Family Health Services has just been awarded a grant worth $284,739 from the FCC to go towards its Telehealth Program. The grant came at a very much needed time, since coronavirus has many people staying in their homes. This money will allow the clinic to have access to the proper tools to reach their patients.
“Because of the rules in place prior, we were not eligible or really able to provide telehealth services, that changed almost overnight. So this is in an infrastructure grant that will provide the equipment for moving forward,” stated CEO of Family Health Services, Aaron Houston.
The goal of the grant is to allow clinics to distribute health services through different forms of electronic communication. Family Health Services will provide tablets, telehealth software licenses, and enhanced telehealth procedures to reduce exposure COVID-19.
