Hospital function index
The national university hospitals carry out education, research, and medical care activities, while promoting the roles and functions of the institutions in the recent changes in social situations and acknowledging the methods of social contributions in the area of medicine and medical care.
Also, as public institutions that operate on public funds (such as health care fee and the subsidy for operating expense), the national university hospitals are obliged to disclose information on the activities and results of activities to the society and fulfill the responsibility for the explanation.
The hospital function index for national university hospitals was established by the board of director-generals of national university hospitals as a common indicator that enables the national university hospitals in Japan to improve their quality of functions in an independent and proactive manner, as well as to disclose the status and results of activities to the society in order to acquire their understanding and trust.
The University of Yamanashi Hospital will publish the evaluation index according to the principles stated above.
