The leaders of early and growth stage telehealth technology companies chosen to participate will work with healthcare experts to learn how to bridge operational and delivery gaps on topics including: supply chain, reimbursement, IT, regulatory, clinical application, business justification, budgeting, venture capital, and strategic investors. Ideally, successful participants graduate with a paid pilot with a rural hospital system.
