These two teams will further strengthen “data health,” analyzing health checkup results along with industrial physicians and public health nurses, as well as “collaborative health,” promoting specific measures in collaboration with the Otsuka Pharmaceutical Health Insurance Association, and will continue to promote the physical and mental health of employees and their families.
