municipalities locating in metropolitan areas, with a higher proportion of single elderly households, more doctors per 1000 citizens, more nursing homes per 100 000 LTC benefit users or more outpatient medical spending per citizen ≥75 years old.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title>Conclusions</title>
    As we are able to identify several individual and municipality characteristics associated with higher LTC expenditure in Japan, the study offers insights into dealing with the rapidly growing LTC expenditure.

  • Exercise or sports in midlife and healthy life expectancy: an ecological study in all prefectures in Japan

    Takafumi Monma, Fumi Takeda, Haruko Noguchi, Hideto Takahashi, Taeko Watanabe, Nanako Tamiya

    BMC Public Health   19 ( 1 ) 1238 - 1238  2019.12  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    <title>Abstract</title>
    <sec>
    <title>Background</title>
    With the increase of overall life expectancy in Japan, effective and beneficial lifestyle approaches and practices are crucial for individuals to have a long, productive and healthy life. Although previous studies suggest that exercise or sports, especially when performed with others, from midlife level have a positive impact on enhancing healthy life expectancy, there is paucity of information regarding these contexts and possible associations. The present study intends to clarify the relationship between engagement in exercise or sports among middle-aged persons and healthy life expectancy through an ecological study in all prefectures in Japan.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title>Methods</title>
    We tabulated (1) the ratios of middle-aged individuals engaged in exercise or sports and (2) the different methods by which they are engaged in exercise or sports for each prefecture by using data from the 2005–2010 Longitudinal Survey of Middle-aged and Elderly Persons by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan. Weighted multiple linear regression analyses were performed by sex, using healthy life expectancy in 2010 of each prefecture calculated by Hashimoto (2013) as a criterion variable; indices of (1) and (2) of each year as explanatory variables; and age, living conditions, employment, and chronic diseases as adjusted variables.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title>Results</title>
    For middle-aged males, the ratio of those engaged in exercise or sports in each year from 2005 to 2010 was positively correlated with healthy life expectancy; this relationship was found in the ratio of middle-aged engaging in exercise or sports “with families or friends”. For females, such a relationship could only be found in the ratio of middle-aged females engaged in exercise or sports in 2008, and those engaging in exercise or sports “with families or friends” in 2006, 2008 and 2010.


    </sec>
    <sec>
    <title>Conclusion</title>
    Prefectures with a higher ratio of middle-aged individuals engaging in exercise or sports, especially when done with families or friends, have longer healthy life expectancies. This was particularly evident for males. Thus, exercise or sports with families or friends in midlife seems to be more effective in promoting healthy life expectancy for males than females in Japan.

  • Partial Smoking Ban and Secondhand Smoke Exposure in Japan

    Sen Zeng, Haruko Noguchi, Satoru Shimokawa

    International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health   16 ( 15 ) 2804 - 2804  2019.08  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Implementing smoking bans is a worldwide common practice for tobacco control. However, if the policy prohibits smoking partially rather than comprehensively, it may increase nonsmokers’ exposure to secondhand smoke (SHS) in nonprohibited places. This paper investigates how a partial smoking ban affected nonsmokers’ SHS exposure (measured by frequency of having exposure to SHS in days per month) in households, workplaces, and restaurants by examining the case of a partial smoking ban introduced in a large Japanese prefecture in 2013. Using data from the National Health and Nutrition Survey (NHNS) in 2010, 2013, and 2016 (n = 30,244) and the Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions (CSLC) from 2001 to 2016 (n = 2,366,896), this paper employs a difference-in-differences (DID) approach. We found that the partial smoking ban significantly increased their SHS exposure in households and workplaces by 2.64 days and 4.70 days per month, respectively, while it did not change nonsmokers’ SHS exposure in restaurants. The results imply that the smoking ban displaced smokers from public places to private places. We also found that neither smokers’ smoking status nor smoking intensity changed significantly after implementing the partial smoking ban. Comprehensive smoking bans are needed to better protect nonsmokers from SHS exposure.

    BMJ Open   9 ( 8 ) e026238  2019.08  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    OBJECTIVES: To assess the association between receiving the certified care workers' home care service, which is provided by non-medical professionals prior to a patients' death and the probability of a home death. DESIGN: Observational research using the full-time translated number of certified care workers providing home care service per member of the population aged 65 or above, during the year prior to patient's death per municipality as an instrumental variable. SETTING: The certified care workers' home care service covered by the public long-term care insurance (LTCI) system in Japan. PARTICIPANTS: In total, 1 613 391 LTCI beneficiaries aged 65 or above who passed away, except by an external cause of death, between January 2010 and December 2013 were included in the analysis. PRIMARY OUTCOME MEASURES: Death at home or death at other places, including hospitals, nursing homes and clinics with beds. RESULTS: Out of all participants, 173 498 (10.8%) died at home. The number of patients who used the certified care workers' home care service more than once per each month during 1, 2 or 3 months prior to the month of death numbered 213 848, 176 686 and 155 716, respectively. This was associated with an increased probability of death at home by 9.1% points (95% CI 2.9 to 15.3), 10.5% points (3.3 to 17.6) and 11.4% points (3.6 to 19.2), respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The use of the certified care workers' home care service prior to death was associated with the increased probability of a home death.

  • How do cardiovascular diseases harm labor force participation? Evidence of nationally representative survey data from Japan, a super-aged society

    Rong Fu, Haruko Noguchi, Shuhei Kaneko, Akira Kawamura, Cheolmin Kang, Hideto Takahashi, Nanako Tamiya

    PLOS ONE   14 ( 7 ) e0219149 - e0219149  2019.07  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate how cardiovascular diseases harm labor force participation (LFP) among the Japanese population and verify the validity of plasma biomarkers as instrumental variables of cardiovascular diseases after adjusting for a broad set of confounders including dietary intake. DESIGN: Using nationally representative repeated cross-sectional surveys in Japan, the Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions and National Health and Nutrition Survey, with plasma biomarkers as instrumental variables for quasi-randomization. SETTING: Onset of cardiovascular diseases in those receiving regular treatment for hypertension, intracerebral hemorrhage, intracerebral infarction, angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, or other types of cardiovascular diseases. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 65,615 persons aged ≥ 20 years (35,037 women and 30,578 men) who completed a survey conducted every three years from 1995 through 2013. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Respondent employment and weekly working hours during each survey year. RESULTS: Cardiovascular diseases significantly and remarkably reduced the probability of working by 15.4% (95% CI: -30.6% to -0.2%). The reduction in working probability was detected for women only. Respondents aged ≥ 40 years were less likely to work once diagnosed and the reduction was enlarged for those aged ≥ 65 years, while those aged < 40 years appeared to be unaffected. Probability of engaging in manual labor significantly decreased once diagnosed; however, no impact was found for cognitive occupations. Among employed respondents, the adverse effects of cardiovascular diseases decreased working hours by five hours per week. Validity of the biomarker instrumental variables was generally verified. CONCLUSIONS: A vicious circle is suggested between LFP and unfavorable health. However, the effects vary across age, sex, and occupation type, even after adjusting for causal effects, which could cause a downward bias in LFP impact. ATTRIBUTES: cardiovascular disease, labor force participation, instrumental variable method as quasi-randomization, plasma biomarker, Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions, National Health and Nutrition Survey.

  • Evaluating remedial education in elementary schools: Administrative data from a municipality in Japan

    Shun-ichiro Bessho, Haruko Noguchi, Akira Kawamura, Ryuichi Tanaka, Koichi Ushijima

    Japan and the World Economy   50   36 - 46  2019.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    In this study, we examine the effect of a remedial education program in language arts and mathematics for third and fourth-grade students with low previous academic performance. Utilizing a unique panel data set constructed from the administrative data of public elementary schools in Adachi ward in Japan, we estimate the impact of remedial program participation on the subsequent test scores in Japanese language arts and mathematics. This paper utilizes the variations in placement policies of schools as an instrument to identify the effect of the remedial education program, controlling for selection biases. Our estimation results indicate that the remedial education programs had positive effects on test scores of Japanese language arts by 0.13 of a standard deviation, while no statistically significant effect was found for mathematics test scores. The results suggest that the participants increased awareness of the importance of study practices and hours of study as well.

