GA leads the way in telemedicine
Georgia has established itself as an innovator in telemedicine technology—using it to expand access to healthcare, transform the way care is delivered and cut overall costs. The Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth network has rapidly expanded in recent years to include nursing homes, school clinics, emergency departments, primary care and other providers with 175 physicians in 40 specialties. Statewide, telemedicine sessions have soared from roughly 200 in 2006 to more than 40,000 this year.
