Telemedicine and e-Health

 Latest update: July 2023 

Japan’s ageing population, the shortage and uneven distribution of doctors, the steady depopulation of some areas, the development of communication tools and the increasing demand for physicians drives the telemedicine and e-Health market in Japan. Through the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, the government intends to replace some of the traditional tasks in healthcare and therefore to reduce costs. In the near future, Japan will become increasingly dependent on to utilizing data and ICT in the health, medical, and nursing care fields (Healthtech) to provide health support for every citizen. This sector offers numerous opportunities for EU SMEs in providing AI and IoT solutions in the medical domain.
