You heard Governor Cayetano stand up here and you heard Senator Inouye stand up here and they talked about concern over quality of care in the neighbor islands of Hawaii. And they talked about making Hawaii the hub for the Pacific Rim, both in exportation and importation of medical care, medical expertise. The Hawaii Health Systems Corporation has stepped up to the plate and we are now a full partner in this process. Today the agenda. We're going to have Dennis Sato, our Chief Information Management, go through the strategies of the system. And I'm going to introduce to you Dr. Mark Schwab, who is a cardiologist at Maui Memorial Medical Center. He's going to speak to you about some clinical applications. The Hawaii Health Systems Corporation (HHSC) itself, Dr. Miike gave you some flavor for it.
