PHC Group’s Growth Areas (Graphic: Business Wire)

Our Value Creation Strategy Focuses on Realizing “Value-Based Healthcare”

Since the original Mid-term Plan was released in June 2021, PHC Group has initiated new commercial partnerships, expanded investments in our core business domains and completed its listing on the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s First Section (current Prime market) in October 2021. At the same time, increasing healthcare costs and disparities in access to healthcare, caused by issues like geographic location and income, continue to be critical challenges around the world. In light of these challenges, PHC Group has updated its global business strategy to focus on contributing to “Value-Based Healthcare,” a healthcare delivery model that seeks to maximize healthcare outcomes for patients based on their individual needs, which can lead to better care as well as improved cost-effectiveness.

Specifically, PHC Group will seek to strengthen its three core business domains while leveraging synergies among those businesses to target three new growth areas:

Strategy on Foundation (Core Business Domains)

  • Diabetes Management: PHC Group will expand new business opportunities for blood glucose monitoring systems (BGM) in emerging markets and enhance growth business such as continuous glucose monitoring system (CGM).
  • Healthcare Solutions: The Medicom (healthcare IT) business in Japan will seek to capitalize on demand from the shift to cloud-based electronic medical record (EMR) systems and Japanese government-led policies. The LSI Medience (clinical testing services and diagnostic reagents) business will enhance cancer and genetic testing and boost clinical trials and point-of-care testing (POCT) businesses outside of Japan.
  • Diagnostics & Life Sciences: The PHCbi (biomedical) business will develop new products with energy-saving performance and internet of things (IoT) technology, and also optimize its global operations in development and manufacturing. The Epredia (anatomical pathology) business will seek to increase its market share by upgrading product quality and tapping into sales channels by region and segment used by PHC Group Business.

Strategy for Growth

  • Personalized Testing and Diagnostic Solutions: The diabetes management business, including Ascensia and PHC IVD, will promote sales of its innovative CGM and develop POCT technologies.
  • Digital Health Solutions: Medicom and LSI Medience will integrate their healthcare management businesses including annual health check programs to advance health support including preventive medicine for individuals. They will advance solutions that assist the workflow for healthcare professionals such as administrative support services efficiently managed by AI. To contribute to reducing healthcare costs and enhancing treatments, PHC Group will work to integrate and analyze health data.
  • Advanced Therapy Development Solutions: The Epredia and PHCbi businesses will leverage one another’s customer networks in pharmaceutical companies to expand sales globally for both brands. Expanded product portfolios will include new equipment for cell metabolism analysis and anatomical pathology, and high-quality, high-speed models for diagnostics using AI will be developed for hospitals.
