The healthcare industry is facing serious challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic – from equipment shortages to treating patients while practicing social distancing as much as possible. With the increased risk of transmission, many healthcare providers are turning to #telehealth, leveraging technology and robust networks to diagnose, monitor and consult with patients. The Federal Communications Commission has established the COVID-19 Telehealth Program to assist health care providers by providing funding so they can deliver telehealth services to patients remotely in their homes or other locations. Visit the FCC website to learn more about eligible facilities and services that qualify. Summit Broadband has experience providing telecommunications services to many of the healthcare providers and doctors on our fiber network across Central and Southwest Florida.
