ANTHC’s telehealth services allow health care professionals to work together in the Tribal health system to provide quality care and increased access for Alaska Native people across the state. ANTHC has been on the cutting edge of telehealth services since 2001. Through telehealth video conferencing and consultation, people can remain in their home communities by giving them access to the highest quality health care providers and specialists in regional or urban centers not usually available in rural areas.
For more information about the Alaska Tribal Health System’s telehealth network and the technology that makes it possible, visit www.afhcan.org.
The Telehealth Department also manages the ANMC Project ECHO, an educational and guided practice program designed to help empower rural clinicians.
