October is coming to a close and the holidays are drawing ever closer. Arrowhead is all for celebrating with friends and family and we know that this occasionally leads to the consumption of Alcohol.

It really is a powerful tool that makes your life easier. So without further delay, here are the benefits of having online health records.
At the heart of our organization is the thought, “Put people first and people get healthy”.
