Telehealth Technical Assistance Center

The Telehealth Technical Assistance Center’s purpose is to build telehealth capacity in New York’s Adirondack region to improve access to care, bolster patients post-discharge, and support community residents. This web page provides our health care partners the tools and resources they need to successfully develop their own telehealth program to provide greater access to both primary and specialty services that are otherwise difficult to obtain in our rural region.

Telehealth Encounters Tracked in the North Country to Date

{

“I remember a year ago lying on my sofa knowing I couldn’t go to the hospital in the middle of the night while I thought I was having a heart attack. The ambulance and ER would be $1,000 an hour and I couldn’t afford that – I have no insurance. I just stayed there petting my cat…they say petting your cat helps you’re blood pressure! Then, I received free telehealth equipment from ECHD to help me monitor my vital signs, blood sugar and weight. If you had told me a year ago it is all in the weight loss...I lost excessive weight and was able to stop 10 medications including BP and blood sugar medications. The only medication I take now is ½ of a cholesterol pill every other day. I depend on telehealth now. Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night and test my vital signs and still can’t believe how well I am doing. I’m not going to die tonight, I tell myself! Telehealth made everything come together and yesterday I finished signing up for insurance for the first time. I was sobbing all the way through the process. If you think I was riding my horse fast last summer – watch me now that I have health insurance! I fly like the wind.”