     View Summary

    Objective The aim of this nationwide study was to estimate the duration of formal long-term care, provided by Japanese long-term care insurance (LTCI) services, among frail Japanese elderly people living in the community.Methods The study subjects were 2,188,397 (men: 579,422, women: 1,124,022, age≥65 years) beneficiaries who used LTCI services for community living in June 2013. The duration of LTCI services for community living per diem per capita was estimated by converting the benefit amount to duration of care using the code for service in claims bills according to gender and care levels, which are a nationally certified classification of individual needs for long-term care (care level 1: lowest need, care level 5: highest need). Subsequently, LTCI services for community living were categorized into respite services and community services. Community services were further subcategorized into home visiting services and daycare services.Results The overall average duration of formal care per diem per capita for men and women were 97.4 and 112.7 minutes for care level 1, 118.3 and 149.1 for care level 2, 186.9 and 246.4 for care level 3, 215.2 and 273.2 for care level 4, and 213.1 and 261.4 for care level 5, respectively. Length of respite services increased gradually with care level, whereas duration of community services peaked at care level 3 and decreased at care levels 4 and 5. With regard to the community service subcategories, duration of home visiting services increased with care level, but duration of daycare services peaked at care level 3.Conclusion Although the care levels in the LCTI system are designed to assess the need for formal care in terms of duration of care, our results suggest that the use of formal LTCI services for community living is not vertically equitable. Services that efficiently increase duration of formal care for those with higher needs for care may improve the equity and sustainability of formal long-term care services for community living.

     View Summary

    Aim: To determine the resident and facility characteristics associated with residents’ care-need level deterioration in long-term care welfare facilities in Japan. Methods: A nationally representative sample of 358 886 residents who lived in 3774 long-term care welfare facilities for at least 1 year from October 2012 was obtained from long-term care insurance claims data. Facility characteristics were linked with a survey of institutions and establishments for long-term care in 2012. We used a multilevel logistic regression according to the inclusion and exclusion of lost to follow-up to define the resident and facility characteristics associated with resident care-need level deteriorations (lost to follow-up: the majority were hospitalized residents or had died
    were treated as deterioration in the including loss to follow-up model). Results: Adjusting for the covariates, at the resident level, older age and lower care-need level at baseline were more likely to show deterioration in the care-need level. At the facility level, metropolitan facilities, unit model (all private room settings) and mixed-model facilities (partly private room settings) were less likely to experience care-need level deterioration. A higher proportion of registered nurses among all nurses was negatively related to care-need level deterioration only in the model including lost to follow-up. A higher proportion of registered dietitians among all dietitians and the facilities in business for fewer years were negatively associated with care-need level deterioration only in the model excluding lost to follow-up. Conclusions: The present study could help identify residents who are at risk of care-need level deterioration, and could contribute to improvements in provider quality performance and enhance competence in the market.

     View Summary

    Aim: The public mandatory long-term care insurance system in Japan has supposedly mitigated the care burden for family caregivers of older adults, whereas family caregivers still play a considerable role in providing care. The effect of informal caregiving on the caregiver's health has been of great interest. We investigated the relationship between the amplitude of informal caregiving and caregiver participation in health check-ups in Japan. Methods: The present study was a cross-sectional analysis of nationally representative data in Japan (2010 Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions). We investigated the relationship between care recipients’ care-need level and in-home caregiver participation in health check-ups during the last year of the survey for caregivers. Results: A total of 3354 caregiver/recipient pairs were included in the study. Crude proportions of caregivers completing a health check-up by care-need level were 68.4% (support required 1 and 2), 63.5% (care required 1–3) and 60.3% (care required 4 and 5). Higher care-need level was negatively associated with caregiver participation in health check-ups (support required 1 and 2as reference, care required 1–3: odds ratio 0.82, 95% confidence interval 0.75–0.90), care required 4 and 5: odds ratio 0.76, 95% confidence interval 0.74–0.79) after adjustment for possible confounders. Inclusion of the caregiver time devoted to care per day and caregiver self-rating of health as independent variables did not change the result. Conclusions: These results suggest that facilitating health check-up participation for family caregivers of care recipients with higher care-need levels might be an effective intervention for decreasing the gap in health behavior possibly caused by informal caregiving.

    PLOS ONE   12 ( 12 ) 1 - 14  2017.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The present study examines the relationships between changes in bonding and bridging types of social capital and depressive states among middle-aged adults in Japan using a nationally representative sample. Data was collected from a nationwide, population-based survey conducted from 2005 to 2013 in nine annual waves. A total of 16,737 middle-aged men and 17,768 middle-aged women provided data. They reported about depressive states, measured by Kessler 6 scores, and bonding and bridging types of social capital, measured by reported participation in different social activities. Latent growth modeling was conducted to examine relations between changes in bonding and bridging types of social capital and depressive states within individuals across the nine waves. The results showed that, for both men and women, increases in bonding social capital were associated with decreases in depressive states, while changes in bridging social capital were not related to changes in depressive states. In addition, the results showed that changes in bonding social capital, but not bonding social capital at the baseline, affected changes in depressive states. Future studies should take changes in social capital as an independent variable into consideration.

    Journal of Health Economics   56   103 - 112  2017.12

     View Summary

    We evaluate a spillover effect of the Japanese public long-term care insurance (LTCI) as a policy to stimulate family caregivers’ labor force participation. Using nationally representative data from 1995 to 2013, we apply difference-in-difference propensity score matching to investigate the spillover effect in two periods: before and after the introduction of the LTCI in 2000 and before and after its major amendment in 2006. Our results show that the LTCI introduction has significant and positive spillover effects on family caregivers’ labor force participation and the effects vary by gender and age. In contrast, the LTCI amendment is found to have generally negative spillover effects on their labor force participation. We draw attention to these spillover effects, as expanding labor market supply to sustain the economy would be a priority for Japan and other rapidly aging countries in the coming decades.

    GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY INTERNATIONAL   17 ( 11 ) 2109 - 2115  2017.11  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    AimThe effects of family caregiving, especially long-hours caregiving, on coronary heart disease (CHD) are debatable. We examined the impact of family caregiving on incident non-fatal CHD.
    MethodsWe used data from the Longitudinal Survey of Middle-Aged and Elderly Persons from 2005 to 2010, a nationwide panel survey for Japanese people aged 50-59 years in 2005 (baseline). After we excluded non-respondents and people with missing key variables at baseline, 25 121 individuals without CHD, stroke or cancer were followed up for a mean of 4.6 years. The exposure was assessed at baseline by three indicators: (i) family caregiving; (ii) hours spent caregiving; and (iii) kinship type of care recipient. The non-fatal CHD incidence was identified according to questionnaire responses from 2006 to 2010.
    ResultsCox's proportional hazards analysis did not show a statistically significant association between family caregiving and incident non-fatal CHD (hazard ratio [HR] 1.13, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.92-1.40). Caregivers who spent 20-69 h per week on care showed a statistically significant increased risk for non-fatal CHD (HR 1.78, 95% CI 1.23-2.58) compared with non-caregivers; whereas this increased risk was statistically significant only among women (HR 1.98, 95% CI 1.27-3.08), but not among men (HR 1.35, 95% CI 0.67-2.71). Kinship type of care recipient did not make a significant difference to the effects of family caregiving on incident non-fatal CHD.
    ConclusionsLong-hours family caregiving could be an independent risk factor for incident non-fatal CHD among middle-aged women in Japan. Geriatr Gerontol Int 2017; 17: 2109-2115.

