Nightingale Health Japan KK, a fully owned subsidiary of Nightingale Health Plc (together “Nightingale”), is organising a pilot for its corporate health service at Japanese conglomerate Mitsui & Co Ltd. (“Mitsui”). The purpose of the pilot is to demonstrate how Nightingale’s wellbeing service can empower employees to take action to improve their daily lifestyle and develop better wellbeing with personal health information. The first phase of the pilot takes place on the 18th and 19th of November 2021, followed by the second phase in December 2021 and the third phase during the first quarter of 2022.

The pilot will consist of on-site blood draws at Mitsui’s headquarter in Tokyo, and the pilot participants will be provided their personal Nightingale blood test results at each phase of the pilot. The participants are encouraged to make positive lifestyle changes based on their results, and participants can easily follow their progress with follow-up tests. In the future, similar services can be provided by utilising Nightingale’s at-home testing solution.

Mitsui is one of the most diversified and comprehensive trading, investment and service enterprises in the world, with 130 offices in 63 countries as of September 2021, and revenue of 72.2 billion USD as of March 2021.

Nightingale considers substantial potential in the international corporate health market as it aims to provide concrete ways for companies to take better care of their employees and Nightingale’s holistic wellbeing solution is a great fit with this market need.

Teemu Suna, CEO and Co-founder of Nightingale:

“There is vast demand for impactful wellbeing solutions that companies can provide to their employees in Japan. The pilot with Mitsui is the first step to expand our Japan offering to companies looking for solutions to enhance employee health management by providing concrete tools for prevention.”
