Lt. Governor Commits to Telehealth as a Priority in BH Services

Just before Christmas, InnovateOhio, an initiative created by Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted released a report titled “The Ohio Broadband Strategy.” 

The report, called “a crucial step forward in our efforts to bridge the digital divide…” by the Lt. Governor includes telehealth as a top priority of InnovateOhio, whose goal is launching a telehealth pilot providing mental health services to Ohio’s underserved and unserved areas.

“Ohio will work to leverage and create value out of existing health assets for high-speed internet expansion to rural areas for telehealth services. The state will also continue to focus on federal dollars available to support telehealth services in Ohio.”
