    The system of emergency medical services in Japan in its current form has been planned in the 60's, and the first centers started to operate in 1977. In the last years, we have observed some of its shortcomings, in particular the unacceptable times between the call and the admission to the hospital. The bottleneck is often the search for the suitable hospital for the particular type of patient. As a case study, we have analyzed the problems that occur in the Nara prefecture. For this purpose we have created new widgets for data mining suite Orange. First, we developed preprocessing widgets. After that we focused on several geo-specific and time-specific widgets. We then used the newly developed widgets to perform data analysis. Research with the new widgets clearly showed the distribution of patients in hospitals and enabled us to specify the main reasons for refusing the patients in some of the hospitals. Generally it enabled us to make suggestions on how to distribute work of the doctors for each hospital, so they would be able to serve as many patients as possible and by doing so reduce the number of refused calls.
