Rick Haraldson, the Beatrice hospital's CEO, said, "For us, it's an opportunity to see what type of connections we can make."
Haraldson said that as a critical access hospital, these connections are especially important. In a moment of crisis, it pays dividends to have such "touchpoints" already in place.
Haraldson also said Beatrice is excited to have recently become a part of the same electronic health record network with UNMC-Nebraska Medicine. Beatrice Community Hospital & Health Center already is impressed, Haraldson said, but also looking forward to seeing this data used to its full potential, to better help patients.
