Outline of the department

This office coordinates a patient's transition between health care settings, mainly between a clinician's office and our hospital. It arranges appointments for medical consultations and special examinations at clinicians' request. Reports of the findings are sent to the referring physicians through the office. It promotes early referral of acute-phase in-patients to other facilities in the community including rehabilitation centers and clinicians' offices. It also contributes to giving patients and their family advice on health, medicine, and welfare.
