This publication contains the presentations held during the Second Finland-Sendai Seminar in September 2006, discussing the total cost efficiency and profitability of health and social services in Japan and Finland. Comparative data will help both countries develop the effectiveness and cost efficiency of services. This publication compiles 16 presentations that shed light on the future challenges regarding costs and profitability faced by services for the elderly in Finland and Japan. It focuses on the cost structure, cost correlation and production of health and social services for the elderly in the public and private sectors, and on data for analysis and research. The publication also includes the preliminary results of the Active research and development project, which aims at developing services for senior citizens.