  • Impact of medical subsidy disqualification on children's healthcare utilization: A difference-in-differences analysis from Japan

    Atsushi Miyawaki, Haruko Noguchi, Yasuki Kobayashi

    SOCIAL SCIENCE & MEDICINE   191   89 - 98  2017.10  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Financial support for children's medical expenses has been introduced in many countries. Limited work has been done on price elasticity in children's healthcare demand, especially in countries other than the United States. Moreover, it remains unclear how the effects of a change in the cost sharing rate on healthcare demand would differ by medical condition. We investigated the impact of an increase in the cost sharing rate on medical service utilization among school children as a whole and for each of nine common conditions, applying a difference-in-differences approach. The study period ranged from April 1, 2012, to March 30, 2014. Participants were elementary school children in an urban area who were eligible for National Health Insurance (a community-based public insurance) during the study period and who were enrolled in the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade in April 2013. We collected observations from 2896 persons and 69,504 (2896 x 24 months) person-months. When elementary school children were promoted to the 4th grade, they became disqualified for a municipal medical subsidy. The control group was the children promoted to the 2nd or the 3rd grade, who remained eligible for the subsidy. All data were obtained from health insurance claims. We identified the nine most common medical conditions among the subject children, and stratified the analyses by the condition diagnosed. We found that an increase in the cost sharing rate reduced outpatient service utilization as a whole. Also, we observed an increase in inpatient service utilization, not because of worsened health conditions, but rather due to substitution of inpatient service for outpatient service. The reductions in outpatient service were heterogeneous across medical conditions; declines were sharper for mild or chronic conditions. These findings may help to characterize how a change in cost sharing rate affects health outcomes in children. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    BMJ OPEN   7 ( 9 ) 1 - 11  2017.09  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Objective Changes in mortality inequalities across socioeconomic groups have been a substantial public health concern worldwide. We investigated changes in absolute/relative mortality inequalities across occupations, and the contribution of different diseases to inequalities in tandem with the restructuring of the Japanese economy.
    Methods Using complete Japanese national death registries from 5 year intervals (1980-2010), all cause and cause specific age standardised mortality rates (ASMR per 100 000 people standardised using the Japanese standard population in 1985, aged 30-59 years) across 12 occupations were computed. Absolute and relative inequalities were measured in ASMR differences (RDs) and ASMR ratios (RRs) among occupations in comparison with manufacturing workers (reference). We also estimated the changing contribution of different diseases by calculating the differences in ASMR change between 1995 and 2010 for occupations and reference.
    Results All cause ASMRs tended to decrease in both sexes over the three decades except for male managers (increased by 71% points, 1995-2010). RDs across occupations were reduced for both sexes (civil servants 233.5 to -1.9 for men; sales workers 63.3 to 4.5 for women) but RRs increased for some occupations (professional workers 1.38 to 1.70; service workers 2.35 to 3.73) for men and decreased for women from 1980 to 2010. Male relative inequalities widened among farmer, fishery and service workers, because the percentage declines were smaller in these occupations. Cerebrovascular disease and cancer were the main causes of the decrease in mortality inequalities among sexes but the incidence of suicide increased among men, thereby increasing sex related inequalities.
    Conclusions Absolute inequality trends in mortality across occupations decreased in both sexes, while relative inequality trends were heterogeneous in Japan. The main drivers of narrowing and widening mortality inequalities were cerebrovascular disease and suicide, respectively. Future public health efforts will benefit from eliminating residual inequalities in mortality by considering the contribution of the causes of death and socioeconomic status stratification.

     View Summary

    It is widely documented that psychological distress is negatively associated with social networks involvement. However, despite the theoretical postulations that social networks are crucial for alleviating psychological distress, no study has yet empirically confirmed the causality of this relationship. Thus, we used the random-effects generalized least squares method to investigate the effect of one- and two-year lagged values for involvement in social networks on psychological distress. Nine years of longitudinal data were extracted from a nationally representative survey in Japan ("The Longitudinal Survey of Middle-aged and Older Persons"). We utilized the Kessler 6 (K6) score to measure psychological distress among 15,242 respondents aged 50-59 years in the baseline year (2005), and stratified participants into three layers of social networks: inner (well-established friendship ties and participating in hobby activates), intermediary (neighborly ties), and outer (involvement in community activities). We found highly significant and negative associations between all three layers and K6 scores, with the strongest association being for the inner layer. We further observed that one-year lagged involvement in the inner and intermediary layers led to significantly lower K6 scores. However, the protective influences of social networks generally diminished over time. In addition, the protective influences of social network involvement on psychological distress were stronger for women than for men. Furthermore, involvement in social networks was especially important for improving mental health among people with psychological distress. These findings would be important for policymaking to prevent mental health deterioration among middle-aged adults in Japan. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    INTERNATIONAL PSYCHOGERIATRICS   28 ( 12 ) 2029 - 2043  2016.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Background: Depressive symptoms are a leading cause of disability and emotional suffering, particularly in old age. However, evidence on depression and old age in developing countries remains largely ignored. The aim of this study was to examine the relation between health behavior and social conditions with depression among dependent community-dwelling older persons in the Republic of Chile.
    Methods: This is a cross-sectional and inferential study, using nationally representative secondary data. Two models used logistic regression on 640 dependent community-dwelling older persons from all over Chile, who personally answered a depression assessment, excluding those taking antidepressants. The geriatric depression scale (GDS-15) was used as outcome. The first model aims at any kind of depression (GDS 5&gt;). The second aims at severe depression (GDS 10&gt;). As exposure, we used the health behavior and social conditions of the older persons. Socio-demographic and physical conditions were used as adjustment.
    Results: 44.5% of the older persons presented depressive symptoms. Among them, 11% had severe depression. Logistic regression showed that significant detrimental factors for being depressed in both models were visiting the doctor five times or over because of acute diseases, feeling uncomfortable with their living arrangement, and feeling discriminated. On the other hand, every additional day of physical exercise and living alone had a beneficial and detrimental effect only in model one.
    Conclusion: Analyses on ways to support older persons living alone and the promotion of physical exercise to avoid depression are needed, along with a deeper understanding of the comfort with their living arrangement. Finally, ways to address the discrimination among older persons should be further explored.

     View Summary

    Objective Previous studies conducted in Japan targeted only mothers who cared for children with disabilities, and lacked reference subjects, such as mothers of children without disabilities. The aim of this study was to examine the association between raising one or two children with a disability and maternal psychological distress compared to mothers of children without a disability, and to assess differences among partnered mothers living with grandparent(s), partnered mothers without grandparent(s), and single mothers. Methods This study utilized data from the Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions (CSLC) in 2010. We merged the data of the children (aged six and over), mothers, and fathers. This study obtained 33,739 study subjects as a triad of a child (33,110 children without disabilities and 629 children with disabilities), mother, and father. The Japanese version of Kessler 6 (K6) was used to assess the psychological distress of mothers. Multivariate logistic regression was performed to assess the independent association of a child with a disability on maternal psychological distress after controlling for the basic characteristics of the children, mothers, and households. Results This study reported that raising one or two children with disabilities was significantly related to maternal psychological distress (odds ratio: 1.72 for one child, 2.85 for two children) compared to mothers of children without disability. After stratifying the analyses by family structure, significant associations remained among mothers in two-parent families but not for mothers in three-generation families and single mothers due to a small number of children with disabilities in these families. Conclusions This study reported the significant association between raising a child with a disability and maternal psychological distress in comparison to mothers of children without disabilities. Attention should be paid to not only single mothers, but also partnered mothers in two-parent families who have a child with a disability. It is important for health professionals to focus on the mental health of every mother of a child with a disability and to assess their needs for psychological support.

    Japanese Journal of Public Health   63 ( 11 ) 675 - 681  2016.11  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    <p>Objectives The study objectives were to clarify the characteristics of elderly persons participating in a preventive long-term care program (PLTC) organized by a local government, and to verify how the program would affect the health status of the elderly.</p><p>Methods We made secondary use of individual-level micro-based longitudinal data from the "Health and Living Survey of Elderly Persons", conducted in Abashiri City of Hokkaido Prefecture in two consecutive years (2013 and 2014). The treatment group included subjects who joined the PLTC program, agreed to the survey, and responded to the survey in both 2013 and 2014. The control group included residents ≥65 years of age who were randomly chosen from a basic resident register, who had never participated in the PLTC program and had also responded to both periods of surveys. The sample size of the treatment group was 157 and that of the control group was 252. We applied a propensity-score (PS) matching method to verify the effects of PLTC programs on the health status of the elderly. The covariates were demographic and socio-economic characteristics in the baseline period (2013), such as sex, age, living arrangements, marital status, working status, monthly mean household expenditure, distance to the nearest PTLC program site (called "Fureaino-ie"), and health status such as self-rated health status, Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Gerontology Index of Competence (TMIG-IC), Kessler 6 (K6), and outpatient status. The outcome was that the health status of elderly persons was the same as the above in 2014.</p><p>Results From basic statistics in 2013, older women who live near to "Fureaino-ie" are more likely to join a PLTC program. The mean monthly expenditure of participants would be approximately 20,000 \, which tended to be lower than that of non-participants. However, for living arrangements and marital status, we did not observe statistical significance between treatment and control groups. Regarding health status in 2013, participants tended to be healthier than non-participants. PS matching results indicated that almost all the characteristics became balanced.</p><p>Conclusion The PLTC program in Abashiri City would contribute to improved psychological health in the elderly. However, study observation periods are only 2 years, which might not be long enough to observe the effect of the program on physical health. Therefore, further study should be conducted for longer periods of follow-up and for intervention by specialists.</p>

