KEY RESEARCH USING HHIC DATA

Using Hawaii Health Information Corporation hospital data, researchers from the University of Hawaii found higher rates of dementia among hospitalized Native Hawaiians. Dementia was also reported at a younger age than other non-Hawaiians.
HHIC DATA IN THE COMMUNITY

The enhanced HHIC/EMS/DOT data set provided objective and powerful evidence of the protective benefit of helmets for motorcyclists and moped riders.
See HHIC in the new and published articles for a full listing of all the ways HHIC has collaborated with other community members to work to improve healthcare across our islands.
