WASHINGTON, August 23, 2010 – The state of California last week officially launched its Telehealth Network, which is funded by $30 million in federal, state and private money.
The project received more than $21 million from the Federal Communications Commission, $3.6 million from the California Emerging Technology Fund as well as health care business United Healthcare, among other contributors.
The University of California is overseeing the project, which is using broadband and telehealth to link 800 facilities throughout the state.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said at a launch of the project that it will be part of a network of 68 similar telemedicine and online health networks nationwide.
CTN Executive Director Eric Brown said the network expects to activate the first 50 sites on the network over the next few months, including a roll out of electronic health applications.
Partners in the project are available at the new network's web site.
