We report on triage before transportation by sharing patient information between hospitals, making it possible to use the Ajisai-net for 24 hours. Fifty-six times hospital collaboration was conducted during the period from start of hospital cooperation operation until October 2018. Transportation cost reduction of 3,935,000 yen (34,620 dollars) was estimated. It is expected to contribute to improvement of efficiency of emergency medical care in North Kyushu.
