The Lakeland Regional Health System has been awarded a $351,000 grant by the FCC to support telehealth services. The office of Congressman Fred Upton has announced the grant will pay for things including telemedicine carts, tablets, telehealth and remote monitoring equipment, and telehealth software licenses, and the expansion of telehealth infrastructure to allow all 350 healthcare providers in the system to see patients virtually. Spectrum Lakeland Health President Loren Hamel says the grant “will help us expand access, improve the virtual care experience, and keep patients and their providers even safer.” Upton says the money was included in the federal CARES Act.
