Five Hawaii hospitals are joining together to improve patient care.

Castle Medical Center and the Hawaii Pacific Health’s network of four hospitals will now be able to connect their patients electronic medical records through the state’s health information exchange.

This will cut down on duplication of tests, and it will lead to better planning of patient care.
