Guided by its motto ‘Never refuse to help’, Saiseikai Kumamoto Hospital (SKH) provides free and heavily-subsidised medical care to low income patients in Japan, as well as to residents of sparsely populated areas of the country. However in the absence of a centralised patient information management system, SKH was having a hard time living up to its goal of providing local medical care. With 400 beds, SKH is the major hospital in the Prefecture, providing acute-care and remaining open around-the-clock. More than 9000 patients are brought to the hospital by ambulance every year.
