Division for Medical Information
The goal of the Medical Information Office is to encourage residents to have a strong interest in dental health by engaging with this hospital and act to maintain and improve it.
For that, firstly it is essential to fully understand your own oral environment.
In our office, it goes without saying that we always provide accurate, prompt and effective information to hospital staff at all times, and we also want to contribute to clinical research and new technology development.
Through these efforts, in the near future, we would like to start the trial one step ahead to contribute to the improvement of the quality and quantity of dental health such as continuous observation of the oral health environment of the residents and predicting the disease individually.
As a medical institution specializing in the maxillofacial oral cavity area, this hospital has been proceeding with the deployment of information science technology in this area.
As a result, almost all the work has been digitized.
Our office is responsible for its management.
In particular, we pay close attention to the management of patient’s important personal information, we have made extensive measures, including setting up a server room with the latest security facilities. The integrated hospital information system of this hospital is developed on a common platform with Osaka university medical hospital, and we are trying to make appropriate cooperation in various aspects from the design stage.
Also, in order to contribute to achieve the safe and secure medical care, we are tightly collaborating with the Medical Safety Management Division of this hospital.
Research using medical information is expected to accelerate with the enforcement of the next-generation medical infrastructure law. At our hospital, Social Smart Dental Hospital initiative has started, and we are developing dental artificial intelligence (AI) mainly with utilization of secure medical information jointly with various enterprises and faculties etc. In addition, we are also working on realizing digital dentistry that digitizes all dental laboratory processes. In our office we hope to maximize the benefits of patients by supporting clinical research, and to lead to the improvement of residents’ dental health.