    PLOS ONE   11 ( 10 ) 1 - 13  2016.10  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This study investigated the effects of leisure and social activities on the ability of middle-aged adults to maintain activities of daily living (ADL), and whether performing these activities alone or with others contributed to the ability to perform ADL. The study used nationally representative longitudinal data of 22,770 adults in Japan, aged 50-59 years, who did not have limitations in performing ADL at the beginning of the 5-year survey period. The study considered six activity categories: two leisure activities ("hobbies or cultural activities" and "exercise or sports") and four social activities ("community events," "support for children," "support for elderly individuals," and "other social activities"). Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to examine the relation between participation in these categories at baseline and difficulties in ADL at the 5-year follow-up. The association between the extent of social interaction during these activities ("by oneself," "with others," or "both") and difficulties in ADL was also investigated. The analysis yielded significant negative correlations between "exercise or sports" and difficulties in ADL for both men and women, and between "hobbies or cultural activities" and difficulties in ADL for women. However, these significant relationships occurred only when activities were conducted "with others." The present findings might help prevent deterioration in middle-aged adults' performance of ADL in Japan.

    GERIATRICS & GERONTOLOGY INTERNATIONAL   16 ( 6 ) 670 - 678  2016.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    AimThe objective of the present study was to verify how socioeconomic and physical/mental health status would be associated with activity limitations by age and sex among older adults, using nationally representative cross-sectional data in Japan.
    MethodsThe present study focused on 8373 older adults aged 65 years or older extracted from the Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions conducted in 2007 by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. Univariate and multiple logistic regression analyses and population-attributable risk were applied to validate the relationships of socioeconomic and physical/mental health status with activity limitations among the total population, and by age groups (young-old or old-old) and sex.
    ResultsMental health showed the highest odds ratio and population-attributable risk in the total population. In addition, low back pain was associated with activity limitations regardless of age and sex. Other musculoskeletal diseases, such as arthropathy and osteoporosis, were related to activity limitations for women, regardless of age, whereas cardiovascular diseases, including angina pectoris/myocardial infarction and cerebral stroke, were associated with activity limitations for men in any age group. There were no statistically significant correlations between socioeconomic status and activity limitations in any groups.
    ConclusionMental health was the most important factor of activity limitations in Japanese older adults. Furthermore, low back pain regardless of age and sex, other musculoskeletal diseases only for women and cardiovascular diseases mainly for men could also be significant risk factors to activity limitations. Therefore, preventive approaches of activity limitations considering sex differences are important for older adults in Japan.

    Rong Fu, Haruko Noguchi

    PLOS ONE   11 ( 2 ) 1 - 15  2016.02  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Objectives
    This study focuses on East Asian countries and investigates the difference in the marriage premium on the health-marriage protection effect (MPE) between younger and older generations and the intra-couple education concordance effect (ECE) on the health of married individuals. This study used inter-country comparative data from China, Japan, and Korea.
    Methods
    This study focused on individuals (n = 7,938) in China, Japan, and Korea who were sampled from the 2010 East Asian Social Survey. To investigate MPE and ECE, four health indicators were utilized: a physical and mental components summary (PCS and MCS), self-rated health status (Dself), and happiness level (Dhappy). Ordinary least squares regression was conducted by country-and gender-specific subsamples.
    Results
    We found that the MPE on PCS, MCS, and Dself was more significant for the older generation than for the younger generation in both China and Japan, whereas the results were inconclusive in Korea. With regard to the ECE on happiness (Dhappy), for both men and women, couples tend to be happier when both the husband and the wife are well educated ("higher balanced marriage") compared to couples with a lower level of educational achievement ("lower balanced marriage"). Significant benefits from a "higher balanced marriage" on MCS and Dself were observed for women only. In contrast, no statistically significant differences in health status were observed between "higher balanced marriage" couples and couples with different levels of educational achievements ("upward marriage" or "downward marriage").
    Conclusions
    This study found that (1) the MPE was more significant for the older generation, and (2) the health gap, particularly the happiness gap, between higher-and lower-balanced married couples was significant. The inter-country comparative findings are useful to explain how the role of marriage (and therefore of family) on health has been diluted due to the progress of industrialization and modernization.

    PLOS ONE   10 ( 12 ) 1 - 14  2015.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The number of children with disability is increasing gradually in Japan. Previous researches in other countries have reported that parents as caregivers (CGs) of children with disability have mental health problems, but the actual situation has not been examined nationwide in Japan so far. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between mental health of CGs who had children with disability and characteristics of children, CGs, and household based on the nation-wide survey. This study utilized data from 2010 Comprehensive Survey of the Living Conditions, and defined children with disability aged 6 to 17. Individual data of children and CGs were linked, and 549 pairs of them were extracted. The Japanese version of Kessler 6 (K6) was used to assess mental health status of caregiver, scored 5 and over represented to general psychological distress. Logistic regression was used to evaluate the associations of interest. The almost half (44.4%) of CGs had psychological distress (k6 score; 5 +) in nationwide, and 8.9% of CGs might have serious mental illness (K6 score; 13 +). After adjusting covariates of child, CG, and household factors, CG having a current symptom (OR, 95% CI: 3.26, 1.97-5.39), CG's activity restriction (OR, 95% CI: 2.95, 1.38-6.32), low social support (OR, 95% CI: 9.31, 1.85-46.8), three generation family (OR, 95% CI: 0.49, 0.26-0.92), and lower 25% tile group of monthly household expenditure (OR, 95% CI: 1.92, 1.05-3.54), were significantly associated with psychological distress of CGs. This study encourages health care providers to pay more attentions toward parent's mental health, especially for in case of having low social support, and lower income family. Further research should examine the detailed information of child's disease and disability, medical service use, and quality and quantity of social support in nationwide to straighten the system for supporting services of both children with disabilities and their CGs.

    Fumi Takeda, Haruko Noguchi, Takafumi Monma, Nanako Tamiya

    PLOS ONE   10 ( 10 ) 1 - 10  2015.10  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Objectives
    This study aimed to investigate longitudinal relations between leisure and social activities and mental health status, considering the presence or absence of other persons in the activity as an additional variable, among middle-aged adults in Japan. This study used nationally representative data in Japan with a five-year follow-up period.
    Methods
    This study focused on 16,642 middle-aged adults, age 50-59 at baseline, from a population-based, six-year panel survey conducted by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. To investigate the relations between two leisure activities ('hobbies or cultural activities' and 'exercise or sports') and four social activities ('community events', 'support for children', 'support for elderly individuals' and 'other social activities') at baseline and mental health status at follow-up, multiple logistic regression analysis was used. We also used multiple logistic regression analysis to investigate the association between ways of participating in these activities ('by oneself', 'with others', or 'both' (both 'by oneself' and 'with others')) at baseline and mental health status at follow-up.
    Results
    Involvement in both leisure activity categories, but not in social activities, was significantly and positively related to mental health status in both men and women.
    Furthermore, in men, both 'hobbies or cultural activities' and 'exercise or sports' were significantly related to mental health status only when conducted 'with others'. In women, the effects of 'hobbies or cultural activities' on mental health status were no differences regardless of the ways of participating, while the result of 'exercise or sports' was same as that in men.
    Conclusions
    Leisure activities appear to benefit mental health status among this age group, whereas specific social activities do not. Moreover, participation in leisure activities would be effective especially if others are present. These findings should be useful for preventing the deterioration of mental health status in middle-aged adults in Japan.

  • How does the Price Regulation Policy Impact on Patient-Nurse Ratios and the Length of Hospital Stays in Japanese Hospitals?

    Haruko Noguchi

    ASIAN ECONOMIC POLICY REVIEW   10 ( 2 ) 301 - 323  2015.07  [Refereed]  [Invited]

     View Summary

    This study examines how the 2000 and 2006 revisions of the fee-for-service system have affected patient-nurse ratios and the average length of hospital stays in Japan. The empirical results show that hospitals are quite responsive to changes in price policy. The fee revisions have certainly achieved the policy objectives of reducing patient-nurse ratios and the length of hospital stays. As a result, hospitals have responded by greatly increasing the number of expensive beds for acute care. However, this was not exactly predicted by the Japanese government, which has aimed to reallocate health-care resources, such as beds, to subacute or long-term care.

