Hawaii Health Systems Corp. Receives $14.3M for EHRs

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie announced the state has awarded more than $21.7 million allocated for capital improvements at facilities within Honolulu-based Hawaii Health Systems Corp.

Of that total, more than $14.3 million will go toward an electronic health record system. The news release did not indicate what system would be purchased. The EHR system will be interoperable across HHSC's 12 hospitals as well as its health centers.

Other major capital investments will include $4.8 million and $1.8 million for renovations at Maui Memorial Medical Center in Wailuku and Hilo Medical Center in Hilo, respectively.

HHSC is the fourth-largest public health system in the country, and 20 percent of its operating budget comes from state-approved appropriations.
