In order to promote differentiation of medical care and create an efficient cooperation system of care and welfare resources, four studies was conducted aimed at standardization of hospital discharge support in acute care hospitals. Studies consist of 1.Statistical analysis of discharge risk screening, 2.Analysis of patient's care environment after discharge, 3.Analysis of regional medical and healthcare resources and 4.Evaluate function of discharge support in university
hospitals. Because of very high individuality for discharge support of each patients, standardization by type, etc. is difficult. Therefore, it is important to carry out individual intervention on the basis of a detailed
and up-to-date information about the social environment of the patient and the regional medical and healthcare resources. There is a need for standardization of various types of data collection and analysis techniques, and discharge support intervention according to hospital function.