    APPLIED ECONOMICS   47 ( 22 ) 2307 - 2325  2015  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    We explore the causal relationship between hospital length of stay (LOS) and re-hospitalization for Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) patients in Japan, where the average LOS is the longest among OECD countries. Using chart-based data, we address the endogeneity between LOS and re-hospitalization probability by using an exogenous variation based on Rokuyo (the six basic labels allocated to each day), which is found to be irrelevant to admission day but relevant to discharge day. While we do find a significant and positive association between LOS and re-hospitalization probability in the OLS estimation, we do not find a significant relationship once LOS is instrumented by Rokuyo in various instrumental variable estimations. This implies that additional stay that was induced owing to patient's choice of preferred Rokuyo at discharge has no effect on re-hospitalization probability.

     View Summary

    Mental health problems during pregnancy and postpartum periods are one of
    the alarming health issues among women in Japan. This study analyzed data
    on the Japanese version of the Kessler 6 (K6), specific psychosocial
    stressors, and working status of pregnant and puerperium women (n=1126)
    from respondents in the Comprehensive Survey of People’s Living
    Conditions (CSPLC) conducted in 2007 by Ministry of Health, Labour and
    Welfare in Japan. Multiple logistic analyses showed the significant
    associations between mental health and psychosocial stressors: “family
    relationship,” “pregnancy and birth,” and “incomes/ family budgets/ debts”,
    regardless of “employed” or “unemployed”. After stratified by working
    status, whereas “one’s job” stressor had an association with mental health
    only for employed females, stressors for “one’s disease/long -term care” and
    “housework” had associations only for unemployed ones. For employed
    women, the primary factor for mental health was “family relationship”
    stressor. Although mental health status measured by K6 was not different
    between employed or unemployed female population, primary stressors
    related mental health was revealed to differ with working status. Especially,
    “family relationship” stressor was the highest risk factor of mental health in
    employed women. More importantly, the results provided evidence on the
    differences in associations between mental health and specific psychosocial
    stressors by working status. Psychosocial risk assessments and interventions
    on working status among pregnant and puerperium women should be
    imperative to pay attention for social politics.

    BULLETIN OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION   90 ( 6 ) 426 - 435  2012.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Objective To assess the effect on out-of-pocket medical spending and physical and mental health of Japan's reduction in health-care cost sharing from 30% to 10% when people turn 70 years of age.
    Methods Study data came from a 2007 nationally-representative cross-sectional survey of 10 293 adults aged 64 to 75 years. Physical health was assessed using a 16-point scale based on self-reported data on general health, mobility, self-care, activities of daily living and pain. Mental health was assessed using a 24-point scale based on the Kessler-6 instrument for nonspecific psychological distress. The effect of reduced cost sharing was estimated using a regression discontinuity design.
    Findings For adults aged 70 to 75 years whose income made them ineligible for reduced cost sharing, neither out-of-pocket spending nor health outcomes differed from the values expected on the basis of the trend observed in 64- to 69-year-olds. However, for eligible adults aged 70 to 75 years, out-of-pocket spending was significantly lower (P&lt;0.001) and mental health was significantly better (P&lt;0.001) than expected. These differences emerged abruptly at the age of 70 years. Moreover, the mental health benefits were similar in individuals who were and were not using health-care services (P=0.502 for interaction). The improvement in physical health after the age of 70 years in adults eligible for reduced cost-sharing tended to be greater than in non-eligible adults (P=0.084).
    Conclusion Reduced cost sharing was associated with lower out-of-pocket medical spending and improved mental health in older Japanese adults.

     View Summary

    Objectives Scale development of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) measures, including physical and mental health measures, among public datasets from Japan is needed for comparative studies on health conditions among different age, gender, and socio-economic subgroups. Multi-attributable scales of continuous/discrete variables on HRQOL could be more flexible for different kinds of epidemiologic and socio-econometric studies rather than single-item measures. The objectives of this study were to create multi-dimensional scales for physical, mental, and summary health measures and to describe the age-related trends of these scales in Japan. Methods We utilized data from the 2007 Comprehensive Survey of the Living Conditions of People on Health and Welfare (LCPHW: Kokumin Seikatsu Kiso Chosa) (n = 383,745) to measure physical health (0 = worst score, 16 = best score) by summarizing four items: general health status, bedridden status/mobility, self-care/usual activities, and pain (0 = worst score, 4 = best score for each item). Mental health was measured using a Japanese version of K6 (0 = worst score, 4 = best score, modified from original version in which 24 = worst score and 0 = best score). We then created a summary health scale using the simple sum of physical and mental health (0 = worst score, 20 = best score). The reliability and validity of the scales were evaluated and their age-related trends described. Results The internal consistency reliability of the physical and summary health scales was not sufficiently high (Cronbach's α = 0.64 and 0.67, respectively) and the agerelated trend was smooth and monotonous. The internal consistency reliability of the mental health scale (K6) was high (Cronbach's α = 0.90), while the age-related trend peaked at age 65-74 years. Conclusions While K6 was a measure with high reliability for describing mental health, use of the physical and summary health scale in the Japanese population requires further discussion. Additional validation tests of the summary scales also need to be performed, in which our methodology is applied to other data sets that include strict diagnostic results based on a structural interview. © The Japanese Society for Hygiene 2011.

     View Summary

    Japan&apos;s population is ageing rapidly because of long life expectancy and a low birth rate, while traditional supports for elderly people are eroding. In response, the Japanese Government initiated mandatory public long-term care insurance (LTCI) in 2000, to help older people to lead more independent lives and to relieve the burdens of family carers. LTCI operates on social insurance principles, with benefits provided irrespective of income or family situation; it is unusually generous in terms of both coverage and benefits. Only services are provided, not cash allowances, and recipients can choose their services and providers. Analysis of national survey data before and after the programme started shows increased use of formal care at lower cost to households, with mixed results for the wellbeing of carers. Challenges to the success of the system include dissatisfaction with home-based care, provision of necessary support for family carers, and fiscal sustainability. Japan&apos;s strategy for long-term care could offer lessons for other nations.

     View Summary

    Japan's health indices such as life expectancy at birth are among the best in the world. However, at 8.5% the proportion of gross domestic product spent on health is 20th among Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries in 2008 and half as much as that in the USA. Costs have been contained by the nationally uniform fee schedule, in which the global revision rate is set first and item-by-item revisions are then made. Although the structural and process dimensions of quality seem to be poor, the characteristics of the health-care system are primarily attributable to how physicians and hospitals have developed in the country, and not to the cost-containment policy. However, outcomes such as postsurgical mortality rates are as good as those reported for other developed countries. Japan's basic policy has been a combination of tight control of the conditions of payment, but a laissezfaire approach to how services are delivered; this combination has led to a scarcity of professional governance and accountability. In view of the structural problems facing the health-care system, the balance should be shifted towards increased freedom of payment conditions by simplification of reimbursement rules, but tightened control of service delivery by strengthening of regional health planning, both of which should be supported through public monitoring of providers' performance. Japan's experience of good health and low cost suggests that the priority in health policy should initially be improvement of access and prevention of impoverishment from health care, after which efficiency and quality of services should then be pursued.

    JAPAN AND THE WORLD ECONOMY   21 ( 4 ) 365 - 372  2009.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Following the introduction of the long-term care insurance scheme and deregulation of the market for at-home care services, Japan experienced a substantial increase in expenditure on care for the elderly. Using household-level survey data, we empirically examine whether the increase in care expenditure is associated with supplier density springing from the rise in the number of care providers following deregulation. We provide weak evidence that supplier density in the at-home care market is positively correlated with probability to use care or expenditure on care. Moreover, we find no link between the share of for-profit providers and the demand for at-home care services. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    HEALTH ECONOMICS   18 ( 10 ) 1114 - 1132  2009.10  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The Technological Change in Health Care Research Network collected unique patient-level data on three procedures for treatment of heart attack patients (catheterization, coronary artery bypass grafts and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty) for 17 countries over a 15-year period to examine the impact of economic and institutional factors on technology adoption. Specific institutional factors are shown to be important to the uptake of these technologies. Health-care systems characterized as public contract systems and reimbursement systems have higher adoption rates than public-integrated health-care systems. Central control of funding of investments is negatively associated with adoption rates and the impact is of the same magnitude as the overall health-care system classification. GDP per capita also has a strong role in initial adoption. The impact of income and institutional characteristics on the utilization rates of the three procedures diminishes over time.

