健康・医療Gathering Medical Information System on COVID-19 (G-MIS)
○The MHLW and the Cabinet Secretariat's IT Office have collaborated to establish an Information Transmission Base Center (tentative name). The aim of this center is to make the operational status of hospitals available to the public and to help secure the necessary medical services system by, for instance, utilizing such information to distribute equipment (e.g., masks) and coordinate the transportation of patients. This is done by centrally collecting information on the operational status of hospitals, the availability of hospital wards and medical staff, and the procurement of medical equipment (e.g., mechanical ventilators) and medical personal protective equipment (e.g., masks and protective clothing) from medical institutions nationwide (approx. 8,000 hospitals with ≥ 20 beds).
○Information on the status of the medical services system in medical institutions nationwide has been published (β version) (April 8, 2020)
Government CIO's Portal: Created by the National Strategy Office of Information and Communications Technology, Cabinet Secretariat
The MHLW is working with the Cabinet Secretariat to perform daily reviews of the status of the medical services system in hospitals with hospitalization wards (≥ 20 beds) nationwide. This page provides the public with information on the current status of outpatients, hospitalization, and emergency functions in hospitals.
Some hospitals currently restrict the admission of new patients with cold symptoms to prevent the spread of in-hospital COVID-19 infections. Note that signs with messages such as "Partial restrictions in place" or "Service suspended" do not mean that COVID-19 infections have been identified in these hospitals.
