Hawaii Pacific Health exchanging records with DOD

Honolulu-based Hawaii Pacific Health is working in partnership with the Department of Defense to share health data between the two organizations.

As part of a nationwide effort to integrate health records of military service members, the DOD established the real-time electronic exchange in April using the eHealth Exchange, a health information exchange headed up by the DOD and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Hawaii Pacific Health uses Epic's Care Everywhere platform, which is now linked to eHealth Exchange. Physicians at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu can now access the health records of patients who have received treatment at any of Hawaii Pacific's facilities.
