Robots in healthcare are being developed rapidly, as they offer wide-ranging medical applications and care solutions. However, it is quite challenging to develop high-quality, patient-centered, communication-efficient robots. This can be attributed to a multitude of barriers such as technology maturity, diverse healthcare practices, and humanizing innovations. In order to engineer an ideal Humanoid-Nurse Robots (HNRs), a profound integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and information system like nursing assessment databases for a better nursing care delivery model is required. As a specialized nursing database in psychiatric hospitals, the Psychiatric Nursing Assessment Classification System and Care Planning System (PsyNACS©) has been developed by Ito et al., to augment quality and safe nursing care delivery of psychiatric health services. This chapter describes the nursing landscape in Japan, PsyNACS© as a specialized nursing database, the HNRs of the future, and the future artificial brain for HNRs linking PsyNACS© with AI through deep learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP).
