Do Video Telehealth Requirements Curtail Access in Rural States? | ´╗┐mHEALTHINTELLIGENCE

Living in a urban center, I never really thought about the bandwidth requirements for video telehealth, but mandates to bring it to places that are still on effectively dial-up or 3G speeds are short-sighted at best. Then again, my local providers of such services aren’t covered by Medicaid here in North Carolina (or if they are, that’s certainly not promoted!).
