Beginning on April 29th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will begin accepting applications for Round 2 of the COVID-19 Telehealth program.

In 2020, Congress launched the COVID-19 Telehealth Program. Through the program, applicants were issued awards to fund telehealth and connected care services. They have now approved the next round of funding. Application Filing Window is April 29th – May 6th. 

Does your hospital have an Obstetric Command Center as part of your patient safety strategy, or have you considered implementing one? Now may be the time. 

In a recent study published in AJOG, a multi-hospital health system found a 24% reduction in the odds of unexpected term admissions to the NICU with the use of PeriGen’s centralized remote fetal monitoring.