     View Summary

    In Japan, the, use of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is extraordinarily frequent, resulting in large medical expenditure. Using chart-based data and exploiting regional variations, we explore what factors explain the frequent use of PTCA, employing propensity score matching to estimate the average treatment effects on hospital expenditure and hospital days. We find that the probability of receiving PTCA is affected by the density of medical resources in a region. Moreover, expenditure is higher for treated patients while there are no significant differences in hospitalization days, implying that the frequent use of PTCA is economically motivated.

  • The socialization of at-home elderly care and female labor market participation: Micro-level evidence from Japan

    JAPAN AND THE WORLD ECONOMY   20 ( 1 ) 82 - 96  2008.01  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This study takes advantage of the introduction of Japan's public long-term care insurance scheme in 2000 as a unique natural experiment to evaluate how the socialization of long-term care affects female labor participation. Our difference-in-differences estimates suggest that the introduction of the scheme had no effect on female labor market participation in 2001, but a large and positive effect in 2002. The new long-term care scheme raised the probability that female caregivers were employed by 8 percentage points and, on average, the number of days per week and hours per day worked by female caregivers by 10-20 percent age points.

     View Summary

    In April 2000, Japan embarked on a reform of its health care market. Along with the introduction of a long-term care insurance scheme, the government for the first time allowed for-profit operators to compete head-on with non-profit operators in the provision of at-home care services. Taking advantage of a unique and rich micro-level survey, this study is the first to examine wage differentials between the nonprofit and the for-profit sectors in Japan's nursing care industry, concentrating on home helpers and staff nurses. Controlling for nonrandom unobserved selection biases, our results show that a nonprofit wage premium exists. This finding supports the hypothesis that nonprofit providers operate under non-distributional constraints. J. Japanese Int. Economies 21 (1) (2007) 106-120.

     View Summary

    Innovation of medical technology is a major driving force behind the increase in medical expenditures in developed countries. Previous studies identified that the diffusion of medical technology varied across countries according to the characteristics of regulatory policy and payment systems. Based on Roger's diffusion of innovation theory, this study purported to see how local practice norms, the evolving nature of diffusing technology, and local clinical needs in addition to differences in politico-economic systems would affect the process of innovation diffusion. Taking a case of coronary stenting, an innovative therapeutic technology in early 1990s, we provided a case study of hospital-based data between two teaching high-tech hospitals in Japan and the US for discussion. Stenting began to be widely used in both countries when complementary new technology modified its clinical efficacy, but the diffusion process still differed between the two hospitals due to (1) distinctive payment systems for hospitals and physicians, (2) practice norms in favor of percutaneous intervention rather than bypass surgery that was shaped by payment incentives and cultural attitudes, and (3) local patient's clinical characteristics that the technology had to be tailored for. The case study described the diffusion of stent technology as a dynamic process between patients, physicians, hospitals, health care systems, and technology under global and local conditions.

     View Summary

    CONTEXT: Most older adults who die in Japan do so in the hospital without receiving hospice or palliative care. While there are some hospices in Japan, little is known about the care they provide to the elderly. OBJECTIVE: To clarify how the care of dying patients differs in a hospice and a geriatric hospital in Japan. DESIGN: Cohort study. SETTING: A hospice and a geriatric hospital in Japan. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred ninety-one inpatients aged 65 or older. MAIN OUTCOME: Areas of our interest: (1) gender and age; (2) primary disease(s) and cause of death; (3) observed symptoms/conditions and medical treatment or care conducted within 48 hours prior to death; (4) the actual topics leading to disclosure; and (5) whether or not advance directives had been given. RESULTS: The X2 test determined that there were statistically significant differences between a geriatric hospital and a hospice, with respect to mean age, diagnoses on admission, primary cause of death, symptoms/conditions, and the practice of medical interventions. However, controlling for patient characteristics and assuming a bivariate distribution between the probabilities of choosing a facility and of undergoing a medical procedure, we found that patients at the hospice were more likely to undergo treatment with opioids, urethral catheter, and oral medicine; such patients were less likely to undergo oxygen inhalation, total parenteral nutrition, and other intravenous drips. CONCLUSION: The hospice examined in this study was similar to the approach regarding medical treatments observed at the geriatric hospital.

    ANNALS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE   137 ( 7 ) 555 - 562  2002.10  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Background: Patients with end-stage renal disease are known to have decreased survival after myocardial infarction, but the association of less severe renal dysfunction with survival after myocardial infarction is unknown.
    Objectives: To determine how patients with renal insufficiency are treated during hospitalization for myocardial infarction and to determine the association of renal insufficiency with survival after myocardial infarction.
    Design: Cohort study.
    Setting: All nongovernment hospitals in the United States.
    Patients: 130 099 elderly patients with myocardial infarction hospitalized between April 1994 and July 1995.
    Measurements: Patients were categorized according to initial serum creatinine level: no renal insufficiency (creatinine level &lt; 1.5 mg/dL [&lt;132 mumol/L];. n = 82 455), mild renal insufficiency (creatinine level, 1.5 to 2.4 mg/dL [132 to 212 mumol/L]; n = 36 756), or moderate renal insufficiency (creatinine level, 2.5 to 3.9 mg/dL (221 to 345 mumol/L); n = 10 888). Vital status up to 1 year after discharge was obtained from Social Security records.
    Results: Compared with patients with no renal insufficiency, patients with moderate renal insufficiency were less likely to receive aspirin, beta-blockers, thrombolytic therapy, angiography, and angioplasty during hospitalization. One-year mortality was 24% in patients with no renal insufficiency, 46% in patients with mild renal insufficiency, and 66% in patients with moderate renal insufficiency (P &lt; 0.001). After adjustment for patient and treatment characteristics, mild (hazard ratio, 1.68 [95% CI, 1.63 to 1.73]) and moderate (hazard ratio, 2.35 [CI 2.26 to 2.45]) renal insufficiency were associated with substantially elevated risk for death during the first month of follow-up. This increased mortality risk continued until 6 months after myocardial infarction.
    Conclusions: Renal insufficiency was an independent risk factor for death in elderly patients after myocardial infarction. Targeted interventions may be needed to improve treatment for this high-risk population.

     View Summary

    Although technological change is a hallmark of health care worldwide, relatively little evidence exists on whether changes in health care differ across the very different health care systems of developed countries. We present new comparative evidence on heart attach care in seventeen countries showing that technological change-changes in medical treatments that affect the quality and cost of care-is universal but has differed greatly around the world. Differences in treatment rates are greatest for costly medical technologies, where strict financing limits and other policies to restrict adoption of intensive technologies have been associated with divergences in medical practices over time. Countries appear to differ systematically in the time at which intensive cardiac procedures began to be widely used and in the rate of growth of the procedures. The differences appear to be related to economic and regulatory incentives of the health care systems and may have important economic and health consequences.

  • Comparison of the effects of angiotensin converting-enzyme inhibitors and beta blockers on survival in elderly patients with reduced left ventricular function after myocardial infarction

    MG Shlipak, WS Browner, H Noguchi, B Massie, CD Frances, M McClellan

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF MEDICINE   110 ( 6 ) 425 - 433  2001.04  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    PURPOSE: Angiotensin converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitors decrease mortality after myocardial infarction among patients with depressed left ventricular function. Beta blockers may also improve survival in these patients. We compared the relative effects of these agents on the survival of elderly patients with a left ventricular ejection fraction less than 40% after myocardial infarction.
    SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The Cooperative Cardiovascular Project collected data on patients aged 65 years and older who were admitted with myocardial infarction from April 1994 to July 1995, including 20,902 with a measured left ventricular ejection fraction less than 40% before discharge. Using proportional hazard regression models that adjusted for patient characteristics and in-hospital treatments, we compared survival among patients discharged on ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, both medications, or neither medication.
    RESULTS: Among patients surviving hospitalization with reduced left ventricular function, 9,108 (44%) were discharged on ACE inhibitors, 2,613 (13%) on beta blockers, 3,309 (16%) on both medications, and 5,872 (28%) on neither medication. Patients treated with ACE inhibitors were more likely to have a prior diagnosis of heart failure and less likely to have undergone revascularization, whereas those treated with beta blockers were more often treated with thrombolytic therapy and aspirin. Patients treated with ACE inhibitors [hazard ratio (HR = 0.80), 0.80; 95% confidence interval (CI), 0.73 to 0.87] or beta blockers (HR = 0.76, 0.76; 95% CI, 0.64 to 0.90) had lower adjusted 1-year mortality than those who were not treated with either medication. The combination of both medications was associated with additional benefit (HR = 0.68, 0.68; 95% CI, 0.59 to 0.80). The relative benefit of each medication was greatest among patients with an ejection fraction less than 30%, a serum creatinine level 2.0 mg/dL or greater, or both. To prevent a death within a year, the number of patients who needed to be treated with both medications varied from 5 to 15, depending; on election fraction and renal function.
    CONCLUSION: ACE inhibitors and beta blockers were associated with similar improvements in survival among elderly patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction after myocardial infarction. Our results suggest that patients who can tolerate both medications gain additional benefit from the combination. (C) 2001 by Excerpta Medica, Inc.

