Japan-based nursing home operator and insurer Sompo Holdings are using technology developed in collaboration with U.S. data analysis company Palantir to alleviate a caregiver shortage in that nation.
The partners' software platform integrates artificial intelligence and analytics with proprietary data on sleep, diet, medical treatment, and exercise.
Sompo home care manager Takako Kojima said using such data analysis methods helps to lighten caregivers' loads and to personalize care provision.
Last year, Kojima's facility equipped its beds to evaluate sleep conditions with sensors that quantify body movements, respiration, and heart rate so caregivers can anticipate when residents might need help at night.
Sompo said the technology can cut 15% of the workload in a typical 60-person capacity care facility, saving as much as $60,000 annually.
