DoD Aims to Ex­pand Use of Tele­health

Health Data Management - - WASHINGTON REPORT -

The Depart­ment of De­fense is ex­pand­ing its abil­ity to de­liver tele­health ser­vices to ac­tive duty mil­i­tary per­son­nel, vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies by des­ig­nat­ing a provider of telemedicine ser­vices to op­er­ate on its net­works.

The agency has is­sued an Au­thor­ity to Op­er­ate (ATO) to Glob­alMed, an in­ter­na­tional provider of tele­health ser­vices, thus en­abling the com­pany to put its vir­tual health ap­pli­ca­tions, hard­ware and soft­ware di­rectly on the DoD net­works.

The vendor says the au­tho­riza­tion will make their so­lu­tions avail­able to the Mil­i­tary Health Sys­tem, the DoD’s in­te­grated health­care sys­tem.
