Technology Improvement: Health Education Center
High Desert Medical Center and Harney District Hospital will establish a Health Education Library/Center to offer patients, families, and the general public a place to access and research accurate and up to date health information. A 10? x 12? designated education space has been identified, located in a quiet and yet well utilized area with easy access for both the outpatient clinic clients and hospital in-patients and their families. The library will offer electronic access to selected health education web sites; provide computers for electronic instructional videos and tutorials; a printer for take home copies; and printed resource materials. Patients will also be able to access their own personal health information via the clinic patient portal.