  • Does physician specialty affect the survival of elderly patients with myocardial infarction?

    CD Frances, MG Shlipak, H Noguchi, PA Heidenreich, M McClellan

    HEALTH SERVICES RESEARCH   35 ( 5 ) 1093 - 1116  2000.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Objective. To determine the effect of treatment by a cardiologist on mortality of elderly patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI, heart attack), accounting for both measured confounding using risk-adjustment techniques and residual unmeasured confounding with instrumental variables (TV) methods.
    Data Sources/Study Setting. Medical chart data and longitudinal administrative hospital records and death records were obtained for 161,558 patients aged greater than or equal to 65 admitted to a nonfederal acute care hospital with AMI from April 1994 to July 1995. Our principal measure of significant cardiologist treatment was whether a patient was admitted by a cardiologist. We use supplemental data to explore whether our analysis would differ substantially using alternative definitions of significant cardiologist treatment.
    Study Design. This retrospective cohort study compared results using least squares (LS) multivariate regression with results from IV methods that accounted for additional unmeasured patient characteristics. Primary outcomes were 30-day and one-year mortality, and secondary outcomes included treatment with medications and revascularization procedures.
    Data Collection/Extraction Methods. Medical charts for the initial hospital stay of each AMI patient underwent a comprehensive abstraction, including dates of hospitalization, admitting physician, demographic characteristics, comorbid conditions, severity of clinical presentation, electrocardiographic and other diagnostic test results, contraindications to therapy, and treatments before and after AMI.
    Principal Findings. Patients admitted by cardiologists had fewer comorbid conditions and less severe AMIs. These patients had a 10 percent (95 percent CI: 9.5-10.8 percent) lower absolute mortality rate at one year. After multivariate adjustment with LS regression, the adjusted mortality difference was 2 percent (95 percent CI: 1.4-2.6 percent). Using IV methods to provide additional adjustment for unmeasured differences in risk, we found an even smaller, statistically insignificant association between physician specialty and one-year mortality, relative risk (RR) 0.96 (0.88-1.04). Patients admitted by a cardiologist were also significantly more likely to have a cardiologist consultation within the first day of admission and during the initial hospital stay, and also had a significantly larger share of their physician bills for inpatient treatment from cardiologists. IV analysis of treatments showed that patients treated by cardiologists were more likely to undergo revascularization procedures and to receive thrombolytic therapy, aspirin, and calcium channel-blockers, but less likely to receive beta-blockers.
    Conclusions. In a large population of elderly patients with AMI, we found significant treatment differences but no significant incremental mortality benefit associated with treatment by cardiologists.

  • Are we inhibited? Renal insufficiency should not preclude the use of ACE inhibitors for patients with myocardial infarction and depressed left ventricular function

    CD Frances, H Noguchi, BM Massie, WS Browner, M McClellan

    ARCHIVES OF INTERNAL MEDICINE   160 ( 17 ) 2645 - 2650  2000.09  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Context: Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors have been shown to decrease mortality in patients with myocardial infarction and depressed left ventricular function, but physicians may be reluctant to prescribe ACE inhibitors to patients with concomitant renal insufficiency.
    Objective: To evaluate whether patients with depressed left, ventricular ejection fraction following acute myocardial infarction have a similar reduction in mortality from ACE inhibitors regardless of their renal function.
    Design: Retrospective cohort study using medical record data.
    Setting: All nonfederal acute care hospitals.
    Patients: A cohort of 20902 Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 years and older directly admitted to the hospital from February 1, 1994, through July 30, 1995, and with a documented left ventricular ejection fraction of less than 40% measured by echocardiography, radionuclide scintigraphy, or angiography following a confirmed acute myocardial infarction.
    Main Outcome Measures: One-year survival for patients who received or who did not receive an ACE inhibitor at hospital discharge, stratified by the patient's level of renal function.
    Results: For the entire cohort, the receipt of an ACE inhibitor on hospital discharge was associated with greater 1-year survival (hazards ratio, 0.84; 95% confidence interval, 0.77-0.91) after adjusting for patient demographic characteristics, comorbidity, severity of illness (including left ventricular ejection fraction), and the receipt of other therapies. In stratified models, the receipt of an ACE inhibitor was associated with a 37% (16%-52%) lower mortality for patients who had poor renal function (serum creatinine level,&lt;265 mu mol/L [&lt;3 mg/dL]) and a 16% (8%-23%) lower mortality for patients who had better renal function. Use of aspirin therapy attenuated the benefit of ACE inhibitors in patients with poor renal function.
    Conclusions: Moderate renal insufficiency should not be considered a contraindication to the use of ACE inhibitors in patients with depressed left ventricular ejection fraction following myocardial infarction. Use of aspirin therapy may attenuate the benefit of ACE inhibitors in patients with high serum creatinine levels; therefore, further studies are needed to determine whether treatment with aspirin, alternative antiplatelet agents, or anticoagulation is indicated for these patients.

     View Summary

    We constructed an individual-based longitudinal/panel data for various information related to children's human capital, by which are held by the Board of Education of Adachi Ward in Tokyo Metropolitan City. The total number of children we can follow-up by this data is approximately 0.5 million.The results show thatthere is a significant correlation between financial support and the development of children's academic ability and obesity; academic ability and physical strength and lifestyle; there is variation in school's and teacher's capability to improve children's academic ability by using value-added model, etc. Futher, we clarified that the early intervention would benefit to improve scholastic ability; and that about 30% of the top 20% of the students went to private junior high schools outside Adachi ward when they graduate primary school. These achievements were discussed not only in the academic society but also in policy discussion at Adachi Ward assembly

     View Summary

    Universal health coverage (UHC) assures the access to the health care services for all of residents with various life styles/employment status. It is very important to keep the function of UHC even in the population decreasing super-aged society. This study considered the health insurance system, function of health insurers and the way of cost sharing of health care, with empirical results using individual data.Empirical studies in this research project showed the results as follows; 1)Burden of social insurance premium was lowered for lower income classes this 10 years. 2)However there was exceptional individuals in those income class with very high burden of social insurance premium. 3)Lowered premium burden did not necessarily improve the rate of unpaid social insurance premium. 4)In view of service utilization, upper limitation of coinsurance rate keeps the assurrance of access to the health care services

     View Summary

    The aim of this study was to examine the relation between health behavior and social conditions with depression among dependent community-dwelling older persons in the Republic of Chile.This is a cross-sectional and inferential study, using nationally representative secondary data. Two models used logistic regression on 640 dependent community-dwelling older persons from all over Chile, who personally answered a depression assessment, excluding those taking antidepressants. The geriatric depression scale (GDS-15) was used as outcome. The first model aims at any kind of depression (GDS 5>). The second aims at severe depression (GDS 10>). As exposure, we used the health behavior and social conditions of the older persons. Socio-demographic and physical conditions were used as adjustment.44.5% of the older persons presented depressive symptoms. Among them, 11% had severe depression. Logistic regression showed that significant detrimental factors for being depressed in both models were visiting the doctor five times or over because of acute diseases, feeling uncomfortable with their living arrangement, and feeling discriminated. On the other hand, every additional day of physical exercise and living alone had a beneficial and detrimental effect only in model one.Analyses on ways to support older persons living alone and the promotion of physical exercise to avoid depression are needed, along with a deeper understanding of the comfort with their living arrangement. Finally, ways to address the discrimination among older persons should be further explored.28年度が最終年度であるため、記入しない。28年度が最終年度であるため、記入しない

