WEBINAR: The FCC’s Impact on Telehealth Innovations and Programs
The next webinar will take place on September 22, 2020 at 11am (EST).
Join Connected Nation Michigan (CN Michigan) as we talk with Ryan Palmer, who is the Chief of the Telecommunications Access Policy Division (TAPD) within the Wireline Competition Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The Division that Palmer leads has principal oversight responsibility for all aspects of universal service policy issues, including the COVID-19 Telehealth Program.
During this webinar, we will explore the FCC’s approach to telemedicine both long term and during the pandemic. Learn more about the decisions that impact patients and providers AND ask your questions.
