Development of emergency medical service system

Hyogo established the "Hyogo Emergency Medical Center" as a core facility of emergency medical activities and developed emergency medical system by securing emergency base hospitals throughout the prefecture.[2003]

Hyogo streamlined its regional disaster and emergency medical information systems in order to promote the sharing of disaster medical information, including the status of medical facilities.

Another purpose of the system was to integrate and deliver the information on how to provide medical and relief services swiftly and properly in disaster-affected areas.
