Case Study Highlights
Japan has long been recognized as the oldest country in the world, with close to 30% of its population being over 65 (1) and one fifth is over 70 years of age (2). On the one hand, it poses a challenge for the country’s healthcare industry; on the other hand, it opens up opportunities for healthcare service providers to reinvent their industries with technology innovations.
As AI has been proving itself as a critical component for future healthcare to improve the well-being of society, a wide array of applicable use cases has been developed and rolled out across the globe, and Japan is no exception.
This case study will discuss how AI has been leveraged by a Japanese business to speed up and optimize physical movement assessment in elderly patients while releasing the burden from nurses and doctors.