  • Human capital formation in childhood and its association with health disparity in later life course

    Project Year :

    -
    2017.03
     

     View Summary

    Using an existing panel data of middle-age and older population (JSTAR), we investigated whether anthropometric measurement (e.g leg length) could be used as a proxy marker of human capital formation in childhood. We did not find significant association between leg length and recalled socioeconomic status in childhood. However, leg length did significantly mediate the association between educational attainment and blood pressure. We also relied on sibling information on educational attainment as a marker of social selection. Those with consistent educational attainment with his/her sibling had different association between educational attainment and smoking compared to their counterpart with inconsistent status for their siblings, suggesting that social selection does matter in the estimation of social disparity in health

     View Summary

    In this study, 60 workshops on co-creative expression had been carried out in Ishinomaki and Higashi-Matsushima in Miyagi Prefecture, the cities affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake for the period of 3 years. The workshops involved local children and adults with developmental disabilities as well as their families, education/welfare officials and citizens. Going back and forth between the workshop sites and research, the authors have deliberated on development of activity model that promotes the emergence of co-vibration in creative embodied-expression which mainly incorporates hand improvisation, measuring method for co-vibration creating skills, and research method which determines relevance between experience in co-vibration and physical/social changes from the viewpoint of “from the embodied co-creation into a social co-creation.”

  • Sandplay therapy and the brain: A neuropsychoanalytic study using NIRS

    Project Year :

    2016.03
     

     View Summary

    We investigated, by using NIRS (near-infrared spectroscopy), the creative process and the therapist-client relationship in sandplay therapy. The results:(1) When the sandplayers made sand pictures, the fronto-temporal networks were activated. (2) There were significant cross-correlations between the hemodynamics of the sandplayer’s brain and the therapist’s. Our clinical cases demonstrated that introducing sandplay could enhance the therapist’s empathy, which may bring about a turning point in therapy. Our NIRS study suggested that at such a moment, there might be interactions or synchronizations between the therapist’s brain and that of the client. Our results may have provided a new perspective to clinical sandplay practices

     View Summary

    We compiled a database of survey questions used in quantitative family research in Japan. The database is organized by topics and includes a list of questions and response categories and details of the data collection method. From the database, we identified themes that can be analyzed using “integrative data analysis.” Such themes include the division of and time spent on housework and childcare; communication, companionship and decision-making between partners; relationship satisfaction; and ideas regarding families. In addition, we undertook an Internet survey (n=1271) in order to compare the response patterns when different response categories are used on the same question and when different questions are asked on the same phenomenon. We also conducted face-to-face interviews with 6 married couples on the survey questions in order to understand these response patterns

     View Summary

    A major contribution of this project is to construct the micro-based data which consists of both health care (HC) and long term care (LTC) use for an elderly person. This data makes the inter-temporal use of both care traceable for each individual, even if a person transfers National Health Insurance to the latter-stage elderly healthcare system when he/she become 75 years old. Also, using this data, we could quantitatively clarify the relation between the use and expenditure of HC and LTC, the effects of the transfer of type of health insurance on HC expenditure, and the relation between HC expenditure and the insurance premium evasion, etc.Moreover, we conduct the inquiring survey (interview, participant observation and questionnaire) from interdisciplinary point of views of sociologists and economists in our project. Using this survey, we could verify socio-economic characteristics and health status of elderly person within the community who participate into the salon activities

     View Summary

    The objective of this research is to explore the historical developments of child adoption in the U.S. and Japan and their welfare implications, using newly constructed datasets and the theoretical and empirical methods of the family economics. In a study using U.S. federal census microdata from 1880-1930 and 2000, I investigated changes in parental motivations for adoption over the 20th century and how they affected the human capital formation of adopted children in the U.S. This study generated many novel and important findings, and was well received at both domestic and international conferences. Informed by U.S. findings, I also examined child adoption in Japan and its role in improving children’s welfare from a comparative perspective, and compiled new prefecture panel data to investigate the determinants of adoption. From these studies, I gained useful insights for designing future policies and disseminated these findings to both academic and nonacademic audiences

     View Summary

    This study is aimed at implementing the PDCA cycle (process improvement technique consisting of 4 steps:Plan,Do,Check, and Act) which has two main components, medical, long term care, and welfare care fieldsites and the university. We have planned to cooperate with the medical, long term care, welfare fieldsites by examining together the Tsukuba-city medical welfare case examination meetings, and providing feedback to Tsukuba City by analyzing their needs survey. We performed a scientific study using several types of data analysis, including big data from national long-term care benefit expenditures data and from the Comprehensive Survey of Living Conditions. We examined the regional comprehensive care promotion policy , including these findings, to clarify how to advance the cooperation between medical and long-term care, what kind of support require the persons in need of care, children with disabilities and the use situation of nursing care insurance services

    欧米での調査、及び欧米からの研究者招聘により欧米研究者との連携を深め、米国並びに欧州における大学・大学院一般や経済学分野における若手・女性研究者の状況と研究状況に関して議論を深めた。2013年6月には米国から関連研究者を招聘し、一橋大学・早稲田大学・神戸大学においてコンファンランス・研究報告会を開催し、また2014年3月には欧州から関連研究者を招聘して一橋大学・名古屋大学において同様にコンファンランス・研究報告会を開催した。年度後半には、研究分担者1名が欧州に研究滞在し関連研究調査を行った。さらに、2014年1月、米国経済学会大会に研究分担者2名が参加し、うち1名が学会内の女性支援組織の協力を得てメンタリング・ワークショップに見学参加し、若手育成のためにどのような支援が必要であるか実地に知見を得た。
    これに並行して、日本におけるデータ調査の検討を進めた。研究分担者の研究中間報告から、日本の大学教員へのアンケート調査分析結果から女性は男性より給与が5%程度結果低いことが示され、この研究報告を含めて議論を進め、まず日本全体の大学の状況を公的統計によって把握する必要があるとの認識で一致し、文部科学省「学校基本調査」「学校教員統計調査」の公表データ並びに調査票の精査を行った。前者においては全高等教育機関について学部別・男女別の教員数と学年別学生数を把握でき、女性教員と女子学生の関連を調査できることがわかった。さらに後者はより詳細な教員の調査を含んでおり、男女別の給与、職階、産休・育休の取得、採用と前職、離職とその理由等を知ることができ、教員間の男女差の実態と要因把握を進めるための分析が可能であることがわかった。これをもとに調査票使用項目と分析モデルの構築を行い、データ使用申請の準備がほぼ整った。

    Project Year :

    2014.03
     

     View Summary

    The Baby Boomer Generation (BBG) born between 1947 and 1949 in Japan is called Dankai no Sedai and has been characterized by their particular cultures and ideologies held by their older and younger generations. This is probably in contrast to the situations of Western countries. The retiring process of BBG in Japan is also believed to be different.This project investigates the employment patterns and the decision-making processes about whether or not to continue working in the face of their own health issues and their own or family care needs. We found that the retiring processes of BBG are not particularly different from those experienced by their older generations. The extension of working age driven by legal reforms and voluntary measures taken by corporations did not seem to have a causal effect in avoiding drastic changes in the labor market partly because many people from the older generations also continued working after the legal retirement age

    2012   濱秋純哉

     View Summary

    Research outcome outline: The main object ofthis study is to investigate the relationship between individuals’ healthstatus and labor participation among middle-aged and elderly males in Japanusing a unique panel dataset. Our analysis focuses on three types of healthindicators based on respondents’ medical history in the three years precedingthe survey. To adjust for the potential endogeneity ofthese health variables, we use individuals’ body mass index at age 30 and theirparents’ medical history as instrumental variables. Our empirical resultsshow that a deterioration in health increases the probability of not workingand being retired and, moreover, tends to decrease individuals’ average workinghours per week. Further, splitting our sample, we find that the work status ofmales aged 60 or over is significantly more likely to be affected by having oneadditional illness and suffering from a lifestyle disease than that of under 60s.※当該研究成果は、一橋大学機関リポジトリのtechnical report(https://hermes-ir.lib.hit-u.ac.jp/rs/bitstream/10086/25586/1/DP599.pdf)として2013年3月に公表された後、2013年7月にオーストラリア・シドニーで開催された国際医療経済学会(International Health Economics Association: iHEA)にて口頭発表された。
