Electronic medical records can be issued by Japanese companies like Mitsubishi Corp. and NTT Docomo to provide the same basic services as regular ones.
You pay for the data, and then you can use it to fill out a medical record, check on someone’s health, and send out your own medical records.
Here’s how it works.1.
Get a Japanese e-visa card (PDF) You need a Japanese electronic medical record (EMRR) card to get electronic medical treatment in Japan.
The cards cost about 500 yen ($6.95) plus tax.2.
Get your Japanese passport and a Japanese ID card You need both.
The passport is for your travel document.
You can use your Japanese ID if you don’t have a Japanese passport.
If you don, your passport and ID card must be in the same country.
You’ll need a passport that’s valid for at least one year, which is usually from October 2020 to December 2021.
You’ll also need a valid Japanese ID.
You should have a valid passport or ID card from the time you apply for a Japanese EMR card.3.
Apply online to get an electronic doctor card You’ll need to fill in an application form online.
You must fill it out in Japanese and give it to the company you want to use to fill it.
The company will give you a certificate that you’re registered with the company, so it’s legal.4.
Get the card at a local Japanese hospitalYou’ll pay about 2,000 yen ($2.99) for the card.5.
You fill out an application onlineYou’ll have to fill a medical document form with a doctor you’ve met in person.
You have to have the Japanese ID for that document.
If the form says you’re applying to a specific doctor, that’s fine, but if it says you can get electronic treatment from another doctor, you’ll have a hard time filling it out.
The online form is the easiest way to do it.6.
Get an electronic certificate to prove that you’ve been to JapanYou have to submit an application to your local hospital that shows you’ve gone to Japan twice and you’ve seen the doctors you want.
The doctor will then take the certificate and give you the electronic medical certificate.7.
Pay the fee and wait in lineThe electronic medical certificates can take about three weeks to process.
The hospital won’t charge you for the wait, but you’ll still have to pay the fee to get your medical treatment.
The waiting time can be up to two weeks, but they say the waiting time varies based on how many times you’ve had your medical conditions checked in the hospital.8.
Send your medical record online You have until November 2020 to send your electronic medical document to your doctor.
You also have to include a date and time that your medical condition was checked in, along with your Japanese identity, if you have one.
The medical documents can’t be sent from Japan directly.
The process takes three weeks.
