Christine Sakuda of the Hawaii Primary Care Association talks about her experiences using health technology to connect patients and doctors in Hawaii.

Podcast Description:

This audio program features current news and information from the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

  • News and Numbers: Bloodstream infections are a serious and potentially deadly complication that impact about a quarter of a million hospital patients each year in the U.S.
  • Research News: Connecting patients and doctors on Hawaii’s six major islands is no small task, but that’s just what leaders at the Holomua Project to Improve Transitional Care in Hawaii had in mind when they launched a four-year initiative to help community health centers and hospitals improve care for their shared patients.
  • Navigating Health Care: AHRQ Director Dr. Carolyn Clancy explains why cutting back on health care, especially without consulting your doctor, is a risky choice.
