South Korea’s medical AI company Lunit Inc. announced on Wednesday its participation in Saudi Arabia’s ambitious national project Vision 2030, specifically sharing its expertise for the SEHA Virtual Hospital initiative.

According to Lunit, the SEHA Virtual Hospital project aims to revolutionize healthcare in Saudi Arabia by introducing cutting-edge digital technologies, including medical AI, across medical institutions nationwide. The ultimate objective is to deliver exceptional healthcare services to patients, leveraging the power of advanced digital solutions.

The Saudi government plans to invest a total of $66 billion to build healthcare infrastructure and increase private sector participation to 65 percent, Lunit said.

To participate in the project, Lunit said it has installed its chest X-ray AI image analysis solution Lunit Insight CXR and mammography AI image analysis solution Lunit Insight MMG in a public healthcare virtual hospital under the Saudi Ministry of Health.

Lunit INSIGHT MMG, one of Lunit’s most sophisticated radiology products, showcases remarkable capabilities in accurately analyzing mammography images.

Lunit said it will confirm the clinical safety and efficacy of its AI solutions and conduct a product performance evaluation by November. If the performance evaluation is successful, the products will be used in the National Cancer Screening and Tuberculosis Testing program in 170 state-run virtual hospitals across Saudi Arabia.
