Contributing to healthcare by addressing the problem of a shortage of specialist doctors in community medicine


I am currently a working physician practicing at a local core hospital, but I have worked at numerous hospitals in the past. I have worked part-time at university hospitals where I could always provide advanced medical care, as well as at hospitals in rural areas where there was a shortage of doctors. I have also worked in tertiary emergency hospitals, nominal emergency hospitals, and clinics.

At universities and core hospitals, we can receive in-house consultation services if we have any problems in the treatment that are outside of our medical specialty. At universities, consultation services are available 24 hours a day, almost 365 days a year, including on-call services. Non-university hospitals may also provide in-house consultation services, at least during the day shift on weekdays. However, in rural hospitals, there may be no hematologists or rheumatologists in internal medicine. That is, they may not have full-time or even part-time staff. When a patient with a suspected blood disorder or collagen disease is treated, the diagnosis and treatment of the disease can be a problem.

Medii Inc, established in February 2020, aims to solve this problem of a shortage of medical specialists in regional healthcare.
