Japanese Hospital Enhances Information-Sharing with New Online Portal
Fukui Saiseikai Hospital was established in 1911 by Imperial decree of the Meiji Emperor. It is a comprehensive medical facility providing leading community healthcare for the Hokuriku region as well as cancer treatment, acute care, and preventative care. In 2003, Fukui Saiseikai Hospital implemented the Saiseikai Quality Management System, an organizational operating structure, and incorporated the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) management method. To better implement the BSC, the hospital is deploying a new online portal based on Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007. The portal is allowing medical staff to collaborate more easily, thanks to more efficient information-sharing, and is helping the hospital achieve its goal of providing more complete healthcare.
