Hi. I would like to introduce myself as the new Assistant Director of Home Care and Hospice for Lakewood Health System, Staples, MN. I am excited to be a part of the Light Speed grant. My first priority will be to implement the telemedicine home visiting program within our agency. We feel that this will be an excellent service addition to assist our clients in living safer, healthier lives in their own homes.I am in the process of contacting telemedicine equipment providers for equipment specifics and obtaining purchasing bids. It is amazing how the telemedicine industry is expanding and is taking a major role in our health care. I have found a broad range of services offered among the providers allowing not just the monitoring of vital signs, but the ability to monitor the overall health and well-being of the client.We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Blandin Foundation and thank them for their support!
The Blandin Foundation is supporting four standout broadband programs through the Light Speed program. The program’s purpose is to stimulate the deployment of bandwidth intensive applications that connect local institutions to area resident’s home. This post comes from a Light Speed community leader.
