ABSTRACT
The article reports on the three-year $4.2 million Rural Health Care Pilot Program grant awarded to the Arkansas Telehealth Network by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The funds come from a pot of $417 million the FCC awarded 69 statewide or regional broadband telehealth networks in 42 states and three U.S. territories. Grant recipients can use the funding to support 85 percent of the costs of designing and constructing their high-speed broadband health care networks.
