Expanding its use of the EHR will enable REHAB to have more accurate insights into patients' care history

REHAB Hospital of the Pacific (REHAB), the only comprehensive medical rehabilitation hospital in Hawaii, is adding modules of the Oracle Health electronic health record (EHR) to all of its facilities. The modules are specific to the needs of rehabilitation facilities and is intended to support REHAB's main 82-bed campus, three outpatient clinics, and a hospital-based physicians' clinic to help treat patients with physical and cognitive disabilities including stroke and spinal cord injuries.
