HIMSS Co-Signs Letter Urging House and Senate Committee Leaders to Provide Additional Support to FCC’s Rural Health Care Program

On Wednesday, November 1st, HIMSS joined 35 other organizations in sending a letter to leaders of the House Energy & Commerce Committee and Senate Commerce, Science, & Transportation Committee urging them to provide adequate funding and process reforms for the FCC’s Rural Health Care (RHC) program. The RHC program provides eligible rural healthcare providers access to affordable and robust broadband and telecommunications services necessary for the provision of healthcare. The letter’s recommendations directly reflect HIMSS’ 2017 Congressional Ask -“Invest in Infrastructure to Support 21st-Century Healthcare."
