    Jeff Mitchell Presents at ATA Federal Telemedicine Policy Summit

    On June 27, 2013, LNGS attorney Jeff Mitchell co-presented with Trent Harkrader, Associate Bureau Chief of the FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau, at the ATA Federal Telemedicine Policy Summit in Washington, D.C.  Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Harkrader discussed the FCC’s launch of the Healthcare Connect Fund (HCCF) to expand access by health care providers to robust broadband networks. Building on lessons learned from 50 Pilot projects testing how to most effectively use broadband to improve the quality and reduce costs of health care in rural areas, the HCCF reforms modernize the FCC’s existing universal service Rural Health Care Program to expand the benefits of telemedicine nationwide.
