NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Earlier this month, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced the application filing window for the Connected Care Pilot Program, which will make available up to $100 million over three years to provide connected care services enabling telehealth, with an emphasis on providing those services to low-income and veteran patients.
The filing window is open through Dec. 7. The Pilot Program will provide funding for selected pilot projects to cover 85% of the eligible costs of broadband connectivity, network equipment, and information services necessary to provide connected care services.
"The Connected Care Pilot Program is vitally important to the expansion of telehealth and supports some of our most vulnerable patient groups. The very small window of time for a complex application may make it challenging for some organizations to apply," said Laura Kreofsky, Pivot Point Consulting's Vice President of Advisory & Telehealth. "Eligible parties must move quickly to capitalize on this opportunity, and so we are offering complimentary application guidance."
The firm's team of experts is available to help potential applicants navigate the process to ensure they meet the application deadline. Pivot Point Consulting provides services to:
- Assist in determining program eligibility and navigate the application process
