California Telehealth Network is the leading agency in California focusing on increasing access to healthcare through the innovative use of technology, including telehealth, telemedicine and health information exchange. The mission of the California Telehealth Network is to promote advanced information technologies and services to improve access to high quality healthcare focusing on medically underserved and rural Californians.
Connecting to CTN brings high-speed broadband and telehealth capabilities to all healthcare providers including independent, non-profit and for-profit providers. We are committed to making quality care available to all patients, regardless of their location. CTN enables you to provide patients with the services and technologies that can change lives by increasing access to quality healthcare through the CTN network.
Telemedicine and telehealth services, in which medical visits are conducted via software on a secure videoconferencing platform, can help increase provider efficiency while providing a convenient service to patients.
To learn how providers can use this technology to better serve patients, Software Advice conducted a survey gauging public interest in virtual medical visits as a tool for diagnosing and treating minor illnesses.

CTN has taken on the task of sharing with Washington and others how telehealth is benefiting the delivery of healthcare to underserved and vulnerable patient populations – you can help by sharing your stories and successes around the impact of telehealth in healthcare.
