 FRONTEO Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Masahiro Morimoto, hereafter FRONTEO) and Medical Care Service Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Saitama City, Saitama Prefecture, President: Norio Yamamoto, hereafter MCS) , We will start a verification test for the development of a fall prediction AI system based on the care records recorded at the care facility.


 MCS is a group company of Gakken Holdings Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, President: Hiroaki Miyahara, hereinafter Gakken HD). FRONTEO and Gakken HD entered into a business and capital alliance in November 2020.1), This verification test is conducted as part of this. MCS operates 280 group homes for the elderly with dementia, paid elderly homes with long-term care, and small-scale multifunctional home care.In addition, we are promoting DX (digital transformation) in the field of long-term care, and by utilizing ICT such as long-term care recording systems and long-term care robots in the facilities we operate, we aim to improve the productivity of long-term care sites and the quality of care. We are incorporating technology into long-term care.


 Falling / falling of the elderly may lead to death as well as the need for long-term care / bedridden condition and the progression of dementia.Furthermore, in long-term care facilities, it is extremely important to prevent falls because the occurrence of falls may affect the relationship of trust between the facility and the resident's family.On the other hand, in facilities that are "places of living," excessive fall / fall prevention can lead to behavioral restrictions, and ensuring safety and maintaining the freedom of behavior and QOL of the elderly are a major factor in nursing care. This is one of the challenges.


 Based on this situation, FRONTEO will work with MCS to develop new software that will solve these issues by utilizing FRONTEO's unique AI technology and experience in the medical field.FRONTEO's fall prediction AI system "Coroban", which has already been launched, predicts the risk of falls of inpatients based on nursing records recorded in electronic medical records at medical institutions. We will verify the prediction accuracy of the fall risk of facility residents by targeting nursing care records of group homes operated by.


 If this test demonstrates that FRONTEO's fall prediction AI system can be widely used not only in medical institutions but also in nursing care facilities, it will prevent falls in the elderly, improve the QOL of the elderly, and reduce the burden on nursing care sites. We believe that we can contribute to. FRONTEO will continue to strive to provide solutions for solving problems in medical and long-term care sites through research and development of AI systems.


 The impact of this matter alone on FRONTEO's business results for the current fiscal year is minor, but we will promptly notify you if there are any matters to be disclosed.
