Colorado is the latest U.S. community to experiment with telehealth, using telehealth technology to offer health services to its residents.
The move was announced Wednesday by the Colorado Department of Public Health.
Telehealth, which has become popular in the U.K., is similar to a service called a HealthNet, where doctors deliver the same type of services but the patients pay for them.
Colorado’s system is similar in that its residents can choose from various telehealth options to help them get better care.
Colorados health care is already using telecare to offer services such as prescription drug discounts and free haircuts, but it’s also using it to provide services such for prescription drugs, cancer screenings, mental health care and other critical needs.
TeleHealth uses a network of devices that can be controlled and monitored remotely.
Residents can check in and receive telehealth messages and also access the website to check on their health.
Coloradans can use their smartphones or tablets to access telehealth services and check on other health problems.
In the past, Colorados telehealth systems have been limited to a handful of small clinics and have not been widely adopted.
However, the U,S.
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a grant program last month to expand telehealth across the country.
Colorado officials say Colorados program will cover all the clinics in the state that offer telehealth.
Colorads telehealth program is being developed in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Colorado and will start in July 2018.
The grant is to cover the first six months, and the next phase will cover the rest of the year, the state’s health department said.
Coloradas telehealth clinics have been able to expand in other states, including Texas, where the program was recently expanded.
The Colorado Department has about 100 telehealth sites, but there is no timetable for expanding to more communities.
Colorades telehealth system, however, is already seeing some success, with patients and staff receiving a variety of health care services, from prescription drugs to emergency room visits.
The program was designed to provide access to more services, including cancer screenings and vaccinations, the Colorado health department says.
Coloradorans have been testing their telehealth solutions in recent months, testing out telehealth apps such as telehealth-powered blood pressure readings and other tools.
A report released in March said the Colorado telehealth service has improved patient care and the quality of care, while also saving money.
Health care providers are encouraged to test and test in more locations.
Health officials say telehealth providers should not be held to a lower standard because it is a voluntary program and not required by law.
The health department has been working with Colorado for years to develop a plan to expand the system and hopes the grants will be enough to make Colorados telehealth a reality.
