Advantage: Easier access saves trips FROM PAGE Dl Last year, they each received nearly $270,000 from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to set up teleconferencing programs. Miles Takaaze, public affairs officer at Hawaii Health Systems Corp., said many of the Neighbor Island hospitals lack the technology and expertise available at Oahu's specialized medical centers. Telemedicine will allow Neighbor Island doctors to access instant help with diagnoses. For example, a trauma doctor could transmit X-rays to specialists in Honolulu while the patient was still in the emergency room "They can basically consult and discuss what condition they're at and see if there is reason to air-vac to Oahu," said Takaaze. The equipment will be used for less-immediate cases, as well "The biggest benefit to the patient is having access to the multiple types of consulting specialists," said Dr. Bobby Baker, chief of staff and radiation oncologist at Maui Memorial Hospital, who participates in the weekly teleconferences for brain tumor patients at St Francis. Doctors from Tripler Army Medical Center, The Queen's Medical Center and other Oahu hospitals also sit in on the hookup. The teleconference has now expanded to include physicians from American Samoa. "Some patients don't even need the gamma knife," Baker said. In the past, patients had to travel to Tripler gets new technology Records will move faster Advertiser Staff Tripler Army Medical Center and the Veterans Administration this week signed an agreement to pool "telehealth" operations for the Pacific to better serve 120,000 veterans in Hawaii, Guam, the Northern Marianas and American Samoa. Because of the new link, health records that have taken a week or more to mail will be available to Tripler specialists instantaneously. "We're going to move very quickly to put telemedicine in place," said David Burge, director of the Spark M. Matsunaga Veterans Affairs Medical and Regional Office Center. "Up until now, a lot of it had to be done through mailings and faxing. You really were limited in terms of the more complex imagery," Also, medical services for veterans and active-duty military members and families on Oahu soon will be centralized at Tripler to help provide "seamless" care, said Maj. Gea Nancy R. Adams of Tripler. The new VA clinic based at Tripler is expected to open in the spring to speed veterans' access to specialty care. Oahu for an exam, because that's where most brain tumor specialists practice. Warren Vincent McPherson, 73, was one Maui patient saved such a trip. Doctors agreed at a teleconference that he is a good candidate for gamma knife treatment, but not right away. They're going to wait a month to see if the lesions in his brain become enlarged. McPherson has been through a lot already the removal of his colon last year and the spread of cancer to his liver. "This would have been a waste of a trip for us because we would have to go back in another month," said his wife, Rosalie McPhersoa Baker also was saved a trip. "Whenever I have a patient that needs gamma knife, I have to personally fry to Oahu to perform the procedure," he said. He expressed excitement at St Francis "opening its doors to the Neighbor Islands ... I don't feel as if I have to give up patient referrals and can still participate directly with medical care with patients."

We have been talking, but until they have a script and a setting, they can't talk about location," said a cautiously optimistic Judy Drosd, Kauai film commissioner, who said the studio has had feelers out to try to film in Hawaii. "We know that if possible, they would like to come back to Kauai." Dinosaurs will return in the new project, according to trade reports, but director Steven Spielberg and screenplay writer Michael Crichton, on whose novel the earlier films were based, will not be involved. Spielberg, who championed the 1993 original "Jurassic Park" and the 1997 sequel, "The Lost World: Jurassic Park," will be directing Tom Cruise in "Minority Report during the planned production time of "Jurassic Park 3." Joe Johnston of "Jumanji" and "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" will direct a script being written by Craig Rosenberg of "Hotel de Love." .
