Ohio lobbyist leads telehealth panel at White House

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The president of the Ohio Telecom Association is leading a panel discussion in Washington on promising practices for improving access to health care in America’s rural areas.

Charley Moses is among presenters at the White House event Wednesday. His panel explores efforts to extend care to high-need rural families and communities through telehealth technology.

Moses’ association began discussions last fall with members of the growing telehealth industry at Cleveland’s Great Lakes Technology Showcase. Telecom and health care industry leaders met there to discuss their changing businesses and the growing reliance on robust broadband networks to deliver quality health care, particularly in remote areas.

The White House event features remarks and collaborative sessions with Obama administration and national telecom officials for state and local government leaders, academics and community practitioners.
