Research Content:

Nowadays, innovative digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR) & augmented reality (AR), and IoT has been pervasively used in many industries. Ever since market launch of AI-used SaMD (Software as a Medical Device) in 2020, more than twenty products have obtained pharmaceutical approval. Deployment of AI-used SaMD is underway at some medical institutions.

SaMD used to be designed mainly for radiation images and endoscopes, but in recent years it has widened the modality and target diseases, which has increased the participating companies. As regulators have been under reform such as in organizational structure, inspection flows, and legislation, there will be environmental changes by FY2022 including granting of incentives in the medical fee system to for utilizing AI in healthcare.
