The Washington-based

United States Department of Agriculture

has awarded more than $1.5 million in Rural Utility Service grants to hospitals around the country to fund expansion of eICU critical care services to rural communities.

The telemedicine grants are one component of a rural development initiative that will bring expert healthcare services to six critical access hospitals in rural Nebraska and Iowa. Other hospitals in Maine, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Iowa also have received grants for implementation of eICU programs.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
