Examples of Creating New Value in the Fields of Healthcare and Caregiving(Society 5.0)

New value in the fields of healthcare and caregiving

In Society 5.0, new value can be generated in the following ways: through AI analysis of big data spanning diverse types of information, including personal real-time physiological data, healthcare-site information, treatment/infection information, and environmental information, and the following will be realized.

・Enable a comfortable living on one’s own by using robots to provide living support and conversation partners

・Promote healthy living and early detection of illnesses through real-time automatic health checkups

・Provide optimal treatment anywhere through the sharing of physiological and medical data

・Use robots to ease the on-site burden of healthcare and caregiving

Furthermore, for society on the whole, these solutions will help reduce the social costs associated with healthcare and caregiving and solve labor-shortage problems at healthcare sites.
