Health Matters at Tutu’s House

Throughout Hawai`i Island, health care providers have been changing their practices to improve the quality of health care available to us all. You have a role to play in this evolution and understanding your role can help you reap the benefits.

Among the changes, you may have noticed your health care providers using a computer during your appointment to capture your health information in an electronic health record. Physician, therapists, labs, and pharmacies are increasingly using electronic health records and other health information technology to securely increase provider access to health history, help reduce unnecessary duplication of services, and improve overall coordination of your health care.

You can learn more about what the Hawai`i Island health care evolution means to you at Health Matters, a series of monthly Tutu’s House presentations.

  • Wednesday, January 16, 7 to 8 pm, Melinda Nugent of the Hawai`i Island Beacon Community. Nugent will describe the improvements resulting from the transition from health care practices to patient care medical homes.
