Japan Post Group, IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Apple today announced a first-of-its-kind initiative aimed at improving the quality of life for millions of Japanese senior citizens.

• iPad and its intuitive built-in apps, capabilities and features including FaceTime, Messages, Mail, Photos and iCloud Photo Sharing, along with access to rich content in the App Store, iTunes Store and iBooks Store. iOS 8, offering award-winning accessibility features, including settings for low vision and hearing impaired users.

• Custom-built apps specifically for the elderly by IBM Global Business Services for reminders and alerts about medications, exercise and diet, along with direct access to community activities and supporting services such as grocery shopping and job matching.

• Exclusive cloud services of the IBM MobileFirst for iOS platform, for data integration and security, analytics, and management of millions of devices; along with systems integration services and training for Japan Post Group employees.

• Pioneering text analytics and accessibility technologies, many invented in IBM Research - Tokyo, including Japanese natural language analysis and tracking to guide seniors and make the experience more natural.

“What we're starting today draws on IBM's long heritage of innovation at the intersection of technology, business and society,"
said Ginni Rometty, President, Chairman and CEO of IBM.
“The potential we see here - as broad as national economics and as specific as the quality of life of individuals and their families - is one example of the potential of mobile-led transformation anywhere in the world where issues of an aging population exist.”

“This initiative has potential for global impact, as many countries face the challenge of supporting an aging population, and we are honored to be involved in supporting Japan’s senior citizens and helping enrich their lives,"
said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.
“iPad is incredibly intuitive, easy to use and has accessibility features built in, making it a perfect device for any generation to be connected and engaged.”

Addressing a global priority

As a percentage of global population, the elderly will increase from 11.7 percent in 2013 to more than 21 percent by 2050.

Every day, 10,000 people turn 65, and 40 percent of seniors live alone or with their spouse only.

In Japan, these historic generational shifts contribute to an imbalance in the labor force, a concentration of wealth among people who tend to spend less than other age groups, and significant strain on extended families.

Today, nearly 180,000 people in Japan between the ages of 15 and 29 provide care for a family member.

Next steps

Japan Post Group's postal operations include the national Watch Over service.

For a nominal monthly fee, Japan Post Group personnel check in on elderly customers and assure families about the well-being of their relatives.

That service can now be extended and enhanced with iPad, complementing the in-person monitoring.

Japan Post Group will begin the pilot service in the second half of this year, which will be offered in conjunction with the Watch Over service.

The service will expand in stages, ultimately aiming to reach 4 million to 5 million customers in Japan by 2020.
