Hospital Navi, which has two portals, was developed in order to search medical information. Here, the database is always refreshed, unlike other medical information sites, since medical information updated to the server is obtained monthly from eight local governments throughout the country. Moreover, Hospital Navi can indicate hospitals/clinics that are open at the point in time in Nagoya or Ichinomiya city in Aichi prefecture. In this project, volunteer doctors who are registered can change their clinic hours daily, and the results are uploaded on the web automatically. It is suggested that Hospital Navi is available for such emergency as the outbreak of influenza in 2009.
