Wireless Local Hospitals

Medical communities in two Panhandle cities will soon have more resources to share life saving information.

A federal grant of $1.6 million distributed by the Texas A&M Health Science Center will electronically link hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, nursing homes, and home health care providers in Friona and Wellington.

It will also link them up to facilities in Amarillo.

That will allow them to transfer secure patient information even quicker, providing better care.

It could lay the groundwork for the entire state.

They should have the program ready to go in 18 months.
