FCC Telehealth Program Approves $3.23M for Healthcare Providers to Combat COVID-19 Pandemic

February 19, 2023

 

COVID-19 Telehealth Program: RealTime Clinic Receives Funding from FCC


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has made a big announcement: the first applications for the new COVID-19 Telehealth Program have been approved.


RealTime Clinic is proud to be one of the chosen applicants for the FCC's COVID-19 Telehealth Program! With the announced $200 million in funding from Congress under the CARES Act, the FCC has approved eighteen healthcare providers to receive funding totaling $3.23 million to help expand their telehealth efforts in some of the most heavily-affected areas like New York, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania.


RealTime Clinic was granted $192,500 to provide telehealth services to high-risk, immunocompromised children with organ transplants. With this money, we'll be able to buy the devices, communications, and information services we need to provide connected care services and grow our digital health system. We can now offer telehealth visits to those who can't visit our office due to the pandemic.


This is a tremendous honor and thrill for our team, and we are proud to have this chance to help our patients get better care in these challenging times. Our Virtual Care System is made to help patients get the care they need quickly, safely, and with as few interruptions as possible. We look forward to staying true to our mission of giving quality healthcare with compassion and skill.


The FCC's decision to approve funding requests for the COVID-19 Telehealth Program is a big step toward making sure that healthcare providers can give their patients essential services during this tough time. RealTime Clinic is committed to the fight against COVID-19 and is honored to be a part of the FCC's Telehealth Program.


This program, funded by Congress with $200 million under the CARES Act, will provide essential telehealth services to healthcare providers in some of the most heavily-affected areas, like New York, during the coronavirus pandemic. Amazingly, in less than three weeks, the FCC has created new rules, opened the application window, and approved the first set of funding requests totaling $3.23 million.


The FCC's Telehealth Program aims to ensure that healthcare providers have the phones, computers, and other tools they need to give their patients connected care services. With this money, eighteen healthcare providers have the tools they need to expand their telehealth efforts, which will help people in New York, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and other places.


One approved provider is the UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was given $192,500 to provide telehealth services to high-risk, immunocompromised children with organ transplants. Similarly, Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, New York, was granted $312,500 to expand its telehealth services.


During this national emergency, the FCC is committed to spreading the word about good telehealth projects nationwide. The commission staff is working hard to review many applications, and in the future, the FCC will continue processing funding requests as quickly as possible. The FCC's decision to approve funding requests for the COVID-19 Telehealth Program is a big step toward ensuring that healthcare providers can give their patients essential services during this challenging time.


RealTime Clinic is proud to be one of the selected applicants chosen to receive funding from the FCC's COVID-19 Telehealth Program. This grant will allow us to expand our telehealth program, which offers telemedicine, e-visits, virtual visits, and encrypted text messaging services. We are committed to ensuring our patients can access the best care possible during this pandemic.


With the grant, we'll be able to buy the devices, communications services, and information services we need to provide connected care services and grow our digital health system. Our digital health platform is made to help patients get the care they need quickly, safely, and with as few interruptions as possible. We can now offer telehealth visits to people who can't come to our office because of COVID-19, in addition to the services we already provide. Being one of the first teams to get help from the FCC Telehealth Program is a tremendous honor and thrill for our team.


We're thrilled to help our patients get better care in these challenging times and look forward to staying true to our mission of providing quality healthcare with compassion and skill.
