Tele-Medicine Grants Available

The Association of Telehealth Service Providers announces that the FCC has recently announced a two-year pilot program that would fund up to 85% of the costs for the design, construction and use of dedicated broadband networks in order to expand the availability and use of telehealth and telemedicine, particularly in rural areas. The FCC will look primarily at two criteria: 1. to what extent does the proposed network include rural health care providers; and 2. what is the business plan for eventually making the network self-sustaining.
