Secretary of Health and Human Services visits Children's Hospital

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services visited the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Wednesday morning to highlight the center as a leader in its use of technology.

Kathleen Sebelius toured the facility to see and experience the cutting edge technology, such as electronic medical records, that offers better care and helps to keep more kids from being hospitalized for conditions like childhood asthma. She also talked to families who have experienced improved care thanks to this new program and met with leaders of the Greater Cincinnati Beacon Collaboration.

The Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center uses technology to allow doctors from across the region to better communicate with one another and more easily access the medical history of their patients. Improved coordination had lead to better health outcomes and has kept more children out of the hospital.
