What chefs are cooking in the kitchen: FCC adding $400 million to rural telemedicine

The Rural Healthcare Connect Fund of $400 million will be allocated to rural hospitals, clinics, mental health centers, local health departments and medical/dental schools to connect them with corresponding urban providers and networks, improving quality and immediacy of care.
