When Telehealth and Broadband Collaborate on Policy

I delivered a webinar presentation hosted by Vsee, a telehealth Solutions vendor. The gist of my presentation was, there can only be great telehealth where there is great broadband. Subsequently, effective broadband policy facilitates telehealth and vice versa.

Here are some links to resources, policy and advocacy groups and articles that supplemented my presentation. Feel free to send me additional items that should be included in this list.
