We will contribute to solving the shortage of human resources in the fields of medicine and nursing care.
As I developed my career as a nurse at several workplaces with different characteristics, such as a medical institution and the health management division of a private enterprise, I started doubting that "human resources are appropriately allocated in the fields of medicine and nursing care." When working for a medical institution, I saw my superiors and colleagues quitting one after another while the shortage of personnel was worsening. In Europe and the U.S., nursing tasks are classified finely, and staff other than nurses transport patients, change bed sheets, serve meals, conduct cleansing care, check vital signs, etc. In Japan, the separation of nursing tasks is insufficient in many cases. In these circumstances, Japanese nurses are exhausted, and we can't deny the fact that this is one of the reasons why nurses quit at a high rate. From my nursing experiences and survey results, I resolved to improve the nursing environment drastically as an entrepreneur with expertise in nursing. Our company's services have been already adopted by major medical institutions, exerting excellent performance. We sincerely hope that our services will support more medical and nursing-care institutions.
New approach for solving the issues with human resources in the fields of medicine and nursing care with technologies
While I was wishing to contribute to the world by means of science and technology by launching an IT business and researching cognitive neuroscience in the global environment, the president was hoping to solve the issues with human resources in the medicine and nursing care from her actual experiences as a nurse. The president and I sympathized with each other's ambition, and then founded A-LINE Co., Ltd. The issues with human resources in the fields of medicine and nursing care are closely related to the advent of AI. In the age of accelerating returns, the social systems that are changing incessantly at an accelerating pace are prodding us to change our sense of value and we need to have new ways of thinking and approaches for solving problems. As the year 2045 is expected to witness technological singularity, we will keep evolving to adapt, survive, and stay ahead.
