Applying FCC Funds for Home Monitoring Under COVID-19

AHA has tracked the stories of several rural community hospitals as part of our coverage of COVID-19. Those stories and their podcasts may be found on the AHA website. As part of this series we share how rural hospitals have found new ways of delivering care to patients under COVID-19. Today, we hear from Brian Evans, CEO of Clarke County Hospital in Osceola, Iowa and Corey Martin, senior director at the Iowa Hospital Association, who applied for and received funds to expand telehealth services to include home monitoring.
