Access TeleCare’s telemedicine service lines improves patients’ lives through timely access to specialty care, and for many rural communities, that means ensuring access to teleSpecialists in places where network connectivity and reliability can be a challenge.
“For rural health care providers, there can be challenges with network issues and Wi-Fi access, so it’s important to have redundancies with cellular backups,” said Access TeleCare president/CEO Chris Gallagher, M.D. “We ensure that care can happen as soon as it’s needed.”
According to a recent report from the FCC, 22.3 percent of Americans in rural areas lack access to reliable high-speed internet, highlighting the connectivity issues facing many rural hospitals.
