Effects of the Revised Operating Guidelines on the Attending Hospital Program in Korea
Korea has faced with the problems of utilization of doctor 's expertise, utilization of medical resources, and recruiting the physician of small hospitals. As an alternative policy that solves these problems, an attending hospital system has been implemented since 2003, but it has not been activated. So the government revised the open hospital operation guidelines for the activation of the attending hospital system in 2009.
