FCC Commissioner Rosenworcel Calls Telemedicine a Solution to Lowering Healthcare Costs and Improving Quality | BroadbandBreakfast.com

Federal Communications Commission Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel discussed the increasingly important role of telemedicine at the American Telemedicine Association Policy Summit on Friday.

 

Rosenworcel described the growing use of telemedicine, with 10 million Americans benefitting from it in the last year. She highlighted its ability to bring specialists to people who need them, and its large impact on rural areas that are located at significant distances from major healthcare.

 

Implementation of telemedicine has already cut health care costs, she said, by allowing healthcare professionals to monitor patients remotely.

 

Rosenworcel also discussed FCC actions on telemedicine, including the Healthcare Connect Fund, which provides grant to partially cover the cost of broadband service or networks owned by health care providers in rural areas.

 

The FCC is also looking at how spectrum can be utilized in the healthcare field. One application that is already being explored is the wireless monitoring of patients, cutting costs and increasing patient mobility.

 

Rosenworcel also noted FCC efforts to coordinate with other federal agencies whose policies also have an impact on telemedicine. For example, the FCC is currently part of a working group along with the Food and Drug Administration and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.

 

“Together, we are producing a report on an appropriate, risk-based regulatory framework for health information technology and mobile medical applications,” Rosenworcel said.

 

The FCC alone is not enough to maximize the potential of telemedicine technology, she said. Laws and regulations relating to insurance, licensing, malpractice and other healthcare issues vary from state to state. Consequently, telemedicine practices across state borders are severely constrained.

Cell Phones to Fight Epidemics | Federal Telemedicine News

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) manages a program to find out about epidemic outbreaks in real-time using new healthcare monitoring and information collection technology in South America and Africa. 

 

Building off of an original project funded by ONR, researchers are collecting data through a text message-based system set up to take advantage of widespread access to handheld devices in Columbia and Zambia. 

 

Through the collection of photos, videos, texts, and geo-location information from cell phones in a given population, researchers are able to perform complex data analysis, track, and map a fluid situation such as an earthquake or the spread of disease.

 

 Limited technical infrastructure in developing countries often can slow humanitarian aid and hamper responses to disasters. ONR seeks to use smartphone apps since more people in developing countries have cell phone subscriptions than access to the internet throughout the world especially in lower income populations. 

 

According to Commander Joseph Cohn, Program Officer in ONR’s Warfighter Performance Department, “Real time epidemiological data allows military decision-makers to be medically prepared and more locally able to provide quicker responses to potential disease outbreaks in close quarters which is common in military facilities like ships.”
