Director, Division of Medical Informatics

Hideo Gobara, Professor

The Division of Medical Informatics aims at enhancing medical care service in the hospital, as well as contributing to medical education and research through operating and developing a hospital information management system, with effective management of medical records and medical history information.

Management System

Full-time staff members consist of the director and a few assistant professers. Under the cooperation of the staff members of the Division of Medical Informatics who are appointed concurrently in various professions, we work with the Medical Affairs Section and engineers of system vendors, as well as with 14 health information managers for the inspection of medical records and DPC coding.

Management Policy

Although the hospital is constituted by staff of various departments and professions, we aim to build a harmonious hospital information system as a whole. We undertake the role of interpreter and coordinator among staff involved in medical care and SEs involved in system development.
The service contents encompass a wide range, from the introduction of new systems and the improvement of the existing systems to education to staff, to various troubleshooting and response to network security. Health information managers inspect medical records to respond to the demands of the present age, such as medical records disclosure. Furthermore, they prepare basic data for hospital management in addition to statistical data in response to various requests.
