Georgia partnership for telehealth, inc. Is a charitable nonprofit corporation which was formed to promote impovements in healthcare and healthcare facilities in rural and underserved communities throughout the state of georgia by assisting in the establishment of telemedicine.
Georgia partnership for telehealth has become one of the most robust, comprehensive networks in the nation. We have seen expansion to include nursing homes, school clinics, jails, clinics, er's, trauma, stroke, primary care, child advocacy, and continuing education. Legislation was passed to mandate that all payers must pay for telemedicine. The network now has over 350 partners and locations. We have seen clinical utilization climb exponentially. While january, 2006 we had a mere 8 encounters, we had over 25,000 encounters for 2010 and doubling that each year. We now have over 175 specialist and healthcare providers particating in the network. Providing access to healthcare via telemedicine has proven to cut costs on travel, work time and provides earlier access to care therefore preventing the large costs of untreated healthcare problems. The georgia telemedicine program is proven. There is a widespread acceptance of its use in georgia.
