ODESSA - Some big changes could be coming this week to Medical Center Hospital in Odessa.

On Tuesday, board members with the Ector County Hospital District will vote on sharing medical information through digital records.

Officials with the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center of the Permian Basin say digitizing medical records will make it easier for doctors to share information.

The hospital's main goal is accuracy, but they also say keeping digital records could be a big cost-saver years down the line.

NewsWest 9 will bring you the results of Tuesday's vote.
