08/12/2020 | 02:08am EDT

NTT DATA has adopted the technology owned by Binah.ai (CEO: David Maman) for determining contactless vital signs and will initiate demonstrations on August 1st, aiming to add a function of determining vital signs by photographing a human face with a smartphone camera which is then transferred to Health Data Bank®. Health Data Bank is a health management service provided by NTT DATA to approximately 2,000 organizations consisting of 4 million employees.

The aim of this demonstration is to realize a new method of healthcare management by remotely extracting vital signs without contact and solving occupational health issues in the post COVID-19 world.
The vital signs measured by this technology are oxygen saturation*, respiratory rate, heart rate and stress level, with more measurements planned be made available in the future.

Based on the results of this demonstration, NTT DATA plans to launch this service in October 2020, aiming to provide this technology to 200 organizations with 400,000 employees by the end of FY2022 (March 2023).

* Blood oxygen saturation: Important vital sign used as an index to assess the severity of COVID-19.


Due to the future decline in the working population, the field of health management has been attracting increased attention. In addition, with recent changes in working styles, such as the increase in telecommuting, there is a need for changes in the way companies handle employees' health management in the field of occupational health. Until now, occupational health checks have basically conducted on site at a medical facility.

NTT DATA will undertake a demonstration related to remote and contactless occupational health activities using the contactless vital sign extraction technology of Binah.ai. Through this demonstration, we will address new health issues in congruence with the diversification of working styles in order to realize a new method of health management.

About the demonstration

In this demonstration, we will create a prototype application and verify the effectiveness of remote occupational health activities in cooperation with companies and occupational physicians.

Available data:
Heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, and stress level

Data to be extracted:
Body temperature, blood pressure, blood alcohol concentration, hemoglobin level

(2)Demonstration of our hypothesis
It is becoming difficult to obtain vital data such like blood pressure which is important in the prevention of lifestyle-related and other diseases while working in a dispersed, remote environment. We propose that, by linking these vital data points with medical examination data stored in the Health Data Bank, it will be possible to ensure the continued quality of occupational health.

(3)Demonstration procedure

August 1, 2020 - September 30, 2020 (Scheduled)

(5)Number of people for data extraction * Target value
Approx. 1,000 people

About Health Data Bank

Health Data Bank is a health management service provided by NTT DATA. As of the end of March 2020, the system has been used for health management of about 2,000 organizations and 4 million people. In addition to the functions necessary for occupational health management, it provides functions for risk prediction related to lifestyle diseases and potential leave of absences using AI as well as acting as a health management dashboard that visualizes health conditions for each organization.

About Binah.ai

In this demonstration, the contactless vital sign extraction technology has been adopted, which is owned by Binah ai, an Israeli company and won the top award for 'The 10th Global Open Innovation Contest presented by From the Port of Toyosu®' (Note 1).

This technology enables the measurement of blood oxygen saturation, respiration rate, heart rate, stress value, etc. by photographing a human face with a smartphone camera, and in the future, blood pressure and skin temperature, etc. will be made available. These measurement results are important for daily health management and also include important vital signs as indicators to assess the severity of COVID-19.

About the future

After verifying the demonstration results, NTT DATA plans to launch this service in October 2020.

In addition to corporate health management, this function is expected to be utilized for telemedicine at medical institutions and for collaborative services in other industries. At the same time, since the promotion of remote and contactless health management is an international issue. Therefore, we are aiming to rollout these services globally.

NTT DATA will continuously work with various business partners to support people's healthy lives and create a safe and secure society.
