FRONTEO to Exhibit AI-Based Healthcare Solutions at the International Modern Hospital Show 2016

TOKYO, July 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FRONTEO, Inc. (“FRONTEO”) (Nasdaq:FTEO) (TSE:2158), a leading provider of international litigation support and big-data analysis services, and FRONTEO Healthcare, Inc. (“FRONTEO Healthcare”), a wholly-owned FRONTEO subsidiary providing medical data analysis solutions, will exhibit at the International Modern Hospital Show 2016 at Tokyo Big Sight from July 13th through the 15th. At the event, the companies will showcase their healthcare solutions using artificial intelligence (“AI”) technology, including a system to mitigate patients’ risk of falling as well as a system to provide for the early diagnosis of potential mental disorders.

The system uses AI technology to detect signs of physical weakness through the analysis of text data contained in electronic medical records and day-to-day examination records. Since FRONTEO and FRONTEO Healthcare started co-developing the AI-based system with NTT Medical Center Tokyo in March 2015, researchers have made major progress on its prediction accuracy. Today, the system is yielding increasingly accurate results with its evaluation methodology monitoring for the risk of falling, as compared to other evaluation methods. The companies will display applications that will soon be used in a real-world setting.

At the event, FRONTEO will also present a seminar on the development status of medical equipment utilized for the qualitative evaluation of mental disorders, a project commissioned by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED), as well as on the improvement of quality control and patient feedback analysis.

Details of FRONTEO’s exhibition booth and seminar are as follows:
