Southwestern State Hospital Staff say it's been 12 years in the making and they're excited to finally launch RxConnect.

They say the technology-based program will help with accuracy and will provide better treatment for individual patients.

"The files as patients repeatedly come into the hospital their files become voluminous," says Hospital CEO Hilary Woo.

"With this new system we're now getting the orders as soon as the doctors input them into Avatar," says Pharmacy Director Gary Milton.

Staff say the new technology will get rid of all tedious paperwork. They say it's the launch of the century.

    Technology has done much to help in the medical field, but it is dedicated doctors, nurses, and staff that use that technology that make it a benefit to patients. By itself technology will do nothing more than collect dust. It must be put to use by people trained to use it properly and to its full capabilities.
