Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is a paradigm which maintains that medical interventions and health promotion measures should be performed in line with evidence backed by reliable data and appropriate analyses rather than experts' opinions and subjective experiences. The idea of EBM has been spreading all over the world. In this project, we explore ways to inhibit the expansion of medical expenditures without harming human health and attain effective health-oriented business management based on EBM. We also conduct studies on how to improve mental health and deal with cognitive decline prevention properly based on EBM.
