December 15, 2016 –Progress continues and excitement builds for the New Year as we now have eight IHN hub sites up and running across the state. To date, 27 of the 30 hospitals sites are up with the remaining sites expect to go live later this month. We expect a full “go live” date once the network managed services come up later.
Please also join us in welcoming Steve Constantine, the former Senior Director of Telehealth and VTC Services for GCI ConnectMD of Anchorage, Alaska. Steve recently joined Prairie Health Ventures and will have primary focus growing the IHN.
We look to expand the IHN (Phase 2), we have published an RFP for an additional 30 plus new sites throughout the region via the USAC Healthcare Connect Fund and expect new locations in summer of 2017.
IHN is a member controlled not-for-profit consortium and its board provides governance of the network. We are in the process of standing up the board which we expect to be completed in January. Stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks as we kick-off 2017!
