Mixed emotions were expressed regarding RAVEN, the new electronic health record project, at the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation here in Bethel. Many callers shared their frustration with long wait times with the introduction of RAVEN. Others expressed their continued support and appreciation for all that YKHC has done and continues to do for the YK Delta. YKHC’s Director of Public Relations, Donna Bach, was even able to call in and share some insider information with the listeners. Bach encouraged patients to report any problems they may experience so they can continue to improve while they work through this transitional period.
Among other concerns and topics were cleaning up trash. Numerous questions were also raised regarding last month’s Department of Transportation public meeting and how that will affect Bethel’s new Alaska Territorial Guard park and cemetery.
