Medical Information Management Office

Hironobu Ohmatsu, Tokiko Inagaki


The Medical Information Management Office is a department for managing the medical records of hospitals by professional medical information management officers.

Routine activities

  • Auditing Discharge Summary (quantitative inspection)
    Data on discharge summaries should be entered and approved by the attending physician (Table 1). We inspected and checked the summaries and, where required, gave some advice for correct input.
  • Maintenance of disease codes based on ICD-10
  • Analysis of medical contents on DPC (Diagnostic Procedure Combination) and recommendation for efficiency.

Future prospects

We would like to make recommendations and proposals of good and effective medical care based on DPC data. Each department has held the “DPC round”.
