Current and Past Project
  • The project works in an attempt to retrieve knowledge on patient safety from a database odf adverse event in medicine through artificial intelligence (Ai).
  • In the revision of Japanese Medical Payment System in the fiscal year of 2018, new item for the payemnt of additional medical fee called "Patient Safety Network Formation Fee" was devised. Hospitals who seek the \fee is required to conduct on-saite survey of othe hospital(s) in tems of the system for assuring patien safety. This project aimes at formulating list of items for evaluating the system for assuring patient safety in individual hospitals.
  • Information Communication Technology is expected to paly a greater role in patient safety in Japanese hospitals. This proect will try to grasp the ICT system which has worled in hospitals in terms of its function, effectivemess, susability etc. Eventually, it will propose the idea of standard element which should be included in hospital ICT system for safer care in Japanese hospitals.
  • It aims to build a novel system for adverse event reporting and learning system of long-term care facility which Japanese residents will increasingly utilize. Effective measure to distribute preventative measures to the adverse enents will also developed.
  • Measures to enhance cooperation between clinical department and pathological department for patient safety is studied and comparative indicators for benchmarking the effectiveness of in-house patient safety system is formulated.
  • Local governments has equipped a division to contact patients in the local community on line and/or face-to-face to enhance patient safety and build trust between patient and medical institutions over the last ten years under the Health Service Law in Japan. What the division, called "patient safety support center", have conducted for patient safety remains greatly diverse and it is vital to study the situation of the performance of the centers and normalize it. The reserch take the methotology in accordance with PDCA cycle and get the knowledge of the performance by on site visit and/or a questionnair survey to the center and make an effective feedback to the nationwide centers.
  • The study group reserches detail of the planned new peer-review system for accidental clinical death in medicine under the revised Health Service Law and envision the framework and details of the system which is to be referred by the government to craft operating guidline of the system.

Educational
Educational Activities
I provide staffs in Kyushu University Hospital and medical students with a lecture on patient safety promotion with wide variety of topics from in-house issue to nationwide and/or worldwide issues regarding patient safety.
Particularly, some recent rectures focuses on the new investigation/prevention system of accidental death in medicine which was launched by the government according to the Health Service Law on Oct 1, 2015.
On ocsasions of staff's and student's educations, knowledgegaied through international meetings and congresses is included in agensdas of internal meetings with staff members and lectures for students.
Other Educational Activities
  • 2019.03, I attended the 4th Global Ministerial Sumit on Patient Safety as oneof the delegates of the Japanese Government and in addition I made a speech on ISQua Declaration on patient safety..
  • 2018.04, I delivered a lecture on national patient safety systems, particularly, adverse event reporting and learning system which has been operated by the Japan Council for Quality Health Care (JQ) according to the ministaetrial ordinance in the 3rd Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety in April 2018..
Social
Professional and Outreach Activities
I have been operaing nationwide adverse event reporting system, the Japan obstetric compenasation system for cerebral palsy and relevant projects in Japan Council for Quality Health Care(JQ). In addition, the Japanese government passed a revised Health Service Law to build a new peer-review system for accidental clinical death which was launched Oct 1, 2015. With the knowledge of the above project in JQ, I joined the goverment's preliminary study group to design the new peer-review system and crafted a report on the system.
Those systems described above are well described as adverse event reporting and learning system. Coincidently, Department of Service Delivery of WHO(World Health Organization) is now focusing on the introduction of adverse event reporting and lerning system to middle to low income countries (MLICs) to raise quality and safety of healthcare in those countries. Therefore, JQ is in recent years is frequently asked for an opportunity to deliver a lecture on the Japanese systems on occasion of WHO inter-regional technical consultation meetings. On behalf of JQ, I joined three such occasions as Italy, Sri Lanka and Oman in 2016 for the lecture and guidance in charge. In 2018, the 3rd Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety was held by the Government of Japan Tokyo in which I had worked as a member of steering committee and delivered a lecture in a session on the nationwide patient safety system in Japan. I also delivered a lecture or speech on other occasion held by indicvidual state and region..
