Market Overview

The healthcare sector is gradually adopting artificial intelligence (AI) technologies that are becoming more and more common in modern business and daily life. Healthcare professionals may benefit from using artificial intelligence in many areas of patient care and standard operating procedures, as it will enable them to build on current solutions and solve problems more quickly. The majority of AI and healthcare technologies have a substantial impact on the healthcare industry; however, hospitals and other healthcare organizations may use different strategies as a result. Japan has a great possibility to lead in the field of medical AI due to its distinct national healthcare system, as well as its abundant healthcare and socioeconomic characteristics.


In 2016, Japan established the AI Technology Strategy Council and identified AI as a crucial technology pillar for its "Society 5.0" 5th Science and Technology Basic Plan. Furthermore, the Japanese government has also established partnerships with business and academic organizations to create ten AI-enhanced hospitals. Additionally, partnerships between hospitals and businesses are taking AI system-wide rather than just at the bedside. For instance, Fujitsu Ltd. has made an effort to include AI in both administrative processes and the administration of medical information.

Driving Factors

The AI capability in Japan is largely centered in the industry and research facilities. Numerous regional, national, and worldwide initiatives are fostering the development of a medical AI workforce. Software using artificial intelligence (AI), notably the branch of AI known as machine learning (ML), has become an increasingly important component of a growing variety of medical devices as technology continues to advance every area of health care.


The existing healthcare industry is being transformed by smart wearables in a significant way. They are employed in many different applications, such as heart rate monitoring, step counting, blood pressure monitoring, and many more. To provide an interactive response, this generates data that must be processed and examined. AI can aid in this situation by quickly analyzing and processing data.


Restraining Factors

Despite the fact that Artificial Intelligence (AI) has numerous applications in healthcare, its use is limited. The complexity that healthcare providers must deal with is the cause of this. Artificial intelligence may introduce errors and leave a breach between patient prescriptions for prescribed medications and the diagnosis. The risk to patient data safety is further increased by issues like the unethical collection of sensitive data.


COVID 19 Impacts

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a favorable impact on a number of healthcare-related businesses, including AI in healthcare. Although the idea of using AI in healthcare isn't really revolutionary, its implementation during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis has demonstrated the technology's potential in the industry. Through personalized information and learning, AI tools are rapidly being used to detect and diagnose viruses and respond to outbreaks.
