The more you know about your health, or the health of someone you care about, the more you can do to improve the quality of the health care everyone receives. And studies show that access to credible, timely, health information can not only improve the delivery of health care, it can also reduce medication and medical errors, as well as the costs of health care by reducing unnecessary medical tests and services. Health Connect of South Dakota Executive Director, Fran Rice, and Whitney Jibben, who is the current Vice-President of the organization’s board of directors joined us in the studio today. They stopped by to tell us about some upcoming events that can improve your access to that credible, timely, health information we just talked about.
