CTN to connect Colo. healthcare facilities to broadband networkPublished 3/31/2010

The Colorado Telehealth Network (CTN) partners received funding commitment letters from the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Rural Health Care Pilot Program totaling $9.7 million. The awarded funds will be used to connect 378 eligible Colorado healthcare facilities to a statewide broadband network.

Hospitals, rural health clinics and other healthcare providers in Colorado will now be able to share critical medical information over large geographical distances, thereby reducing healthcare costs, minimizing patient travel time and providing a better patient care experience.

For the past two years, with the support of many critically important stakeholders, CHA and the Colorado Behavioral Healthcare Council (CBHC) have been committed to successfully advancing the implementation of CTN which was formed through the consolidation of FCC award funds received by the CHA Colorado Health Care Connections project and the CBHC Rocky Mountain Health Net project.

CTN will enable rural and urban providers to hold consultations via video-conference, send and view individual patient medical information and monitor patients’ progress – all of which will improve the quality of care patients receive, especially in rural communities.

Telehealth and telemedicine services provide patients in rural areas with access to critically needed medical specialists, in some instances without leaving their homes or communities. Intensive care doctors and nurses can monitor critically ill patients around the clock and video conferencing allows specialists and mental health professionals to care for patients in different rural locations, often hundreds of miles away.

The network will enhance the delivery of health services, help control costs and make care more affordable, reduce travel time for consumers, reduce the potential for medical errors and enable healthcare providers to share critically important information.
