With the rapid development of core technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution (big data, artificial intelligence, hyperconnectivity, etc.), the importance of Software as Medical Device (SaMD) has emerged.
Conventional medical software was built into hardware medical devices to support the hardware, but recently, the software itself provides functions that correspond to the definition of a medical device.
Although SaMD itself can not replace doctors, it helps to treat patients more effectively, such as disease prediction, clinical decision support, and patient-medical personnel interaction.
‘SaMD Special Exhibition’ focuses on software medical devices integrated with information and communication technology.
