The Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA) has partnered with Hawaii hospitals and the Premier healthcare alliance to launch the Advanced Hospital Care programme in the state, in a bid to improve care and reduce costs for the residents.

According to the HMSA the improvement programme has saved 25,235 lives and $2.85bn in the past 30 months among the 157 hospitals in 33 US states using it.

The programme will also help Hawaiian hospitals to meet the goals to reduce errors in hospitals set by the US Department of Health and Human Services through the Partnership for Patients programme.

The HMSA will sponsor all eligible Hawaii hospitals to participate in a national four-year programme built by the Premier healthcare alliance.

Castle Medical Center president and CEO Kevin Roberts said that the new partnership will improve care and work collaboratively with some of the best hospitals in the US.
