Hospital Management

Hospital Management

Hospital Management mainly undertakes investigations related to hospital management, statistics and analysis, and support related to management improvement. The hospital maintains various data associated not only with clinic and research, but also with medical care. By organizing the data and presenting them to the hospital administration and each clinical division, we intend to improve the “quality of medical care” and contribute to putting into practice Okayama University Hospital’s philosophy and basic principles.

Management System

We undertake management in cooperation with members of Medical Fee Audit Office and Medical Information Management Office of Medical Affairs Division.

Management Policy

After becoming a national university corporation, Okayama University Hospital is no exception in needing to make management appropriate for our activities. It is proper to state that “appropriate and sound medical care provision in sound management” is our goal but simply ascertaining the management status of the hospital is important.
The introduction of electronic medical records and DPC clarifies the relations between medical practice and health insurance claim information, which was difficult in the past. The use of that information enables their transformation into data. We would like to point out issues to be improved based on the data. Furthermore, from this aspect, we think that the management of clinical pathway is important. The momentum of improving the “quality of medical care” in the search of the provision of better medical care is increasing in the hospital. Taking this opportunity, we undertake efforts to create data for an evaluation index by working with health information managers and provide additional feedback on basic data related to hospital management to all quarters.
