ESTABLISHES REMOTE MEDICAL CONSULTATION ASSISTANCE GRANT PROGRAM IN THE DOH: The purpose of the program is to award grants, subject to appropriations, to federally qualified health centers to enable and encourage their primary health care providers to employ technology to consult with medical specialists whose expertise may otherwise be difficult for the center’s patients to access, with the intention that this improved access to specialist knowledge will improve the quality of care provided at participating health centers and reduce the need for costly face-to-face patient visits to medical specialist.
