Regional Network Approaches to the FCC Rural Health Pilot

Time 04/23/08 01:15PM-02:30PM

This livestream has concluded. The archive video will be posted here. Archives can take up to two weeks to be posted.

Session Abstract

Regional networks are essential to the success of the FCC's Rural Health Pilot program and provide the access to Internet2. The 69 recipients of the FCC awards are all unique and provide challenges and opportunities for the Regional Network.

This session will present the approaches that 4 of the Regional Networks are taking. This will include the challenges of dealing with multiple award winners and needing to comply with the strict government regulations.

The speakers represent significantly different parts of the country, have dramatically different rural health needs and resources and yet share the same goals of ensuring the success and interoperability of the members of the rural health consortia.
