HMC’s Hawai’i Pacific Oncology Center Adopts MEDITECH
Our friends at Hilo Medical Center (HMC) are making headlines once again. Not only has HMC recently signed for our new Web-Ambulatory EHR, the affiliated Hawai’i Pacific Oncology Center (HPOC) just implemented MEDITECH’s Oncology 6.x solution to advance cancer care.
“Implementing electronic medical records in HPOC benefits outpatients and improves the cancer care they are receiving right here at home in Hilo,” Dan Brinkman, interim East Hawai’i Regional CEO of Hawai’i Health Systems Corporation said in a recent Big Island Now article.
HPOC is the ninth clinic to move toward a complete paperless environment with MEDITECH. Julie Leach, HPOC Nurse Manager said in HMC’s press release, “The electronic chart allows information to be at the fingertips of the community doctors that refer patients to HPOC. This will make it easier to collaborate in the care and treatment of our patients."
